Did a carrier just leak the exact iPhone 6 launch date?
It’s never likely that Apple will reveal its most prized secrets, and then again, with the amount of buzz that Apple’s competition is making lately, it’s also logical that the Cupertino gang needs to keep some hype behind its own product. We’ve seen a ton of leaks of the iPhone 6 lately, though nothing points to a launch any time soon, and if you were wondering if the launch would somehow happen at WWDC 2014 next week, think again.
Reports have it that the Deutsche Telekom call center has been contacting customers lately and telling them the exact launch date of the iPhone 6, with the idea of getting these customers to commit to a contract renewal. We haven’t been able to confirm, but the report points to a possible launch on September 19th, which could mean that the event could happen 10 days earlier. It could also be that the event will happen on September 19th, with a possible launch 10 days later.
Historically this is quite close to previous launch dates of the last iPhone models. The iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c were launched on September 20, 2013, while the iPhone 5 did so on September 21, 2012, and the iPhone 4s on October 14, 2011. Obviously the iPhone 6 could launch at two separate dates, given the rumors mention two separate phones, but time will tell.
