US telecomm, T-Mobile has begun blocking employee vacations from Friday 20 September, according to reports, with the Apple iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C smartphones scheduled to debut that day.

The vacation blackout continues through to Sunday 22 September, TmoNews reports, ensuring all T-Mobile employees are available to assist the usual crowd of iPhone customers.

While the report clarifies the blackout is only a rumour, and should be taken as such, it would fit with the current 10 September launch speculation.

If Apple uses a similar timeline to its 2012 iPhone 5 release, the Cupertino-based company will unveil its devices midweek – often a Tuesday or Wednesday – and release the devices on the Friday of the next week.

The latest rumours would suggest the iPhone 5S will provide a camera upgrade, introduce a gold colour option, boost security with a fingerprint scanner and potentially increase the processing power with a new ‘A7′ chip.

If this is the correct date, it would be likely the next-generation iPhones and iOS 7 would be available in Australia on the same date.
