    Hi guys,

    I noticed that in previous years after a certain day/time during iPhone launch week, numerous sites would post their iPhone reviews 2-3days prior to launch day. Do you guys know like the actual time this occurs? I'm guessing there is some sort of agreement between review sites and Apple on when these can be released?

    There is an embargo on the reviewers, should expire Wednesday at the latest.

    I read on twitter from a reviewer that it is the 17th. Can't remember offhand how it was though.

    Makes sense that the NDA will be lifted when iOS 8 releases. Looking forward to reading the reviews a couple days before I receive my 6+

    Just looked at the iPhone 5s reviews, most were published on September 17th, a Tuesday.

    Reviewers don't have theirs. They will have to wait until Friday. Friday you will see tons of reviews, the first coming from Australia.

    Hm, it seems that The Verge put their reviews on the 5 and 5s the day they were released.

    Maybe we will have to wait until Friday then.

    That's not true at all. The reviews are always out at least a couple days before the release date, especially the ones from Mossberg, Pogue, etc.

    Anything coming out before next week will just be the usual shills happy to rep anything for web hits and curry favour with Apple.

    Certain publications, individuals and sites will have units this week or possibly late last week for a few days of use. Expect to see reviews arrive Wednesday or Thursday, a predetermined day Apple will have told reviewers who were given early access units to release their review. It will be before Friday.

    Really? Not that hard to Google. I used Mossberg as an example but plenty of others posted on the same dates....

    Review posted for 5S on 9/18, phone came out 9/20

    Review posted for 5 on 9/18, phone came out 9/21

    Kinda proved yourself wrong though. Mossberg's article was posted on the 18th and the phone came out 2 days later.

    Click this review roundup of 5s and 5c, links a lot of reviews from last year dated September 17th. Three days before launch.

    Wrong...

    The Verge waited lasted year, with some bogus claim that other reviews were rushed.
