    As I was walking out of the AT&T store today, the representative said, “see you on the 26th.”

    I asked him if there was a memo from AT&T that the launch date would indeed be the 26th of Sept.

    He replied that they have training sessions and blackout dates prompting that they are hopeful the new iphones will indeed launch on Tuesday, Sept. 26th

    You’re welcome.

    Don't believe this.

    1. Didn't come from Apple.
    2. When was the last time Apple launched an iPhone on a Tuesday?
    It's been Friday for years!

    I don't know about that. For example, If the iPhone Keynote is around the 5th or 6th of September, then figuratively the preordering should be on the 8th, perhaps with a launch on the 15th.

    Although, the caveat could be the iPhone might launch slightly later this year based off previous rumors. So, it's possible a later launch date could happen. But I'm leaning towards what my thoughts in my first paragraph.

    Blackout dates from Sunday, Sept 17 - Nov. 4th.

    Makes sense for Keynote Tuesday, Sept. 19th with release and launch date Sept. 26th.

    This isn't a verified source. We have no idea if this twitter bulletin is legitimate and Venya Geskin does not always report facts also. Again, could it be possible? Maybe. But I still have my doubts and I'm leaning towards the Keynote early September, with the launch around the 16th.

    They will not do a Tuesday release. It will be a Friday. The keynote will also not be the 19th. It will be the first or second week of September.

    The most likely scenario, in my opinion, is keynote September 6, launch September 22.

    No one expected Apple to launch iPads at WWDC, but they did. I would not be so quick to dismiss rumors. Apple can do whatever they want, they have no obligation to follow historical trends with regards to release dates.

    Sure it’s fun, but I guess at least try to be accurate to what Apple typically does..

    Guessing/speculating is fine.

    But you aren't doing that in your thread title and in your first post. You are presenting a date as if it's fact.

    Sure, they could switch it up - but with the iPhone 8 expected to be the company’s biggest device launch in history, there’s no way launch is on a Tuesday.

    I'm sure someone in an at&t shop would just volunteer information like this when they know they wouldn't be allowed to. That's assuming they knew in the first place.

    Understandable. However, The iPad and iPhone are different launches respectively. The iPad is expected approximately every 18 months for an update, which has no real definitive set date in comparison to the iPhone on an annual basis. The iPhone traditionally has followed suit in Mid September for the launch. I highly doubt an iPhone would launch on a Tuesday.

    I understand very clearly that it’s guessing - but guessing that the biggest product launch in history will be mid-week is a bad guess.

    I suppose I should get used to all the fictional facts that will be popping up on here until the keynote. If someone wants to share something that may or not be true, fine. But pointless to present a guess as a fact and expect everyone to thank you for it.

    announced on tuesday sept 12,
    pre-orders start midnight PDT friday sept 15,
    launch day friday sept 22.

    This is a very good assumption. This is what guessing good is.

    I think ramblapacifica's guess makes the most sense.

    2012: Sept. 12th (Wednesday)
    '13: Sept. 10th (Tuesday)
    '14: Sept. 9th (Tuesday)
    '15: Sept. 9th (Wednesday)
    '16: Sept. 7th (Wednesday)

    2017: Sept. 6th (Wednesday)
    Preorders September 8th
    Launch September 15th
    Potentially delayed launch until September 22nd for more mass production time. Limit one per customer to combat the biggest scalping product in history?

    I seriously don't get why everyone acts like that guy knows everything.
