For the most part, I think it’s pretty clear that the iPhone 5 will be launching sometime in the near future. When exactly? Well that depends on if the rumors are correct. It looks like FedEx helped us confirm a date…
According to MacRumors:
MacRumors has received word that FedEx is making preparations for a “surge volume” event during the period of September 21-24, coinciding with rumors of an iPhone launch in the United States and several other countries on Friday, September 21. While neither Apple nor the iPhone 5 has been specifically mentioned as the source of the surge for FedEx, the iPhone 5 is expected to be introduced at next Wednesday’s media event, and a launch nine days later would be in line with several past product debuts.
So it’s a done deal right? Well not exactly. The fact that FedEx has something planned means they intend on shipping massive quantities of a product, but is it the iPhone 5? Obviousness aside, I’m leaning towards yes.
In case you’re unaware, FedEx is one of Apple’s partners in shipping new products. Not to say that this is the case, but does a text-based email that could have easily been faked really mean anything? Nope, but it helps reaffirm what we want to hear.
