We are expecting Apple to announce the iPhone 5 in September, but now it seems that it may actually launch a little earlier than we had thought, according to the guys over at CNET UK.
The guys from CNET have spotted a job listing for Apple in the UK, and the job listing is looking for ‘full time iPhone sales staff’, who will work for the company from the 16th of August 2011 to the 29th of August 2011.
The company who has listed the job offering are looking to hire staff around the UK, and after CNET did some research on them they found out that they have worked with Apple before.
So it looks like we may have a launch date of August the 16th for the iPhone 5, as Apple wouldn’t be looking to hire all these ‘iPhone sales staff’ just to sell the iPhone 4.
If this is the case, then we can expect an official announcement from Apple over the next few weeks, if the iPhone 5 is expected to go on sale by the 15th of August, then Apple will probably put it up for pre-order for one or two weeks, so we expect to hear something by the end of the month.
