In a predicted step Apple has blocked out vacation requests for employers during the second week of October , as it’s expected that Apple will release the fifth generation iPhone device and iOS 5 so there is no time for vacations this days in Apple as the big event is about to be held.
More specifically, the iPhone maker has in some locations blacked out vacation time for employees from October 9th through 12th and October 14th through 15th, according to people familiar with the matter.
And about iOS 5.0 Release Date
The first block of dates -- the 9th through the 12 -- could pertain to the release of iOS 5 for existing iOS device owners on Monday the 10th. As AppleInsider reported last week, certain segments of the company's AppleCare divisions have been told to prepare for an influx of iOS-related inquiries on that same day.
Apple is rumored to be holding an event on October 4th to announce the fifth generation iPhone. That would give the company 10 days to take pre-orders ahead of launch.
