What is the expected release date of the next iPhone?

I understand that Apple usually releases the iPhone during June or July.

Have they announced on exactly which date they will release the next iPhone?

    I'm hoping sometime in June / July this year, although at this stage - nobody knows for sure (apart from Apple employees).

    They just released the White version of the v4 iPhone.  Not sure why it took them so long, but as to when the v5 comes out - I'm as eager as you.

    Does anyone else know when the IPhone 5 will be released?

    It is usually announced in June at Apple's World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC), and is made available within a couple of weeks. This year there have been some rumors that it will be announced in September :

    1) to coincide with the iPod Touch refresh usually done in September (Christmas season)
    2) as the white iPhone was just released the last week of May
    3) as the Verizon iPhone was released in January

    I'm hoping for a June release, but I'm not holding my breath.
