The iPhone 5 could be available to pre-order on 12 September

New report suggests Apple will make its new iPhone available to pre-order on the day of its announcement

In July, iMore reported that Apple is planning to unveil its next iPhone at a special event on 12 September. Now, the blog reports that the iPhone 5 will be available to pre-order that same day, and will be shipped nine days later for US customers. For international markets, the iPhone might not hit the shops the first week of October.

The information comes from "sources that have provided iMore with accurate iPhone related launch dates in the past," says the report.

The report claims that Apple is getting "more aggressive" than previous years, by organising the pre-orders on the same day as the unveiling. The iPhone 4S was introduced on 4 October 2011, and the pre-orders didn't begin until the 7 October.

Following iMore's 12 September event claims, further evidence flooded in from publications including AllThingsD and The New York Times, which agreed with iMore's report.

eBay has seen a 70 per cent increase in old iPhones on its site since the September iPhone 5 reports.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
