Just days after it was reported that Apple would be blacking out employee vacation requests for October 9th-15th, BGR reports that AT&T and Sprint also issued out blackouts on retail employee vacations for the first two weeks of October.
With reports circling that Apple’s next iPhone is due to launch on October 14th, BGR has received new information from a trusted AT&T source that seems to confirm a mid-October launch. AT&T has started to block all employee vacation requests for the first two weeks of October in order to have “all hands on deck.” Our source clarified that the dates are the first two works weeks starting on Monday, October 3rd and ending on Friday, October 14th.
Of course, it is possible that the companies will extend their blackouts beyond the reported date, as it is likely that heavy traffic in the period following the iPhone release will overload stores for days or even weeks.
BGR also reports that its sources have found out that AT&T has added six new placeholder listings for “new products” on its internal database. Of course, not all of those listings may be for new iPhones, but it’s speculated that they are referring to black and white versions of three different iPhones, with two of them being different capacities for the iPhone 4S or 5 and a single, lower-capacity iPhone 4/4S.
