The iPhone 4S came and it created records worldwide in smartphone sales and revenues, then came the new iPad or the iPad 3 with its magnificent Retina Display. Now that the major releases are done with the next major hardware update by Apple, the new fifth generation iPhone or the iPhone 5 is coming this July according to the Foxconn recruiter.
The World Business Satellite, had released a video footage showing a Foxconn recruiter “looking for 18,000 employees…for the fifth-generation phone.” The Taiyuan based manufacturer were looking for workers to work for the high demand of the new iPhone 5 and when asked that whether the reason for such recruitment hike was the new iPhone 5 release , he responded with “That’s right. It will come out in June.”
The iPhone 4S was released this October and the iPhone 5 release in June will be a slight disappointment for the iPhone 4 users as they had such short time of enjoyment to have the latest thing in hand. Apple had made a fortune with the sales of iPhone 4S and in 2011 Q4 the Cupertino company made a massive $ 13 billion in revenues. The most profitable quarter of any tech company in history.
The Foxconn report can also be far away from truth if we consider the past pre-sales rumors before any iPhone release. Apple handles its products before release with a very tight security trying to prevent any leaks. Before every iDevice release there are numerous rumors going around the Internet. We had reports which almost confirmed the release of the iPhone 5 when the iPhone 4S was announced. Also there were many rumors that Apple is about to release an iPad mini with the new iPad but these all rumors were nothing but just false claims or miscalculated predictions.
However a June release for the next does seem logically very early as the iPhone 4S was released just this October. We expect the iPhone 5 release in mid September/October. But again nothing is impossible, isn’t it.
