RUMOR: Apple Will Launch iPhone 5 in October, Not September
Posted on August 1, 2011 by eli courey
All Things D has heard from reliable sources that Apple will launch the iPhone 5 in October. It was previously rumored that the iPhone 5 would launch sometime in September.
Sources with knowledge of the situation say reports claiming AT&T has blacked out employee vacations during the last two weeks of September in preparation for the retail debut of the next iPhone are misinformed. Instead, it’s going to be an October surprise — the month in which Apple will be launching its next generation iPhone.
All Things D is well connected with sources familiar with Apple products, and I would consider it a very reliable source.
