We’ve been waiting for news regarding the iPhone 5 release date for quite some time now. Or actually, we’ve known the it should come soon, but haven’t had the slightest clue on when exactly.

This is also the day when iOS 6 will be officially released to existing hardware.
The iPhone refresh has usually been an annual happening, dropping roughly at the same time every year.
