iPhone 6 launch on October 14th, iWatch unveiled the same month?

“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.”

      1. There’s an old adage in the advertising business; #1 never talks about #2.

        This is why when you see an Samsung ad slamming the iPhone, you *know* that even Samsung acknowledges that they are #2 in that market.

  1. Mid-October seems to be a make or break release date for the Holiday season quarter. Anything that’s going to be released during this period will have to be announced between mid-September and mid-October or doubtful it’s happening this year.

  2. iWatch this and iWatch that … Damn! I just want Apple to release the thing so everybody will shut up about it. By itself it will have negligible effect on Apple’s bottom line. Yes, IF Apple does it, it will finally get done right, but seriously, enough is enough … and then some … and then a lot more … and more beyond that.
