iPhone 5 release date prepared for September launch by AT&T

A source from inside AT&T has told BGR that is preparing to have the next iPhone in stores in the third or fourth week of September.

Another AT&T insider told the site that the company had to reschedule a “huge” training event for regional employees that was once set for the first week in October because of a conflict.

The conflict is a “huge announcement” which many speculate is the release of Apple’s next iPhone.

AT&T is putting an “all hands on deck” order for the third and fourth weeks of September in order to make sure there is enough staff to deal with the iPhone 5 launch.

Previous reports have stated that the handset is set for a September 21 launch.
