Bloomberg said that a spokesman for the German telecoms provider confirmed that customers can put their name on the list for the next-generation iPhone as the company anticipates massive demand for the device. However, the spokesman didn’t name the device or exact launch date, the report states.
Customers who reserve the next-generation iPhone will be given a priority coupon for the device.
Evidence that the iPhone 5 – if that is what it will be called – will launch in early October, at least in the US, has emerged in recent days. A leaked Best Buy document suggests that the launch will happen in the first week of October emerged, as well as reports from China that Foxconn and Pegatron are beginning to assemble the iPhone 5, even if they aren’t boxing the units yet as iOS 5 isn’t ready to install.
Staff at Apple Stores are also apparently being trained in iOS 5 and iCloud, it has been reported.
