We’ve also heard that Apple is increasing the staffing in its Retail Stores in the U.S. and UK around this time.
Now BGR reports that according to their sources, AT&T – one of Apple’s iPhone partners in the U.S. is preparing for an early to mid September launch of the next generation iPhone.
BGR has exclusively learned that AT&T has begun communicating launch plans internally for Apple’s next-generation iPhone 5 handset. We have been told that AT&T has begun informing employees across the company, and those who work in retail locations, to finish any sort of employee training as soon as possible. AT&T is asking managers to finish training in order to have employees available for the influx of foot traffic expected in September, a proven source has shared with us.
Apple’s iPhone 5 is expected to come pre-installed with iOS 5 – their next generation mobile operating system and based on the open issues in the current iOS 5 beta, an ETA of early or mid September seems more likely than mid-August launch as some reports have suggested.
We can’t wait to get our hands on the new iPhone. What about you?
