iPhone 5 coming in June?


Mashable is suggesting that the iPhone 5 is due in June:

According to a Foxconn recruiter, we’ll see a new iPhone in June of this year.

The recruiter suggested the iPhone would be headed our way this summer in an interview with TV Tokyo’s “World Business Satellite” broadcast Monday.

In the interview, a reporter asked the recruiter how many people the company was looking to hire, and he answered “We’re looking for 18,000 employees … for the fifth-generation phone.”

The reporter went on to clarify that the recruiter was talking about the iPhone 5, and the recruiter added that the next generation of the handset will come out in June.

The iPhone 5 — or, if Apple maintains the naming scheme it started with the iPad, the “new iPhone” — will actually be the 6th iPhone released by the company.

After the the initial iPhone release, the company launched an iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and iPhone 4S.

The June rumor, of course, should be taken with a grain of salt. Rumors of the iPhone 5 started almost immediately after the announcement of the iPhone 4S last year.

  • Speaking of “grain of salt” that’s about what they want to pay people to make them.

  • “Rumors of the iPhone 5 started almost immediately after the announcement of the iPhone 4S last year.” … along with spam and viruses circulated under the guise of winning free iPhone’s. To the level anyone should be sceptical of any offers in regard to an “iPhone 5” (unless they want a computer virus as a bonus)
