AT&T rep confirms no summer launch for next iPhone?

Apple has told AT&T that there will not be a June/July launch of a new iPhone this year, according to a new report. Citing a reader submission, Mac Rumors reports that an AT&T representative stated as fact that “Apple has informed us that they do not plan to release the iPhone in the June to July timeframe, though there will be a newer version in the future.” The representative continued, “unfortunately, we have not been given a release time for the new phone. We will release this information on our website when it is available to us.” As noted in the report, it is rare that such an employee would be provided this level of information ahead of an official announcement; however, the matter-of-fact wording is interesting. A recent report suggested that Apple plans to ship the next version of the iPhone in September, with production starting in July or August.

Some guy who works at AT&T?  Not likely.

Maybe he’ll get lucky and be right, but it won’t be because of some inside knowledge he has.
