4th-Gen iPhone Gets a New Release Date: June 18th?
According to the sources at BGR, there is high chance that the next Apple iPhone will go on sale nationwide on Friday, June 18th 2010. They have confirmed it through multiple AT&T store reps that since the sales quotas for this month are very high, what this means is that the iPhone 4G/HD is confirmed to launch sometime in June, not July.
Knowing how many units stores received per day/week last year, if the iPhone launched in the last week of June, on Friday the 25th, we’re pretty sure the new sales quotas couldn’t be met (in-store orders don’t count as they don’t get recognized until the customer picks them up). We have heard stores having a 25-30% increase in their sales quota, so we’d like to think the next Apple iPhone will launch on Friday, June 18th.
Previously, we have been hearing June 7th, 21st, 22nd or 25th as the expected launch dates for the next iPhone. All this and more will be known in less than three days at WWDC 2010, where Steve Jobs will be on stage to announce the next iPhone, along with the final version of iPhoneOS 4.
