Pocket Gamer is reporting that they have insider information leading them to believe that Apple is planning an October 5th reveal of their latest iPhone.

The press conference will supposedly take place on October 5th, with a full release of the platform about a week later.

We’ve known for a while that Apple was planning a new iPhone for this Fall, but as yet nobody has confirmed a launch date. This is the latest of many (many) rumors about the specific launch date.

As for whether this is just another outlet taking a wild guess and calling it a “substantiated rumor” that’s for you to decide.

Regardless, a new iPhone launch would be huge news for the video game industry so we’ll continue monitoring this to see if any concrete information comes up.
