iPhone 5s supplies will be low at launch



According to information provided by llThingsD, some sources close to mobile carriers claim that the stock of the iPhone 5s will be very low during its launch on Friday, September 20th.

Sources at multiple U.S. carriers said that the inventory of the new phone is significantly less than expected.

“We will have grotesquely unavailable inventory,” was how one carrier source put it.

Another carrier confirmed 'extremely disappointing shipments' from Apple. However, it was stated that the demand for the iPhone 5s is likely to be slightly lower than expected. It seems the bright colors of the low-cost iPhone 5c have captured eyes of customers.

The new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will start selling in stores on September 20th at 8:00 a.m.

What iPhone 5S Home button might look like



A few days ago the photo of iPhone 5S packaging was published. The new device is expected to feature a new Home button - with a ring around it. According to rumors, this part is indeed the long-awaited fingerprint sensor.

A 3D artist Martin Hajek has rendered what the coming iPhone might look like if the image of Home button is correct. Martin's high-resolution picture features a LED illumination ring surrounding the Home button. However, no official statements have been made on this component, so we can only guess about its real appearance.

We will remind you again that Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C on September 10. The iPhone 5S device is likely to boast dual-led flash for better low light pictures, fingerprint sensor, improved processor, new champagne/graphite color options, and more.

Verizon to block employee vacations on September 18th-22nd



According to 9to5Mac, Verizon prohibiting employees to go on vacation between September 18th-22nd. This is exactly the period between rumored iPhone 5S release to be held on September 20th.

As Apple’s September 10th iPhone unveiling approaches, we’ve heard that Verizon Wireless is blocking its retail employees from requesting vacations between Wednesday, September 18th and Sunday, September 22nd. Based on Apple historically shipping new versions of the iPhone about a week and half following the unveiling, it would make sense for the new iPhones to arrive for customers on Friday, September 20th.

Moreover, Verizon is rumored to have little stocks of the 32GB and 64GB iPhone 5 models. So we may assume that the carrier is expecting the launch of new generation of devices. Walmart has also decreased the price of the iPhone 5 to $98 with Verizon contract.
