Rumor: New iPhone preorders to start September 12

According to tech blog iMore, not only will Apple announce the next iPhone on September 12, but it will also begin accepting preorders for the device.


The report, filed by Rene Ritchie at iMore, states that Apple will begin its U.S. preorders on September 12 while international orders should begin the first week of October, likely October 5.

Shipments from preordered iPhones should reach customers about nine days later, according to the report. In years past, many customers who preorder their iPhones have received them a day or two earlier than the scheduled release date.

Ritchie writes that iMore's sources for this story have reported accurate information in the past, though no official word from Apple has been released.

Despite a plethora of rumors surrounding the alleged iPad Mini, no date has been mentioned regarding its release. Whether the September 12 announcement will include the iPad Mini, a rumored new dock connector for iOS devices, or new iPods remains to be seen.

With the rumored announcement date about a month away, what are you most hoping for from Apple? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
