Google "iPhone 5 release date" and the first three results say June, October, and September, respectively.

Panasonic TH-42PE7U plasma, Toshiba HD-D3, PS3, Shaw DCX3400, Yamaha HTR-6160, Polk 6.1, Belkin PF30, Harmony 700

I was told that CTV had a little blurb on the news this morning but I cannot find anything.

Nothing announced today, or any time soon. September is when Apple is expected to announce the new iPhone.

don't worry... when there's something of substance to announce you'll be hard pressed to find anything to read other than news about apple.

It 's won't be called the iPhone 5 either. It will most likely be called iPhone 6 to go along with the release of iOS 6 later this year (the 4S was the 5th iPhone). Either that or they will call it the "new iPhone".

They won't go and skip a number like that as it would lead to a lot of confusion. iPhone naming doesn't necessarily match that of the iOS version that it runs (a good example being the iPhone 4S).

I could see them just start calling it iPhone though, as it would match what they do with their computers & the iPad.

And for the first few months it will have the unofficial name "The new iPhone".

If they dropped the numbering system for the Ipad I doubt they will keep it for their phones.

I also agree. It doesn't make sense to keep going up in version numbers for the iPhone.

There was a iPhone 3G not a iPhone 3, and it was the second iPhone, the 3GS was the third. So the next iPhone will be the 6th version, so following Apple's history of naming devices it will be a iPhone 6, although now it will more than likely be called new iPhone. It will not be called a iPhone 5.

...then how do you justify them calling the current phone iPhone 4S?

4S = 4 Speed
It is the 5th iPhone, but having little to truly different it from the 4 they call it the 4S. It fills a space in Apple's tic tok release cycle.
