AppleInsider reported that Apple manufacturers Foxconn and Pegatron have begun producing the hardware for Apple’s next-generation iPhone in preparation for the finalized version of iOS 5, which is rumored to arrive in time for an early October launch in the U.S. and a late October launch in Asia.

Japanese Mac site Macotakara cites a “Chinese source” as saying that the two OEM manufacturers have started assembling Apple’s so-called iPhone 5, with Foxconn bearing 85 percent of the load and Pegatron taking on a 15 percent share.

However, as of now the devices are reportedly being stocked without packaging because Apple is not ready to install iOS 5 on them. If you’ve been following news of the iOS 5 beta releases to developers (currently up to beta 7), it looks like the software isn’t quite ready yet – there are still plenty of bugs and issues to be addressed.

The report inferred from its source that the iPhone 5 will be ready to launch by early October and late October or early November in Asia. It is evident that iPhone 5 hysteria has gripped the media in the weeks leading up to the next handset, which is rumored to come with an A5 processor, 8 MP rear camera and possibly a sleek new design.
