Hey Apple, Is T-Mobile Dropping New iPhone Hints?
Does this internal T-Mobile (NYSE:TMUS) document confirm Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) upcoming iPhone launch date? According to TmoNews, T-Mobile has planned employee blackout dates for September 20 through September 22, reports Apple Insider. TmoNews is an unofficial source of T-Mobile news and rumors.
Earlier this month, AllThingsD cited insider sources that stated Apple would unveil its new iPhones at a September 10 media event. However, the next-generation iPhones aren’t expected to be available for purchase until approximately 10 days later.
This has led many commentators to speculate that T-Mobile’s scheduled employee blackout dates are related to the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C debuts. However, TmoNews points out that Samsung’s (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy Note III is expected to be announced on September 4, so these blackout dates may also be related to that device’s debut.
