Mole: iPhone 5 in testing now, on sale in September

Dual-core revamp, anyone?

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Last week's revelation that the iOS 5 developer-only beta release contains pointers to new iPhones and iPads was followed this weekend by the next Apple smartphone is currently in "final testing".

That, a "previously accurate Apple source" told website 9to5Mac, indicates a September iPhone release date.

Other sources made the same claim just recently.

Will it be the iPhone 5 or the iPhone 4-something, a tweak to match the upgrade from the 3G to the 3GS? The mole doesn't say beyond referring to the "next-generation iPhone".

That's what Apple would call a souped-up iPhone 4 in any case, but with the simultaneous release of iOS 5 - which Apple has publicly stated will ship this coming autumn - Apple will probably call the handset the iPhone 5 no matter what. ®
