iPhone announcement rumored for October 4 As we get closer to October, more information (and speculation) about Apple's plans for the iPhone 5 continue to emerge. The latest is a report indicating Apple will hold a media event on Tuesday, October 4.
Don't assume the iPhone 5 will be available immediately afterward. Recent rumors of production delays suggest it may not be ready as soon as Apple had initially planned.

According to unnamed sources cited by AllThingsD, it will be available, "within a few weeks," of new Apple CEO Tim Cook showing off the device.

There has been a lot of speculation that the iPhone 5 will hit stores some time in October. That seems to be confirmed by leaks from mobile carriers indicating a launch date of October 15.

However, if the report of production problems is accurate, it's possible the only new product available on that date could be the rumored iPhone 4S, a new discount version of the iPhone 4 aimed at the budget smartphone market.
