We're now confused. Which is it, DigiTimes?
Either way, both reports had one thing in common: Pegatron would begin shipping those iPhone 5s in September. That points to an October launch possibly being in play. October has been bandied about of late as a launch date.
There's more evidence, as well: word is that Canadian carrier Telus will begin selling the iPhone 5 on Oct. 1. That's Canada, but Apple's practice of launching new devices in numerous regions at the same time would tend to confirm an Oct. 1 date for the U.S., as well.
Perhaps the most telling tidbit from this report is that it confirms more business for Pegatron. It was reported earlier that Pegatron had won an exclusive contract for the iPad 3, as Apple seems to be looking to diversify its manufacturing, away from Foxconn.
These are all release date rumors, and we still have the device rumors. iPhone 4S or iPhone 5? Or both, with the iPhone 4S serving as a lower cost device for mid-level buyers? iPhone 3GS available for free with a contract? Maximum changes for the iPhone 5 or minimal changes?
