The still-unannounced iPhone 5 will reportedly be unveiled during a special event scheduled on September 12 and will enter the market by September 21. This was revealed recently through iMore citing sources that reportedly gave accurate information in the past.

In addition to the iPhone 5, the iPad Mini and the next-generation iPod Touch will also be released in the middle of September although no specific release dates were indicated. Earlier reports had hinted at a possible October debut of the iPad Mini and the iPhone 5.

The next-generation iPhone will supposedly feature a four-inch screen display, modified dock connector, LTE connectivity, bigger battery, and a nano-SIM. The report followed an earlier report from App4Phone, a French website, which hinted at a September 21 release of the upcoming iPhone 5.

This is the latest report on the upcoming model of the iPhone, which has been the subject of numerous speculations on its possible features and release date even as Apple has yet to officially confirm the existence of the device. A recently leaked image showed an assembled iPhone 5 together with the curved back, speaker, display screen, and the newly-repositioned headphone jack.

If the iPhone 5 will be released into the market by September, the stock price of Apple may increase according to Brian White, an analyst from Topeka Capital Markets. According to White, the stock price of Apple may go up to $1,111 in the coming year if the company will release the iPhone 5 and other new devices before the end of the year.

The supposed release schedule of the iPhone 5 is similar to the release schedule of the iPhone 4S last year, which became available in the market ten days after it was unveiled last October. Despite not being officially announced by Apple, a survey conducted by ChangeWave Research showed a strong demand for the still-to-be-revealed device.

Although the release schedule of the iPhone 5 remains unofficial, it is still expected to do well in the market that has seen a deluge of Android-powered devices led by the Galaxy S3 of Samsung.
