The new iPhone might launch on Sprint in October

If you've been following the news lately, you probably know that the new iPhone is expected to launch on September 21, after being announced officially at the September 12 Apple press conference. What's interesting, however, is that perhaps not all U.S. carriers will get it on that same day, judging by the evidence that has leaked. In particular, Verizon and AT&T are to have the new iPhone in stores on the 21st, yet Sprint might be late to the party by a few weeks. Or at least that is the conclusion we can arrive at after examining this leaked Sprint employee training material, which you see in the image.

It is mentioned in the leaked paper that on October 15, "dealers will offer more robust in-store support for Sprint iPhone users", which leads us to believe that Sprint will get the iPhone on October 15. "In preparation, team members, including sales reps and ASC techs, are required to complete mandatory training courses," is also being stated.

Still, this is but a rumor that might end up being inaccurate, so don't get frustrated just yet. But even if what is said above is true and Sprint does get the new iPhone three weeks after Verizon and AT&T, would that be much of a problem? Let us know what you think by dropping a comment!
