Apple hasn't said when it will release the next version of the iPhone, but former Vice President and current Apple Inc. board member Al Gore believes "new iPhones" will be here in October.

Gore spoke Wednesday at the Discovery Invest Leadership Summit in Johannesburg, South Africa. Toby Shapshak, a summit attendee and the editor of Stuff Magazine's South African edition, told The Associated Press that, when speaking about computing's exponential growth, Gore said, "Not to mention the new iPhones coming out next month. That was a plug."

Gore's comments, which Shapshak said he recorded on his iPhone, were reported earlier by TheNextWeb. If Gore is right, that could indicate Apple will introduce more than one model.

An Apple spokesman declined to comment.

A new iPhone is expected this fall.
