Posted on Jun 28 2012 - 3:30pm by Editorial Staff

We heard lots of rumors surrounding the Apple’s latest instalment of iPhone: the iPhone 5 except the October launch date, today JP Morgan analyst Mark Moskowitz wrote in an investor note, stating that the iPhone 5 will be the leading smartphone in 2013. Moskowitz said, the phone will debut in September with production will surfaces throughout the fourth quarter.

The phone will make big waves in 2013. “We think that a combination of revolutionary hardware enhancements and software-driven services (i.e., Passbook, Maps, FaceTime over cellular) stand to reaffirm the iPhone as the leading smartphone in 2013,” Moskowitz wrote in an investors note. He added, “Overall, our expectation of stronger iPhone unit sales and the related mix benefits partially counters our lower growth assumptions for the iPad and Mac businesses.”
