According to a new report from China, Apple is expected launch the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C in China and selected countries around the world on September 20. This move is significant, given that Apple usually launches their products in China months later compared to US and selected European countries.
It’s reported that Apple has received the Ministry device authentication for both iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. The iPhones are expected available at the Unicom and China Telecom. China Mobile, the largest mobile phone operator in the world is said to be in negotiation with Apple to carry the handset.
In other news, T-Mobile US reportedly blacked out the 20th September. According to a report by Cult of Mac, “an internal T-Mobile employee schedule, it looks like this year’s iPhone launch weekend will be September 20th-22nd. T-Mobile has blacked out these dates so employees can’t take vacations, which is the typical all-hands-on-deck approach that carriers reserve for new iPhone launches.”
