Stéphane Richard, CEO of Orange, has made comments suggesting that Apple will launch the iPhone 5 on October 15. Hardmac reports that Richard was being interviewed by a French TV business channel when he said that he had received information on the iPhone 5 and its planned release date, which he claimed was October 15. While it remains to be seen whether Richard was referring to the France-specific or worldwide release, the date—a Saturday—does track with prior reports of a mid-October launch for the device.
