Last week we reported that the iPhone 5 is expected to be released on the 14 December 2012 with the launch party happening on the 13 December. We haven’t heard any more news about these dates but this morning for some unknown reason Twitter was abuzz with news that the date was confirmed as the 14 December.

None of the tweets have links to any news articles but as far as we can confirm the leak was started by Ross, whom was retweeted by Gavin Mannion. This spark a number of retweets.

The next clue we had was from Marc Forrest who tweeted:

So, by the looks of things we should see the iPhone 5 released in South Africa on the 14th of December. Lets wait & see !
