Report: New iPhone already here; first shipments happened in March


The second-generation iPhone may already be here in “key markets,” according to Forbes. The business publication says Apple has been receiving shipments of a “mysterious new product” since March, citing sources in the shipping industry and leaning heavily on previous analyst assumptions (what companies are supplying what internal parts, etc.). Why, then, no credible photos of the device have appeared, especially given the large-scale manufacturing in China that’s been going on, is somewhat curious.

The juicy part: Forbes says shipments of the new iPhone first arrived at the Port of Oakland in California in mid-March, where they were unloaded and taken to a distribution center a few miles south. Shipments to New York started on May 17, apparently onboard a Panamanian boat.

Bottom line: the new iPhone is already here in the U.S., probably, most likely to be announced on June 9 at the WWDC. Just a few more days.
