Most rumors have suggested Apple will release the next iPhone around September, however, the Verizon CFO Fran Shammo hinted that the next iPhone may be released in Q4 2012 during a conference call to discuss its Q2 2012 performance, reports The Verge.
When asked what might have held customers back from upgrading their devices in Q2, Shammo said that "of course there's always that, uh, rumor mill out there with a new phone coming out there in the fourth quarter, so people may be waiting." While there's a chance that he was referring to the next Nexus phone, this felt more like a thinly-veiled reference to the oft-rumored "new iPhone."
Q4, can you wait, guys!!!
