New iPhone 5 Gets Final Testing Treatments to Reveal in September: 3G FaceTime & Over-the-Air Updates?

By on June 13, 2011

Apple had informed to all tech junkies well before starting of its WWDC 2011 that it would only be a software specific event, and no hardware would be discussed at this particular episode. Apple did the same that it had earlier promised “ Come to see the Future of OS X, iOS” ; Apple only revealed its new iOS 5, Mac OS X Lion and iCloud softwares at WWDC 2011 without speaking even a word for its upcoming hardware, most prominent iPhone 5 (or iPhone 4S). As we have earlier informed you in our popular post “iPhone 5 Release date: Apple September Event Would Reveal iPhone 5” back in April, now 9to5mac just confirms our post heading by reporting that Apple has almost carried out the final testing treatments for its upcoming iPhone 5 and it should be launched in Apple’s September event.

A previously accurate Apple source has told 9to5Mac some interesting information regarding what 2011 holds for the iPhone and Apple’s popular FaceTime video chat service.

The next generation iPhone has reached the final testing stage (aka “AP” stage [Thanks, Chronic!]) and is now being carried around by high level Apple and carrier executives.

The site also reports that Apple and Verizon are trying their best to dig out the way for bringing 3G FaceTime calls and over-the-air updates in iOS 5 firmware.

Apple and Verizon have yet to strike a deal regarding FaceTime over 3G for the Verizon network. Keep in mind that 3G and 4G aren’t the same thing.

Apple and Verizon are still working out kinks regarding support for iOS 5′s over-the-air updates, which we broke the news about, so carrier support may or may not be delayed past fall 2011.

We think that Applers would feel them much lucky and extreme crazy if next generation iPhone 5 comes in September  with a latest iOS 5  equipped with most desired features of   FaceTime over 3G & over-the-air updates.
