Verizon is reportedly blocking employee vacations between September 18th-22nd, reports 9to5Mac. Those dates coincide with the rumored September 20th release date for the iPhone 5S.

As Apple’s September 10th iPhone unveiling approaches, we’ve heard that Verizon Wireless is blocking its retail employees from requesting vacations between Wednesday, September 18th and Sunday, September 22nd. Based on Apple historically shipping new versions of the iPhone about a week and half following the unveiling, it would make sense for the new iPhones to arrive for customers on Friday, September 20th.

Verizon is also said to be in short supply of the 32GB and 64GB iPhone 5 models. Inventory shortages are to be expected ahead of new generation of devices. Walmart today dropped the price of the iPhone 5 to $98 with contract.

Notably, T-Mobile has also blacked out vacation dates for their employees from September 20th and 22nd.

As we've mentioned numerous times, Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C on September 10th.
