Apple iPhone October 4th - Get ready for the version 5 launch! AT&T has told workers something that hints at a new release. The company is preparing for something major next month.

AT&T declined to comment on a report that quoted a company vice president as tipping his hand by telling employees to “expect things to get really, really busy in the next 35 to 50 days, so prepare your teams accordingly,” and that could be the iPhone 5 is coming soon.

The iPhone launch is expected to be handled by AT&T and Verizon Wireless at the same time, which would be a first. AT&T had an exclusive on Apple’s best seller for several seasons. Apple has since branched out to include other carriers.

Supporting other carriers could mean more customers who are shopping for better rates. It also means that Verizon customers don’t have to buy into an AT&T contract for two years. This could be the most popular iPhone launch since both wireless carriers are going to promote the latest Apple device.

While the iPhone has previously come out at the beginning of summer each year, the next version is launching much later. Early reports had the phone launching anytime between September and October.
