iPhone 5 reportedly enters production

Rumours over minutae of upcoming handset hit fever pitch

Sometimes reliable Japanese site Macotakara is reporting that the iPhone 5 has now entered production.

According to the site's sources, both Foxconn and Pegatron factories have begun assembly on the to-be-announced handset.

However, they also note that the handsets aren't being packaged as Apple is hanging fire on installing the iOS 5 software, allegedly because it "isn't ready" yet.

Don't stop me now

Macotakara's pontificates that this comencement of assembly means an early October launch for the long-awaited handset which ties in with the general gist of the other rumours floating around, suggesting a late September/early October reveal followed by a late October release date.

While Apple has seemingly managed to lose an iPhone 5 in a bar, no enterprising barfly has yet sold it to Gizmodo so we can't confirm any specs 100 per cent.

However, it's likely that the iPhone 5 will come complete with a faster A5 dual-core processor, a larger 3.7-inch screen and a better camera than the iPhone 4.

As for the iPhone 5 entering production? We can believe it. Now we're off to hit refresh on our emails in the hope that an invite to Apple's media event will have materialised.
