Spills beans on TV.

Apple’s long awaited iPhone 5 should be coming this June, according to a Foxconn recruiter speaking on a TV show last night. Yep the bright lights of TV are just too much for some people and one Foxconn employee has cracked under them on World Business Showcast.

The interviewer asked about employee numbers at the manufacturing plant for future Apple products and was answered, “We're looking for 18,000 employees…for the fifth-generation phone," to which the interviewer responded, “Is that because demand is high for the 'iPhone 5?” And the money shot came with the answer, “That's right. It will come out in June."

So we all know the fifth-generation iPhone is the 4S, but the question was clearly iPhone 5, which is the sixth-generation mobile from Apple. It also fits perfectly with Apple’s usual release schedule for phones.

Other rumours suggest a September release, but this could still fit as June may merely be the announcement time. Either way we can’t wait for Apple’s iPhone 5 with its rumoured 5in Retina Display, revolutionary virtual buttons, and aqua friendly body.
