Take this with a grain of salt. iPhone 5 launch event is currently said to happen on October 5th , reports AllthingsD, according to an ‘unnamed source’.

T-Mobile top brass has clearly denied that the carrier would land iPhone 5 anytime in 2011. “We are not going to get the iPhone 5 this year,” said Cole Brodman, T-Mobile Chief Marketing Officer, speaking at a meeting for T-Mobile employees. T-Mobile would be the only major US carrier that would not be offering iPhone 5 at its expected October launch, if this report comes true.
Now, Broadman’s statement here leaves scope for a number of other posiblities. For one, there could be no iPhone 5 launch in 2011 at all. Also, Broadman does not mention iPhone 4S or iPhone 4GS, which has also been doing the rounds in the rumor district for long. Another possibility is that T-Mobile might offer the iPhone 5 in the beginning of 2012.
The big event, when all speculations come to rest either by becoming facts or going six feet under,is not far now. Apple is expected to roll-out the invites in the coming weeks.
A 64GB variant has been into rumors before the launch of every iPhone, but it never happened. Sadly, its not happening for iPhone 5 too, a product listing on Vodafone’s website suggests.
Vodafone Sure Signal, a signal boaster for their network, got listed on their website along with list of compatible phones. The website lists four iPhone 5 models, including both Black and White color in 16GB and 32GB variants. It also includes all previous versions of iPhone. Now, this could very well be a presumption from Vodafone, but if they are right Apple’s next generation iPhone would not upgrade in storage capacity. The major specs upgrade rumored for iPhone 5 so far include an 8 megapixel camera and A5 processor (which is used in iPad 2)
The sunnier side is that white iPhone 5 would be available from the launch, which sadly got delayed 10 months during in case of iPhone 4.
Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 5 in the coming weeks while the phone is rumored to go on sale sometime in October.
Apple’s cloud photo sharing service Photo Stream just leaked what looks like the icon for the next version of iPhone. The icon shows an iPhone with larger screen and rectangular home button, analogous to the previous iPhone 5 rumors. Many rumors suggest that iPhone 5 would not undergo a major tweak but Apple would not wait one and a half year to release a new iPhone that looks similar to earlier versions. The icon may also be of a smaller iPhone 4, reports 9to5mac. Read more
