    Default AT&T Reportedly Gearing Up For September iPhone 5 Launch


    It's almost go-time.

    That's the latest report from sources close to AT&T who say that the long-awaited iPhone 5 release is, indeed, taking place in mid-September, effectively corroborating months of speculation about the time-frame for the 5th generation device's market debut.

    Sources tell BGR this morning that "AT&T has begun informing employees across the company, and those who work in retail locations, to finish any sort of employee training as soon as possible." Rumors of a later-than-usual iPhone refresh have persisted since spring when overseas parts suppliers began confirming that production hadn't yet been put in motion on the next generation iPhone.

    In recent weeks, MMi reported what BRG also picked up on today - news that Apple is said to be gearing up for significant retail store employee hiring by early August, which would give the company adequate time to train and prepare the newbies for the consumer feeding frenzy that habitually accompanies a new iDevice refresh.

    What remains to be seen, however, is when Apple will formally introduce the iPhone 5. It isn't yet clear if Apple will unveil the product in August, followed by a September release, or if the announcement will come in conjunction with the release in September.

    So this means they'll be hitting the switch to rollout the new upgrades to handle more capacity... Wait, that'll be unnecessary as they don't offer unlimited data anymore! Nobody would be foolish enough to by a device they can't use to it's full extent.

    Interesting.

    We all know about how Apple feels about leakers in the US- their opsec is legendary;
    but I haven't really heard as much about the situation with regards Foxconn and the rest of the supply chain in CN. I wonder how much an employee could get away with revealing, provided they used some caution.

    This in no way corroborates ceije's friend's story, but could be food for thought.
