Fresh rumours have surfaced that indicate the iPhone 5 may be released on 21st October, the iPod's 10th birthday, according to The Telegraph.

The latest rumoured date appears to be based on an alleged leaked note from a branch of Best Buy in the US, in which an ‘Apple fixture installation' upgrade is scheduled for 6am on 21st October.

However Apple blog, MacRumors, said that the installation upgrade referred to in the note is simply an upgrade to the in-store iPad display.

 Nothing official has yet been confirmed about the much anticipated iPhone 5, but various rumours based on leaks from Asia suggest that the new device will have a slightly larger screen than its predecessor, use a faster processor - probably the same A5 chip that powers the iPad 2 - and a better camera.

Deutsche Telekom AG began allowing customers to pre-order the next generation iPhone on 5th September, the company said that it in anticipation of supply bottlenecks for the device, according to Bloomberg.

Apple does tend to launch new hardware on Fridays and 21st October is a Friday.

The iPhone has traditionally been announced in June, at Apple's WWDC event in San Francisco, but this year the announcement has been pushed back to the autumn, when updates to the iPod range are usually announced.

I agree with Ailyn 100%

We still don’t know all iphone 4 functions so for iphone 5 have to be in the market next 4-6 years.
We use to know Mac is the best product and technology so you/we can wait but at least get us the best. Like always.

@ailyn ... I could have agreed with you but unfortunately the Industry is moving very fast, there is so much competition, and if u want to be the leader you must have the latest hi-tech .... Now there are much better phones than iphone 4 in the market ... Apple can't just wait for 5-7 years .... 5-7 years things will change big time ....
