Apple plans to launch its next-generation iPhone a month later than recent reports have indicated, based on a new report. Citing sources with knowledge of the situation, AllThingsD reports that Apple will launch its next-generation iPhone in October, and that reports of an AT&T employee vacation black out for the last two weeks in September are “misinformed.” “I don’t know why AT&T’s calling for all hands on deck those weeks, but it’s not for an iPhone launch,” said a source familiar with Apple’s plans. The report goes on to state that while one source simply said the device would launch in October, without providing any further details, other sources said the launch would take place later in the month.
