According to a recent poll conducted by the Latinos Post, people who plan to purchase Apple's latest smartphone iteration or "iPhone 5" are mostly consumers who already own an iPhone.
The unscientific poll asked online users to vote on which device they currently possess and would still be getting the iPhone 5.

iPhone 5 Release Date September 12
If Apple does indeed unveil the iPhone 5 this upcoming Wednesday, it doesn't necessarily mean people will be able to purchase it right away - a common practice of companies today.
The unveiling certainly means that people can start preparing themselves to upgrade their iPhone 4s, 4Ss and 3GSs to a new version and probably start preparing their wallets as well.
Ordering or purchasing the iPhone 5 as well as upgrading to the iOS 6 (which is expected to be unveiled on September 12 as well) will most likely start by September 21 according to several sources.
Also, according to Value Walk, a new line of iPods which includes the iPod Touch, iPod Nano and iPod Shuffle will make an initial appearance as well during the same event.
The event starts at 10:00 a.m. and registration will begin an hour earlier.
The venue that will be hosting the event is Yerba Buena Center for the Arts which is located on Howard Street in San Francisco, CA.
