iPhone 5 Release Date Of October 21st Likely Following Best Buy Leak


Regarding the launch of iPhone 5, we have had tons of rumours pointing to an iPhone 5 release in early October. The latest clue about the iPhone 5 release date that we're sharing here points to October 21st as the day when Apple will unveil the next generation iPhone to us all.

Previously many reports indicated the iPhone 5 release date will fall in September however the month has already started and we have yet to see any indication from Apple about an iPhone 5 release event. It is highly likely that pre-orders for iPhone 5 will start from September 30th and according to this scoop, the next generation iPhone will officially be launched on Friday 21st October. One must keep in mind that previously iPhones have been launched on Fridays, irrespective of the month and date.

This clue about the iPhone 5 release date comes from an internal Best Buy retail calendar which explicitly states that a new Apple fixture has to be installed on October 21st. You may think that this fixture installation might be routine work for Best Buy, well wait till you read what's really pointing towards an October 21st iPhone 5 release.

The fact that a manager has to report for duty on 6 A.M. on 21st October sounds fishy. On normal days, managers get to work on 7 A.M. Why would there be a need to disturb a manager for fixture installation? Why is this fixture installation so special? Furthermore, the same thing was arranged last year when the iPhone 4 was released!

Moreover, it is also being said that Best Buy Mobile managers have a big meeting scheduled for October 10th in which they will discuss about upcoming big release. Now this does get us wondering about the iPhone 5 release date which is undoubtedly going to be in October. Apple is likely to stick with its Friday iPhone release pattern and even if October 21st isn't the correct date, in the month of October, Friday falls on the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th. So if the meeting is on October 10th, there are three Fridays on which an iPhone 5 release is possible in this particular month.

In a nutshell, lets pin our hopes on this iPhone 5 release date of October 21st, as it doesn't make sense for Apple to delay the launch of its next flagship smartphone any further. As always, we'll keep you posted on all future developments regarding the iPhone 5. In the meantime, do leave us a comment down below and tell us what you think about iPhone 5 release on October 21st.

    The iPhone 4 launched last year on Thursday 24th June, not a Friday.

    There are numerous dates being flung around and until such time as Apple release any information I would take everything with a pinch of salt.
