Trusted sources for Jim Dalrymple have confirmed that the iPhone 5 will not be launching in June. There have been recent reports that Apple would be releasing the device at the end of June, but these claims have been debunked. As noted by Daring Fireball’s Gruber, “What kind of sense would it make for Apple to release or announce a new iPhone in June and not do it at WWDC?”
WWDC will strictly be covering iOS and OS X software, and will not showcase any new hardware. Apple has a history of releasing new iPhones around June and July, but the recent events in Japan combined with various hardware shortages could be throwing their schedule off. We still expect to see a white iPhone this Spring, but there is a good chance that it will be of the iPhone 4 variety.
