Looks like the guys from Cupertino managed to overcome the manufacturing difficulties and now are working as were supposed to.

The company from Cupertino is reportedly planning to restrict vacation time for its German retail employees in September. The only possible reason for such a decision is the launch of a new product or products.

This is another indication of the iPhone release, which is said to take place in August or September.
