Posted In Apple news - By Joon On Saturday, September 24th, 2011 With 0 Comments

With the next generation iPhone coming soon to an Apple Store near you, all we want to know about it is whether we are going to see an iPhone 5 and/or iPhone 4s are when the phone is going to be released to the public.

News leaked out today from inside the Apple Store that employees will not be allowed to take a vacation the second week of October. With the next generation iPhone likely to come out sometime in October, it is likely that the next generation iPhone will be released in the time frame that Apple has blocked out for their employees.

AppleInsider reports:

“Apple is quietly denying requests for employee vacations during the second week of October, hinting that the company currently anticipates an influx of customers to its stores around that time related to availability of its new iOS 5 and fifth-generation iPhone products.

More specifically, the iPhone maker has in some locations blacked out vacation time for employees from October 9th through 12th and October 14th through 15th, according to people familiar with the matter.”

Apple has also told its employees that they should be expecting an influx of iOS 5 questions during that time period. It is likely we will be seeing the next iPhone launch coming alongside iOS 5 and iCloud.

Do you think this is a sign of the next generation iPhone coming?
