Exclusive: iPhone 5 NZ release date

closeThis article could be out of date, as it was published 3 years 2 months 25 days ago.

According to Apple’s rigorous release schedule it should have been out a few months ago. 

Now, with fans clamouring for news of the iPhone 5, Techday has learned from a source within Apple that the device will be launched here in New Zealand on October 9.

The prediction fits in with the latest iPhone 5 speculation internationally, with Wall Street Journal saying last week that US telcos AT&T, Verizon and Sprint are all preparing for the device to hit stores in mid-October, around a month later than expected. 

There is a chance this release could be delayed further if the device’s manufacturer is unable to improve its yield rate, WSJ adds, citing ‘people familiar with the situation’.
