New iPhone 4G / HD launch date 21st June?
iPhone 4G to be available sometime in June!
AT&T may have finally done something to make their iPhone customers happy. Ironically, though, they may have put another nail in the coffin of their relationship with their traditionally super secretive partner, Apple.
MobileCrunch are reporting that a number of AT&T customers on contract with iPhones are noticing a rather suspicious update to their upgrade status. Basically the date they are allowed to upgrade their current phone to perhaps a new iPhone.
One customer who bought his iPhone 3GS last year has had an Upgrade Eligibility date of the 21st of November since then. But today he noticed that this has changed to the 21st of June. Why could that be we have to wonder?
Apparently not everyone on AT&T is seeing this, but it is certainly not an isolated incident according to various sources.
When you add this bit of information to our report not so long ago about AT&T putting a block on staff holidays in June. Traditionally a sign of an iPhone launch. June the 21st, after Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference is looking like a likely date for 4th generation iPhone goodness of some sort.
But MobileCrunch do also point out that Apple traditionally launch new products on a Friday. So that would most likely mean that the iPhone would be available the Friday before the 21st, perhaps giving some time for retail sales from Apple first over that weekend. Apple like weekends for product launches.
Confusingly Apple’s WWDC is on the 7th of June, and Apple also have an event booked at the Yerba Buena Arts Center for the 22nd of that month too. So at the moment the actual date is anyones guess. But Apple sure is doing something in June!
What do you think? Have you had an update in your upgrade status from AT&T? Let us know in the comments.
