Apple will launch its brand new iPhone 5 on October 9 in New Zealand, reports TechDay. The sources that are aware of Apple’s product launch roadmap claims that fifth generation iPhone 5 could hit the streets on October 9, 2011 – in New Zealand.
Now, with fans clamoring for news of the iPhone 5, Techday has learned from a source within Apple that the device will be launched here in New Zealand on October 9.
Recent report suggests that Apple is considering an October 7 release for the iPhone 5 with preorders starting September 30. If that date is correct, we can safely assume that iPhone 5 will hit New Zealand streets on Oct.9. However, the claim partly lines up with the recent USA Today and WSJ Report.
Still the October 9th Launch date seems unrealistic as it falls on Sunday. Apple has historically had every iPhone release on a Thursday or Friday evening. Last year, iPhone 4 was launched on July 30th in New Zealand (i.e. on Friday). But the Sunday launch cannot be denied completely.
The company always launches its next model first in USA followed by in other countries worldwide. It is unlikely that it will launch the fifth generation iPhone device both in the U.S. and New Zealand simultaneously.
If accurate, Apple’s fall media event will take place in September where the company is anticipated to announce cheaper iPhone handset alongside iPhone 5, iOS 5 and iCloud.
Apple hasn’t sent official invitations yet, but the iPod media event will likely take place in San Francisco, the scene of many such special events. In that case, the venue is likely to be the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
