Pre-Order iPhone 5 on September 30?

You may be able to pre-order iPhone 5 as soon as September 30, with the actual launch still occurring in early October, according to a new report from 9to5mac.

Noting that the precise launch and pre-order dates could likely change again, 9to5mac says:

We are reasonably confident, though, that as of today, Apple is planning to unleash their next iPhone on October 7th and offer pre-orders starting on September 29th or 30th.

Pre-orders for the next iPhone would be a welcome change from Apple’s most recent iOS device launch, the iPad 2, which consistently sold out and was nearly impossible to get your hands on for several months. The demand for past iPhone and iPad product launches practically guarantees that iPhone 5 will sell out immediately as well, making pre-orders even more important.

iPhone 5 is expected to have a dual core A5 CPU, an 8MP camera, possibly a redesigned case resembling the MacRumors mockup above, and there is some recent evidence pointing to 4G LTE capabilities. Stay tuned for more.
