An AT&T vice president has confirmed to several employees that Apple plans to launch the iPhone 5 in early October, according to a new report. Citing a high-level AT&T source, Boy Genius Report claims that the executive also told a group of managers that things were going to get “really, really busy in the next 35-50 days, so prepare your teams accordingly.” While the exact announcement and release timeframe for the iPhone 5 is still up for debate, recent reports indicate that a September announcement and October launch seems likely for the next-generation handset.
