AT&T Vacation Blackout Further Affirms Next iPhone’s September 21 Launch Date

We’ve received yet another bit of evidence confirming the next iPhone’s September 21 launch. According to an AT&T sales rep, AT&T staff has been given a vacation blackout from September 21 to September 30, just like Verizon employees. Our source also mentioned that blue carrier employees are undergoing training for an “iconic release.”

Sounds like the next-gen iPhone to me.

BGR earlier reported that AT&T employees were given a vacation blackout in the third or fourth week of September through early October.

We then confirmed that Verizon’s vacation blackout begins September 21, firming up the notion that Apple would release the iPhone that Friday, a week and a half after the phone’s debut, expected September 12.

This information essentially seals the deal save for an official word from Apple. So along with International Peace Day, World Gratitude Day, and Mini Golf Day, mark down September 21 in your calendar. It’ll be a big day.

Update: An AT&T spokesperson has reached out to say that there is no vacation blackout scheduled for this time.
