It’s close to confirm that the sixth generation iPhone will launch in the month of September. We have heard multiple reports claiming that Apple will announce it’s iPhone 5 or the new iPhone on September 12. Now TechCrunch reports that it has heard from a ‘trusted’ Verizon employee that the carrier will be having a vacation blackout for all of it’s staff from Friday, September 21 to the end of the month. What makes this news significant is that carriers usually have such vacation blackouts when they launching something major, in this case a new iPhone.
