Don’t expect prototypes of the iPhone 5 to wind up in some Cupertino watering hole any time this spring.

MacRumors is “reporting” that the iPhone 5 won’t be launched in June or July – well after Apple (AAPL) hosts the 2011 Worldwide Developer’s Conference last month. This information, which should be taken with an ocean salt, arrive to MacRumors via at AT&T (T) customer rep who contacted the site.

Of course, the one thing we know about Apple is to expect the unexpected. While conventional wisdom says the iPhone 5 is at least three or four months away, many speculators have lost the shirts expecting Apple to adhere to conventional wisdom.

Stay tuned…
