Do you remember all the way back to last week when a Foxconn HR/parking lot attendant told a Japanese news crew that the iPhone was coming in June?

Not so, says another un-named HR representative, reports Kokatu.

South Korea’s Maeil Business Newspaper begs to differ. According to a recently published article, the paper asked the head of human resources at Foxconn’s Taiyuan factory about the iPhone 5 release date. The human resources head apparently told the paper, “We just got the order. It [the release] will be around October.”
