Had a very, VERY interesting conversation tonight with an insider friend who works for Apple. There is plenty of debate going around whether it will be an October or September release and I couldn’t help but ask him which it would be. While he made it clear that “Apple has not made any announcements as to the release date of the next iPhone” he also made it very clear that iOS 5 will be released in September and that “if one were to look at the history of the iOS updates in relation to the next model iPhone, they are typically done together” he said in a very matter of fact way.

I take this to mean that we will see the next iPhone before the end of September.
