The fact that Apple didn’t declare an iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S today makes a September release date appear ever-more probable. iOS 5, which was exposed today, was also given the blurred release date of ‘this fall’ (autumn) – we’ve put two and two together and come out with September; so will iOS 5 launch with the iPhone 5?
It’s not that we were exactly expecting a new iPhone given the multitude of leaks and rumours suggesting that we wouldn’t see such a thing this WWDC, but we’re still a little bit disappointed.
Still, the iOS 5 features will make the iPhone 4 (and iPhone 3GS, would you believe) feel like a new phone, however, bringing iMessage, new notifications, integrated Twitter support and an improved camera interface to the legacy handsets.
The iPad will also be getting the software upgrade, leading to further speculation that we’ll also see an iPad 3 launch this year
