Forbes reports that while Apple may be able to introduce an iPhone 5 at any time of their choosing, the chips required to produce a well-designed 4G LTE smartphone simply won’t be around until late this year at the earliest, and probably 2012.

Contrary to earlier reports that the iPhone 5 won’t enter production until September and ship in October, three sources with “direct knowledge” of Apple’s supply chain have now confirmed a summer production ramp-up for a September ship date.
New details have emerged from AppleInsider about the next generation iPhone according to a report issued today by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo with Concord Securities.
After what feels like forever but is actually a *mere* 10 months, we will finally get to see the white iPhone 4s hitting the shelves. The white iPhone 4, or unicorn 4 as I like to sometimes call it, was largely delayed because of some stupid paint issue. Apple should have bit the bullet and not bothered releasing this unicorn into the wild.
Analysts Avian Securities claim that the iPhone 5 should go into production in September. This would likely see an iPhone 5 launch in late 2011 or early 2012. This report is based on a conversation that Avian Securities had with a “key component supplier” and was brought to our attention via Apple Insider.
Brian White, of Ticonderoga Securities, is dubious of the many rumors about delays regarding the iPhone 5. He reasons that there is a pattern of activity within the supply chain that is counter-intuitive to a delayed launch.
After the Apple Store went down this morning, seemingly nothing changed. So what was all the fuss?
Earlier this month, we reported and responded to claims that the iPhone 5 might not be released until fall. Now, it seems that new reports are suggesting that, while iPhone 5 will not be released at WWDC, it will still be launched later in the same month.
An analyst with Oppenheimer & Co says that, converse to the claim’s being made about Sony providing 8MP camera modules for the iPhone 5 (which we reported on just earlier today!), Apple will remain with their original supplier, OmniVision. Yair…
Howard Stringer, Sony’s CEO, left the preverbal cat of the bag when he casually mentioned that they are providing Apple with an 8MP camera for the next generation of iPhone, the iPhone 5.
An exciting report comes to us from TechCrunch, who claims that, in addition to iOS 5 not being released until fall, iOS 5 will gain advanced integration of Siri artificial intelligence technology, enabling deep, thorough voice control and intelligent searching.
The blogoshpere is buzzing with rumors upon rumors today that the iPhone 5 will indeed not be released at WWDC this June, and instead the keynote will ONLY focus on iOS 5 and OS X Lion. While the rumors are coming from big names, here is why we think they’re false.

According to a report from China Times, the iPhone 5 has now entered trial production, and is scheduled for a wide scale release in Q3 of this year. This lines up well with the traditional late June/early July release schedule.
According to recent reports, the upcoming iPhone 5, which is expected to be released around June, may in fact use a very similar design to the iPhone 4. The rumor suggests that while the screen will become larger (and go edge-to-edge), the shape and form will remain the same.
iDealsChina, who previously reported solid info about the iPod Nano, are at it again. Today they posted a model image of what seems to be an iPhone 5 with a slightly larger screen than the current iPhone 4.
