According to a new report from TmoNews, T-Mobile is planning to set September 20th through 22nd as employee blackout dates, meaning said employees will be unable to take vacation time during this period. This would, of course, corroborate previous rumors suggesting that this is right around the same time that Apple intends to launch its latest iPhone.
MacRumors notes that it has indeed heard that this time period will likely consist of blackout dates for T-Mobile employees, but the publication has also heard conflicting reports about other carriers such as AT&T and Verizon. These employees are supposedly reporting a blackout period sometime in October.
Last year, Apple launched the iPhone 5 at a media event on September 12. The phone later was publicly released on September 21st. That makes this rumor seem just that much more likely, but we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
