According to TmoNews, T-Mobile is supposedly planning an employee blackout dates between September 20 and 22, the same time period in which Apple’s new iPhone models are rumored to hit store shelves. The report is in line with previous rumblings about a September 20 debut for Apple’s “iPhone 5C” and “iPhone 5S” handsets, both of which are expected to be announced on September 10.

The publication points out the blackout dates may be in relation to the other release of Samsung’s Galaxy Note III, as the Korean company is said to be announcing the device on September 4. The scenario seems to be unlikely as a new Note model would hardly require T-Mobile to bolster its in-store staff.

As of right now, Apple’s next-generation iPhone rumors are heating up ahead of the anticipated announcement, with supposed parts “leaks” popping up on the Web in the form of videos and pictures. We’ll have to see if the info is correct.
