It was reported earlier today that Apple was preparing to introduce the long awaited iPhone 5 together with the iPad mini, iPod Touch and iPod nano on September 12th, buyers can buy one starting September 21st.
The insider news first published by AllThingsD also suggests that the latest surge in the company’s early repayment for supply of components is to bring the next-generation iPhone at the September event. The Apple’s 10-Q filing, which is a prepayment for components from suppliers located in Asia rose to $1.15 billion in the last quarter. And this huge surge in activity clearly indicates that Apple is feeling the Galaxy S3 pressure and lower than expected sales of iPhones in the last quarter.

The news will affect sales of both Samsung Galaxy S3 as well as iPhone 4S as buyers will wait for iPhone 5 before deciding on the best smartphone 2012.
