Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam indicates via an interview on CNBC that he feels the next iPhone will launch in the Fall.
We had assumed that we would see an iPhone early in the summertime as it’s been usually, and that’s going to be a little bit later in the year now.
From a financial conference call today:
We are probably what I would view as maybe a quarter behind what we had talked about in January, primarily because we expected an iPhone 5 refresh sometime this summer.
We don’t know when the next one is going to come out. You will have to ask Apple that, but we expect that probably sometime in the fall, and I think you will see a significant jump there when we get to that point.
