    Default Will Apple announce the new iPhone at WWDC '12 ?

    OK friends, lets see here. we are ten days away from Apple announcing some new exciting products to make us all happy. We all think iOS6 is one of them, along with the new TV . But the main thing we all have been waiting for is the new iPhone/iphone 5/whateverTheyDecideToCall it.....

    Now while Rene along with many other experts think that the next iPhone wont be released till this fall, I personally think that IF Apple were to announce it on June 11th, then it would come out within couple weeks after announcement and if theyre gonna wait till September/October to release it, they would simply not mention it at all in June and will have announce it during their fall event.

    Nope. A new phone announced today means no phone sales for the next 4 months. Marketing stupidity is not something Apple is guilty of

    True. But all the recent rumors point to some sort of iPhone announcement along with iOS6 .
    So you dont think they will mention anything about a new phone at WWDC ?


    I personally think they will announce the new phone AND release it before end of June ( June 29th )

    We all know that it's coming... but, IMHO, not until fall. Apple will announce it and release it in the fall. I don't see any announcement about the next iPhone at WWDC.

    As others have said, it would kill the sales of the current model... very similar to what's happening with the MacBooks right now... people aren't buying the current crop because the new ones are on the way ... and Apple hasn't even announced them yet.

    Far as we've heard, no new iOS devices this summer.

    Look for it fall 2012

    I don't see any reason for Apple to release it any sooner than the typical 1 year update cycle. IF Apple says anything about the next phone it would likely be something for developers regarding resolution changes and that would more likely be in the developer kit say 30 days prior to launch and have a nice NDA to go with it.

    My money is still on a fall release. However it seems that we are further along in the rumor mill than we were at this time last year. Maybe it's just my perception or that I'm paying more attention this year than last. I wouldn't be completely shocked to see something revealed at WWDC but my money is still on the fall.

    Based on my sources. I think we'll be seeing iOS6 and some internal updates with the MacBook line such as retina display and Ivy Bridge processors. And i heard the new iPhone will be revealed but starts shipping in October.

    I'm not sure where you're getting your rumors but I haven't seen any that say anything other than the iPhone will be available this fall.

    I can't see apple announcing the new iphone months ahead. It just isn't like apple to announce something and not release it relatively quick after the announcement. I think they will show IOS6 but no iphone.

    A little twist to possibly the NEW iPhone being released sooner than the fall. In today's Target flyer, they have the iPhone 4S on sale for $149. I thought they don't cut prices until a new iPhone is or is about to be released. I still believe it will be released in October, but you never know.

    I agree with you here, redraider. I think Apple will show iOS 6 but not the new iPhone.

    I remember hearing about that awhile back and it seems it is only target and not everywhere so most likely means nothing sadly.

    Lol iOS 6 beta common on now iPhone beta? If not shortly. If apple was to unveil the iPhone this month, iOS 6 beta s would have been pushed by now. Going by last year, wwdc will introduce ios6 and released as beta to developers.
