Last week we reported an iPhone 5 release in the second week of September. A cheeky phone network employee has pretty much confirmed it today. An anonymous email was sent from an AT&T employee who said holiday at the end of September has been banned for all staff, pointing towards a US release in the last two weeks in September. The last time a blackout of this kind happened was apparently before the Verizon iPhone launch in February. As always with Apple rumours, we’re taking it all with a large pinch of salt – but have booked someone to camp outside Apple's Regent Street store in late September just in case.
