With rumors coming from different perspective not stopping, speculations say that Apple may release iPhone 5 in fall or even in 2012. Moreover, a lot of people think that the big “A” will break its tradition of releasing updates every year.

WWDC is usually perceived as Apple’s way of making buzz of their new products soon to be released, thus, it is logical people would think new macs and iPhones will be released after the conference this year. But it’s not happening according to Jim Dalrymple of The Loop; Dalrymple has a good reputation of having good sources inside Apple and his reports is always almost accurate.
Aside from Dalrymple’s sources saying that WWDC will be just a preview of the new iPhone 5, a blog also confirmed it that Apple’s delay for this release would even reach up until 2012 which is a way, way too long to wait. However, it may also be true as Apple said they will be giving developers enough time to update their apps for the new device.
There is a great possibility that if Apple will not release iPhone 5 on WWDC or shortly after, fall will be quickest time for such release together with iOS 5 preinstalled. At least, that’s what a separate rumor says. Moreover, the company will never miss the holiday where it can definitely make higher sales, so techie pundits will not have to wait until 2012 to get their hands on the new iDevice.
