As noted by TechCrunch on Tuesday, August 21, 2012, a trusted Verizon employee confirmed to them that they will be having an all-staff vacation blackout from September 21 to September 30, 2012; and that September 21 is likely to be the iPhone 5 release date.

“The next iPhone, whether it’s called the iPhone 5 or simply the new iPhone, will almost certainly be available in stores (with lines wrapping around the back of them) starting Friday, September 21.” TechCrunch‘s Jordan Crook wrote.

“If we travel back a bit and examine the historical timeline from Apple‘s announcement, to pre-order, to launch, the dates all seem to match up.” Crook added, noting that Apple announced the iPhone 4S on a October 4, 2012, which fell on Tuesday, and was made available in stores on October 14, Friday.

As being rumored earlier, there will be an Apple event this coming September 12, where the iPhone 5 (others say it will be simply called the new iPhone) will be announced, along with announcement of iPad mini and a revamped iPod nano.

As of this writing, Apple has not yet released any official statement on their new iPhone and its specs, but is being believed to have a 3.75″ display and will measure around 123.9 mm long; and that its Jack port was moved in the lower left corner of the device, which was at the upper left corner in the previous versions.
