Apple just told everyone not to buy iPhone for two months

Why? Because they appear to be tipping off a redesign of a bigger-screen phone for announcement in mid-September.

AFTER RENE RITCHIE at iMore broke the news that Apple was planning an event to announce the next iPhone for September 12, other news outlets confirmed his report citing a source familiar with the matter.

It sure seems like that “source” is either Apple PR, or someone at Apple authorised to confirm the date.

As a result, Apple has tacitly told the world to stop buying iPhones (unless it’s an absolute must-buy purchase) until the middle of September.

What is coming in September? We believe a redesigned phone that will have a bigger screen and a high speed, 4G LTE wireless connection. In addition, the price of the iPhone 4S will probably fall (well, in the US anyway). The iPhone 3GS, meanwhile, might get even cheaper unlocked, off contract.

So, if you can hold off, don’t buy an iPhone for a few weeks.
