As per stated by latest inside information revealed on Monday, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) would allow taking pre-orders for its latest model of iPhone on September 12 after an extraordinary event declaring the device, with US deliveries to start from Sept. 21.
Earlier reports revealed the date of Sept. 12 as the date Apple intends to declare the newest iPhone although the rumors were devoid of details about a definite launch timeline.
Latest information from iMore, one of the first to engage with the Sept. 12 “special event,” points to a pre-order round slated for the same day, with those units scheduled for US shipment nine days afterward.
The site mentions two different sources which offered the supposed launch timeline, one who formerly provided the Sept. 12 event, and the other one has given perfect information in the past.
Apple shares were changing hand at $626.56 during Monday trading action and finally gained +8.30 points or 1.34% to settle at 630.00. Apple’s previous settlement around that level was April 10 when it finished the day at $628.44.
Monday’s report agrees with Apple’s conventional launch timetable, although it looks like the firm will be more aggressive with the approaching smartphone. When the iPhone 4S was declared on Oct. 4, 2011, pre-orders for the device started three days afterward before shipments on Oct. 14.
The first lot moved to the US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and the UK, while other global markets trailed by month’s end. At the time, the iPhone 4S launch was the best ever for Apple.
It was observed on the beginning of Monday that AT&T (NYSE:T) is intending on launching its network-specific versions of the latest iPhone in late September, providing further verification to the iMore report.
