The iPhone 5 Release Timeline (All dates)

The rumors and news about the iPhone 5 are endless , a lot of questions in the minds of the iPhone fans, like : What is the price  of the iPhone 5 ?, From where can I get the iPhone 5 ? What about the design of the iPhone 5 ? Is it real that the iPhone 5 will be with  8 Mega-Pixel camera ? But the most important question is What is the release date of the iPhone  5 ?

In this post we collect the the complete release timeline of the iPhone 5:

When will Apple announced the iPhone 5?

When will I be able to preorder the iPhone 5?

When is the iPhone 5 coming out?

So here’s what we think Apple’s iPhone 5 Release Timeline looks like:

September 14th – Apple will send members of the press invites to attend their traditional Fall Event.

September 21st – Will be the day the event will be held in the San Francisco area.

September 28th – Pre-orders will be taken online.

October 7th – The iPhone 5 will finally be available to the masses.

How would we come up with these release dates? Let’s work backwards from October 7th.

October 7th: October 7th, 2011 is the most consistently rumored date for the iPhone 5′s release, and there’s some strong evidence to back it up… for example, this leaked internal doc from Sprint saying the iPhone 5 will go on sale in the first week of October. Best Buy says the same thing.

If the iPhone 5 doesn’t actually start hitting stores on October 7th, we’d be gobsmacked if it wasn’t so close to this date as to not make any difference. So if October 7th’s the release date, when can you order one?

September 28th: It’s possible that Apple will offer iPhone 5 preorders the same day as they announce the iPhone 5, but that’s not likely based on Apple’s recent history. When Apple announced the iPhone 4 on June 7th of last year, preorders started eight days later on June 15th… and units started hitting stores on June 24th. If Apple stays consistent — which it usually does — the iPhone 5 will be available to preorder nine days before it debuts.

September 21st: If Apple sticks to the release timeline of the iPhone 4, a week and a half or so before preorders are made available, Apple will host their Fall Event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, California and officially unveil the iPhone 5.

September 14th: Traditionally, Apple sends out media invites a full week before they hold an event. This gives all the glamorous and important members of the press time to get to the West Coast. Most of the events this year have been held on a Wednesday, and three of the last four Fall media events, at which Apple traditionally announces new iPods, have occurred on Wednesday. Invites to their events typically feature some short tagline that gives a hint as to what we can expect, yet at the same time veiling the announcement with enough secrecy so as not to spoil the surprise.
