ATT rep confirms no iPhone 5 launch this summer

first_imgApple may not comment on rumor, speculation, or future plans, but it does inform its partners of what to expect in the near future. And it seems AT&T has now been told there will be no June or July iPhone 5 launch.An AT&T customer noticed that his eligibility for a smartphone upgrade had moved back 5 months without any notice from AT&T as to why.
