New iPhone out September 21

The iPhone 5, or simply the new iPhone, is expected to be released a month from now, specifically September 21, based on Verizon’s vacation blackout announcement.

Tech blog TechCrunch says a “trusted Verizon employee” confirmed that the telco is set for a “vacation blackout” towards the end of next month.

This means Verizon employees/staff cannot and will not be allowed to go on leave for a vacation from September 21 to September 30, according to the blog post.

This revelation backs up an earlier rumor that the new iPhone will be announced and probably shipping to stores in the United states on that day.
