iPhone 5 & iPhone 4S dropping mid-October, as Apple cancels holiday

Apple Store staff have been refused holiday requests for the second week of October, corroborating claims that its next-generation iPhone or iPhones will go on sale around the middle of next month.

According to Apple Insider, the Cupertino-based company’s retail army is being denied breakettes between 9th-12th October and 14th-15th of October. Apparently, for reasons that are unexplained, the 13th is A-OK.

The move is a sure sign that the tech giant is preparing for the surge in demand, round-the-block queues at its bijou outlets and boyband-style hysteria that greets the release of a new Apple smartphone.

Whether that week will see the release of a single handset, as is Apple’s wont, or two iPhones is what’s currently keeping the tech press occupied right now.

However, signs are certainly increasingly pointing to the latter, with insider testimonies suggesting we're looking at a major upgrade in the shape of the iPhone 5 as well as a cheaper model dubbed the iPhone 4S, which recycles parts from the current-generation handset.

Either way, it looks like we won’t have long to find out. Apple is now expected to unveil whatever it’s got up its sleeve on October 4th at a press call at its California campus.
