has always released their newest iPhone in June. This was changed with
their previous release, the iPhone 4S, which was made available in
October. Apple generally uses the Worldwide Developers Conference
(WWDC), often held in June (though the dates vary), to announce its
latest products. Reports say this year the conference will be held June
10-15. Many sources have released iPhone 5 rumors claiming that it will be released around the date of the conference.
