New iPhone 5 even date September 12, release date September 21.
That's what we're hearing -- the new iPhone (iPhone 5,1) will be announced at a special Apple event on Wednesday, September 12, and will follow up with the release date on Friday, September 21.
Here are the details:
- iPhone 5 event day and release date info
That's earlier than last year by a good 3 weeks, but certainly in the fall range. No word on pre-orders yet, could they be same day, or wait for Friday, September 14?
Does September vs. October make a big difference to anyone here? Or is new iPhone day new iPhone day?

I will wait and see what they announce before jumping to conclusions, especially after last year with all the leaks and how it was going to have a complete redesign. Not that much longer and we will have all the answers. Then everyone can begin speculating about the next iphone.

While I would like to agree forever29, Apple didn't change anything externally on the 4S and it sold like crazy. They may be comfortable saying hey people will buy a square wheel if it has an Apple Logo (you know they would).
Perhaps this next variant is the in between move as they test out the new screen technology and then perfect it in the next with a ultra redesign.
Sometimes a redesign causes more delays for accessories than we would care for.

Im wondering what is the defining factor for people though? some people just want better faster newer others want other features like NFC and other things. But i wonder how many people are like me im content with the speed of my Ip4 and the other features seem gimmicky to me...... All i want is a design refresh (larger screen included) ... if it doesn't look new then i will not be buying it no matter what it comes with....

It'll surely have some "wow" factor (NFC or something like it) that will cause many to upgrade. I've loved my white iPhone 4 since the day I bought it (launch day), but if the new iPhone has better specs and power, I'm definitely upgrading once I have eligibility. I'm really hoping that we get more features for iOS 6 on the new phone, as I think that will play a significant role in whether or not people buy it.

I was thinking I might swap if there's not enough WoW factor but seriously who am I kidding? I love my iPhone and all I need to be happy is a new one, although I wouldn't kick better battery life outta bed and a bigger screen if that's what they are offering. September/October is soon enough for me too, I already have the money sitting in an account waiting to preorder mine( no way I'm lining up again)

After pre-ordering and having it delivered last year...there's no way I would do it any other way. No waiting in lines, no sitting out in heat (or cold, depending on where you are), no uncomfortable floor to try and nap on at 4am...nope, i sat my happy *** on my couch and watched a movie waiting for it to come to me! I'll definitely be doing the same thing this year as well, lines are for chumps!
