    I actually happened to go up to the AT&T store today just to check out when my next upgrade is, just to make sure I have one saved for the next iPhone. Well, the guy told me my next upgrade was in November and jokingly I said " Hopefully the iPhone comes out around then or they push up the upgrades like last time.. " Well, he then says " Oh, we've been told that it's going to be released September 6th ". The worker next to him said the same thing & sounded very sure of it. Then another worker started talking with us & he too said that's what he's heard. I asked if it was official and they said no but they're pretty sure from what they've been informed. I asked when it would be announced & they said very soon or around a month before the release. I'm siked.

    Edit: I'm not saying they're completely right about all of this, I'm just letting you guys know what they said.

    You've posted the exact same thing in another thread. Please do not create duplicate threads.

    I actually posted a response to another persons thread, then realized it was worthy of it's own thread.

    I'm sorry for trying to help one man by answering his question & spreading the news to many.

    This is not news, it's speculation.

    Also we have a 100+ Iphone 5 threads of which nobody knows when, why how what or where. I realize this is a rumor site. but there is no news that can be covered in another thread that hasn't already been done!

    Do yourself a favor and never believe anything a phone store employee tells you, especially about unreleased Apple products.

    My aunt is a manager for Verizon, and she knows just as much about future cell phone release dates as a brick wall does. Just to put that into perspective for you

    My apologies, " siked " is slang spelling used a lot around here.

    Also, to everyone.

    I realize this isn't official, I never said it was. Nor was I saying it's what I believe. I simply wanted to share what the AT&T people told me because it surprised me that they ' thought ' or ' knew ' the release date.

    Considering no "event" has been announced yet, I would speculate that Steve himself might not even know the exact release date of the next gen iPhone. Either way, I don't know, you don't know, and ATT store reps don't know.

    I believe you that they said it. But that doesn't mean anything. Before every launch we have a ton of threads saying how a AT&T/Verizon/Sprint/Best Buy/Apple Store employee or something else said the product will be released on a certain date, and what we have established is that retail employees know nothing about launches until they happen.

    Is the OP really getting attacked for posting a rumor on a forum called MacRumors? The hell's even the point of posting anymore?

    No, we are just pointing out that this rumor like the many other similar rumors that come around every time is not true. And if the iPhone happens to come out on that date then it is just dumb luck as we've seen that people at retail stores don't know any more than we do about product releases.

    Sad that there's almost an entire page of attacks. Lot of people should just stay away from the forums if that's all they're going to contribute.

    Leave the OP alone, he was only posting a speculation, hell in the end he could be right. Besides, the website IS macrumors.

    I like reading the FAQs/Rules

    How do I start a new thread?
