According to 9to5Mac, the German carrier sent out a message to its subscribers today announcing that the new iPhone is coming in September.
Here’s a poorly translated version of the image above:
“In September, it’s finally time for a new generation of smartphone to go on sale. mobilcom-debitel allows you to find free e-mail about everything worth knowing about iPhone.”
Now just because one carrier decided to put their neck out and jump on board with the rumored date, doesn’t mean this is a legitimate offering. The new iPhone will be released whenever the heck Apple wants to release it. But I’m even growing confident of a September 21 launch date.
Apple really doesn’t give carriers any intel regarding product launches, so I highly doubt that’s the case here. They may be putting a lot on the line siding with rumors, but I think they’re more than likely going to be correct.
