Let the frenzy begin -- the next generation of iPhone will reportedly hit store shelves in September.

Reuters reports that according to "three people familiar with the matter," the iPhone 5 will begin production in July and be shipped out in September.

Reuters writes:

The new smartphone will have a faster processor but will look largely similar to the current iPhone 4, one of the people said. They declined to be identified because the plans were not yet public.

AppleInsider reported earlier this week that the iPhone 5 would be more an iPhone 4GS rather than a whole new generation of handset. Looking even further into Apple's future, it said an iPhone 6 would be released in 2012.

The web site Hardware reports that official details are expected June 6-10, at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference.
