iPhone 5 Release Date Rumor: October 7 For New iPhones?

And the iPhone 5 release date rumor-palooza continues.

Apple blog 9to5Mac, citing anonymous sources, is reporting that Apple plans to release their next generation iPhones on October 7, with the devices available for pre-order through the Apple website on September 30. This claim jibes with a rumor by "iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch blog" TiPb , which fingered October 7 as the device's release date. An emphatic All Things Digital report also gives October as the definite--*definite*--release month of the new iPhone.

The iPhone 5 was first rumored by AllThingsD to be released some time in September, but recent rumors have suggested an October release date. iPhone 5 features, like the release date, are all pure speculation at this point, though popular rumors suggest the dual-core A5 processor and an upgrade in megapixels for the rear-facing camera.

Still no word from Apple, of course, as to when their newest iPhone will be released. For all the latest unconfirmed speculation about Steve Jobs and company's future products, check out the latest edition of our regular series, This Week In Apple Rumors.
