Reuters: iPhone 5 to ship in September

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.

The sources have confirmed that component suppliers “would begin production either in July or August before shipping components to Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd, flagship of Foxconn Technology Group, for assembly.” One of the tipsters also confirmed earlier reports that the iPhone 5 “will look largely similar to the iPhone 4.”

We shall see.
