An analyst at Piper Jaffray Cos, Gene Munster, says that Apple's next generation iPhone or more popularly nicknamed iPhone 5 could come out by October 2012.

The new iPhone, which is expected to have a new body design, will be released at almost the same time as last year when the iPhone 4S was launched.
