Good news for Apple products lovers if the reports are to be believed! As reported earlier by various blogsites that Apple is preparing to announce its new iPhone on 12th September to counter over-whelming response of its arch-rival Samsung’s Galaxy SIII, one website – iMore has reconfirmed that Apple will start shipping the new iPhone on 21st September and the same will be launched on 12th September, 2012. Apple is expected to start taking pre-orders for US on the same day. This website further adds that Apple will launch the new iPhone in international markets two weeks later i.e. on October 5, 2012.
Traditionally, there has been some delay between the iPhone announcement and the phone going up for pre-order in the United States. But this time, Apple appears to be in the process of breaking convention keeping in view of urgency of entering the market as early as possible to give competition to Samsung’s Galaxy S III. Historically, Apple does not introduce new product so fast. But now the whole scenario of smartphones have changed dramatically and with the quick launches of state of the art smartphones, Apple can’t afford to stick to its earlier policy of releasing its new products as per its own convenience. Besides Samsung’s Galaxy SIII, the latest offerings of LG’s Optimus 4X smartphone is also getting rave reviews and very good response. Apple has to come out with new offerings to catch up with pent-up demand for faithfuls of Apple and ensuing festival season.
In view of changed circumstances, this time, in my view, Apple will introduce its new iPhone to other countries very fast unlike its earlier tradition of launching its new product in some countries two weeks after initial launch or after few months as in India and China etc. Now, the time has come to release the product SIMULTANEOUSLY in all the countries depending upon the logistics and availability of the product.
If you are planning to buy Apple iPhone then this time you won’t have to wait for long and you can have your priced possession very soon in your hands!
