The latest and very much awaited sixth generation Apple iPhone 5 is scheduled to release on 12th September 2012 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco), and will be available for sale from 21st September 2012. It is also speculated that Apple will also release iPad Mini on the same date or simultaneously. There is a lot of rumors regarding the proposed features of the new Apple iPhone 5.
With the launch of iPhone 5, Apple Inc is also expected to launch the Air Play features in its iOS 6 device. But we all need to wait till September 12th to witness the live demo of AirPlay Direct (if its true 🙂 ). Apart from AirPlay Apple is also said to introduce the 19-pin dock connector instead of the 30 pin dock connector used in present iPhone’s.
“the device will introduce a new 19-pin power and control connector on its base, dumping the 30-pin connector first introduced with the third-generation iPod in April 2003.”
