iPhone 5 Production Delays Till September 2011

In one of our post earlier, we mentioned that the new iPhone 5 will be released in late June. All these reports proved wrong as we have come to know lately that Apple will start the production of its new smarphone in September, 2011. As we told you in our recent post that Apple is not going to announce its new iPhone 5 at Worldwide Developers Conference 2011 will only offer the previews of iOS 5 and Mac OS X Lion. Our present report is based on the statement of Avian Securities suggesting that the iPhone 5 release may be late till early 2012. The Avian Securities based their claim on the fact that the Apple will start the production of new iPhone 5 in September 2011; therefore it will be released later in early 2012.

The analysts at Avian Securities said that their assumption that the iPhone 5 release can be late till early 2012 is based on the words of key component suppliers:

Supporting out comments over the last month, conversations with yet another key component supplier indicates that production for iPhone-5 will begin in September. This is consistent with Avian findings in the supply chain in recent months and we believe the consensus view is moving towards this scenario. In addition, our conversations also indicate the existence of a lower-spec/lower-priced iPhone in Apple’s roadmap. However, while our contacts have seen the placeholder in the Apple roadmap, they do not yet have insight into specs or production timing. This leads us to believe that any launch is likely a very late 2011 or more likely a 2012 event. As a reminder, Avian has uncovered several data-points in recent months pointing to the existence of a lower-spec/lower-price iPhone. A lower-spec/lower-price iPhone has also been speculated in the press and gadget blogs, though we do not believe consensus currently discounts the existence of such a model.

We are little skeptical here about the Apple faith that it shows in its iPhone 4 as it has to stand against the increasing competition that is mounting every single day with more enhanced features and specifications. Perhaps, Apple’s decision to delay the release date for iPhone 5 is in fact its confidence that it showed on its iPhone 4. We hope that Apple this move won’t go wrong or they end up losing a good share of market. Another that is worth noting is Apple decision to release new iPhone 5 after the holiday season. We must appreciate this step as no one likes to buy outdated items in the holiday season.

We can just hope that Apple is anticipating things wisely here and will come strongly with the release of iPhone 5.
