iPhone 5 Pre-Orders Start September 30 For October 7 Launch?

According to new tips from insider sources, the iPhone 5 may get a September pre-order date ahead of its October launch. This new information comes from 9to5 Mac, which claims that it heard separately from its own sources that the next-gen iPhone would launch on October 7, a date previously suggested by TiPB. Additionally, pre-orders for the iPhone 5 could start on September 30.

The sources say that Apple has been considering either October 7 or October 14, but with the supply side moving forward smoothly, Apple may consider shooting for the earlier date. Pre-orders for the next-gen iPhone should kick off in the final days of September, but Apple is still considering between either Thursday September 29 or Friday September 30---the latter is looking more likely.

The iPhone 5 launch time frame has been going back and forth between September and October with plenty of dates having been thrown around, including September 7 as well as September 12. However, the well-connected AllThingsD has adamantly insisted that the iPhone 5 would not ship until October.
