Apple iPhone 5 official release date has been a hotly debated topic in recent past. According to a latest analyst report, Apple will begin production of next-generation iPhone later this summer, which is slightly ahead of a projected late third quarter launch, AppleInsider reported.


Analyst Katy Huberty issued a note to clients on Sunday after meetings in Taiwan last week. Katy Huberty wrote “Apple’s next iPhone will begin production in mid to late August and ramp aggressively”. She predicts a late Q3 release for next iPhone. Because upcoming iPhone 5 will be released later than usual launch, Analyst Huberty shifted 2 million units of iPhone from Q3 estimates to Q4, though full year estimate of 72 million iPhone units remain unchanged. Huberty noted that if next-generation iPhone will come out in early September, production would “drive upside” to Morgan Stanley’s lowered estimates.

According to Huberty, Apple might be thinking about releasing lower priced Apple iPhone and an Apple-branded television. She noted that Apple is expecting a large iPhone unit increase in 2012 “on the back of new products and potentially lower price points.” Morgan Stanley analyst Huberty believes cheaper iPhone models would help Apple to make gains in emerging and prepaid mobile markets.
