Once the December holidays are over, customers will be thinking about new products from Apple. Now that Macworld Expo is off of Apple’s calendar, updates can come whenever they’re deemed ready.
The iPhone 3G was released on July 11th, 2008 and the 3GS began shipping a year later on June 19th, 2009. Additionally, many customers have contracts that expire in July. In a few weeks, we’ll be six months away, so it’s time to begin lining up production.
