The wait appears to be coming to an end as we now appear to be getting (unofficial) confirmed dates for the release of the iPhone 5.
Mark your calendar (well, albeit unofficially) – Friday, September 21, 2012.
TechCrunch reports that, from a tip by a trusted Verizon employee, that the carrier is having an all-staff vacation blackout from 9/21 to 9/30. Vacation blackouts around a major product launch usually means…well just that – ‘something’ is due to make a major appearance and this time, we’re suspecting it’s the iPhone 5.
Judging by the 9/21 as well as tips from a number a sources, according to iMore, Apple is planning on a special event on Wednesday, September 12, 2012.
