According to 9to5Mac, Apple will launch the iPhone 5 in September. The site references "a previously accurate Apple source" as saying that the next-generation Apple iPhone will launch in three months and will include speech-recognition capabilities from Nuance, but won't include some of the features that have been rumoured.

For instance, the SDK for iOS 5 suggests that the camera will remain the same 5Mp device as on the Apple iPhone 4.

According to 9to5Mac, the iPhone 5 is in final testing. The source is quoted as saying the new smartphone handset is "being carried around by high-level Apple and carrier executives".

The 9to5Mac source's quote in full:

"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.

"Although this has been assumed since the no-iPhone-at-WWDC-rumors broke, the current plan is for a September launch for the next-generation iPhone.

"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. < Don’t read into that too much. Or maybe do.

"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."
