According to a recent report, Apple will begin production of their 5th-gen iPhone in August, prior to a release in Q3 2011. The information comes to us via Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty.
Huberty insists that she received information indicating the August production date and Q3 release date, and continued to indicate that a lower-priced model of the iPhone, as well as an Apple-branded TV may be in the works.
Personally, I very much doubt that the information is true – I find it highly unlikely that Apple would only be beginning production in August for a release which will occur, according to Huberty, by the end of September at the latest. This would surely result in a launch day catastrophe – I think that Apple is far more likely to build stock in significantly more advance that Huberty indicates.
