As Apple (AAPL +2.5%) surges above $425, a French site leaks an apparent sales doc for Japanese carrier KDDI that states iPhone 5S pre-sales will start on June 20 (shortly after the WWDC conference) ahead of a July launch. The doc also claims the 5S will have a 13MP camera and fingerprint reader. It's possible the launch info is dated - there have been multiple reports the 5S launch has been pushed back to Aug./Sep. from July. Also: KGI Securities, which has a pretty good track record, reports new MacBook Pro/Air models will arrive at WWDC, and that display yield issues will likely push back retina iPad Mini mass-production to October.

    Why would sales staff need to know months ahead of time? And who would expect it to stay a secret? I don't read kanji, but seems fake. Still wouldn't be surprised by a summer launch though. Just not liking this as evidence.

    These "will happen later this year" rumours are getting pretty tiring. But at least the news flow is turning more bullish.

    Rumors or whatever,it really doesn't matter. AAPL is a terrific company and shares will rise to 500 and more this year and more next year and shorters will have to run for cover
