T-Mobile Blocking Employee Vacations For Sept. 20, New iPhones Incoming?
T-Mobile has blacked out employee vacations in the United States for Sept. 20, 2013, indicating that Apple's next-generation iPhone handset could be set to launch in the coming weeks. The information comes from TMoNews, who explains that T-Mobile is blacking out employee vacations between Sept. 20-22, as shown in the below chart. Though a Samsung Galaxy Note III launch could be the reason for T-Mobile's move, TMoNews rightly argues that an iPhone launch is more likely.

Given that an iPhone related event is said to be set for Sept. 10, the Sept. 20-22 date detailed in TMoNews's report makes sense. We'll keep you updated with further information as we receive it.
