“Apple retail employees are a great resource for advice on picking your Macs and iOS devices, but info on Apple’s secret launch plans for its biggest product launches of the year, not so much,” Ben Lovejoy reports for 9to5Mac. “The information was supposedly relayed during what Apple calls an ‘all hands meeting’ at one of Apple’s stores. MacRumors cites an Apple retail employee for what would seem like a highly unlikely story of the iPhone 6 launching on October 14th.”
“The story seems exceedingly unlikely for two reasons (besides the questionable nature of the source having access to launch details),” Lovejoy reports. “First, Apple traditionally launches new iPhones on a Friday, with first weekend sales an important early guide to the popularity of a new model. A Tuesday launch would not provide comparable data. Second, Apple usually announces new iPhones around ten days before they go on sale, yet the same source is claiming that Apple will announce the phone in mid-September, a full month before it goes on sale.”
