A trusted Verizon employee has just confirmed to TechCrunch that the carrier is having an all-staff vacation blackout from the dates of Friday, September 21 to September 30. You know what that means, right?
Apple is said to be unveiling their next generation device on September 12th. Last year, the iPhone 4S was announced on October 4th, went up for pre-order on Friday, October 7th, and was launched in stores a week later on Friday October 14th.
This falls in line nicely with TechCrunch's timeline for the iPhone 5:
● Expected announcement: Tuesday, September 12
● Expected pre-order date: Tuesday, September 12
● Launch date, as confirmed by our trusted source: Friday, September 21
