iPhone 5 production starts August: analyst

According to a new analyst report, the next generation iPhone will go into production "mid to late August"

Apple's next iPhone is near according to Morgan Stanley analyst, Katy Huberty,who wrote in a note to investors: "Apple's next iPhone will begin production in mid to late August." The note was issued yesterday after meetings with Apple's supply chain companies in Taiwan. She has predicted that the next generation iPhone will be released in the third quarter of this year.

As reported by Apple Insider, Huberty also noted that she believes an Apple branded television set is in its "early design stages", which reaffirms rumours from last week.

Lower priced iPhones could be on their way according to Huberty, who suggests that Apple is forecasting a large iPhone unit increase "on the back of new products at potentially lower price points."

Huberty believes that Apple's share price will rise over the next 60 days not only because of the new iPhone, but also due to the Japan's recovery from the recent natural disasters and nuclear worries. Huberty wrote: "Post-Japan earthquake production constraints have eased, putting upward pressure on iPad shipments." She added: "Apple is negotiating price cuts with some suppliers, potentially boosting margins modestly in the June quarter and more in September."

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
