Rumours pin the iPhone 5 release in either the first week of October or on October 21

By - September 5, 2011

Two new rumours regarding the iPhone 5’s release date have begun circulating tech news sites.

The first by Boy Genius Report, pins the release date in the first week of October. It credits this information to a leaked Best Buy document which states, “iPhone 5 product introduction expected, pre-sales begin for expected week 1 launch / Sprint launches iPhone 5.”

Meanwhile This Is My Next reports that the site has received a tip that indicated the iPhone 5’s release date is actually on the 21st of October. The site is displaying a screenshot which shows a Best Buy “National Retail Calendar”, which hints that an unnamed Apple fixture will be installed on October 21. Text in the screenshot includes, “Process Display or Granger will be installing an Apple fixture on the large C2 end displays. Please ensure a manager/key carrier is available at 6:00 am for access to the store.”
