AT&T Preparing for September Launch of iPhone 5?

When it comes to iPhone 5, Apple is in a great position. Many folks have already planned to pick the device up as soon as it hits the market. Even Apple partners expected the company to bring its next generation smartphone to the market in the summer. According to a new report, AT&T is now preparing for a mid-September launch of iPhone 5. BGR’s sources have indicated that AT&T has started to get the ball rolling by informing employees across the company to finalize their preparations.

Many now expect iPhone 5 to be introduced by the end of August. That could explain why Apple itself is bringing back former employees on a part-time basis in September. AT&T and Verizon certainly can’t wait for this device to hit the market:

We are probably what I would view as maybe a quarter behind what we had talked about in January. We expect that probably sometime in the fall, and I think you will see a significant jump there when we get to that point.

said Verizon Communication’s new CEO, Lowell McAdam. Verizon and AT&T should not have any issues selling a ton of iPhones as long as they do not tweak their plans yet again.

A recent survey by PriceGrabber indicates that 35% of consumers can’t wait to get their hands on iPhone 5 as soon as it hits the market. Most of these folks look for iPhone 5 to have a better battery life. A good number of those who were surveyed wanted reduced prices and 4G support in iPhone 5. This new phone is expected to have a larger screen and better cameras though.

A Community for App Developers

The app development process is not always an easy one. Developers must tackle issues such as how to use caching effectively or how to utilize the state machine to make the app more energy efficient. Inevitably, obstacles and unforeseen issues arise along the way.

Turning somewhere for help is also a natural part of the app development process. That’s why sites like Mobile Orchard exist – to provide the latest in news and tips for all the developers out there. That’s also why a new Facebook community, Kickin’ Apps, was started – to create a space where developers can share best practices and tips, as well as work together to build better apps.

Are you bringing out the full potential of your app? I hope to see you on the Page, where developers can provide a fresh perspective to the whole process. Pay a visit to Kickin’ Apps and let’s start collaborating!
