iPhone 5 release date hinted by rumoured AT&T vacation blackout

Another US network has reportedly suspended employee holidays in anticipation of the imminent launch of the sixth-generation iPhone.

Citing an insider source, TechCrunch reports that AT&T has called on a company-wide vacation blackout between September 21st and September 30th – just like rival carrier Verizon allegedly did last week.

BGR previously revealed that AT&T cleared its schedule from the third or fourth week of September to mid-October to prepare for a ‘huge announcement’.

Additionally, the source also claims employees are receiving training for an ‘iconic release,’ which we can only assume is the iPhone 5.

Apple is widely expected to announce the new iPhone on September 12th. Preorders are expected to start the same day, with retail availability pegged on September 21st.

Features mooted to be on board the iGiant’s latest tilt at a smartphone include a larger, four-inch display, a quad-core processor and an improved eight-megapixel camera.

It’s also rumoured to be taller and slimmer than its predecessor and bring 4G and NFC support to an iPhone for the first time.
