Confirming end-of-September vacation blackout dates for Verizon has prompted Techcrunch to deduce that the iPhone 5 will make its debut on Friday, September 21. The iPhone 5 is expected to be announced by Apple at an event on September 12. Writes Jordan Crook at TC:
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?
The next iPhone, whether it's called the iPhone 5 or simply the new iPhone, will almost certainly be available in stores (with lines wrapping around the back of them) starting Friday, September 21.
