UK Carrier Teases 'the Next Generation' Ahead of iPhone 13 Launch

The UK mobile carrier Sky is today teasing the launch of "the next generation," in what may be a hint at the seemingly impending launch of the iPhone 13 lineup.

sky the next generation is about to land
The company's webpage says that "the next generation is about to land" in an "upcoming big announcement," and encourages customers to sign up before Tuesday, September 14, to get access to an exclusive Sky Mobile offer.

The promotion has attracted interest since all indications are pointing to Apple planning to hold a digital event on September 14 to announce the ‌iPhone 13‌, Apple Watch Series 7, and third-generation AirPods, which is the same day that the early-bird Sky Mobile offer ends. There is no other sign from Sky that the offer relates to the ‌iPhone 13‌.

Some carriers have been known to provide discounted offers to customers who sign up to a contract for a next-generation iPhone model before it is officially announced, and this marketing appears to be in line with those similar promotions in the past. It is also possible that the announcement relates to something else entirely, but the September 14 date is sufficient proof for some observers that it relates to the ‌iPhone 13‌ lineup.

If the ‌iPhone 13‌ is set to be unveiled next week on September 14 as rumors suggest, invites would likely be sent out later today.

Looks like it is indeed related to the new iPhone. The hero image is called Apple_Launch_Pre_Reg_Desktop.png. https://static.skyassets.com/contentstack/assets/blt143e20b03d72047e/blt25252b7009982621/6130dfb485514a6ee3fac40d/Apple_Launch_Pre_Reg_Desktop.png

The filename of the background image on that Sky Mobile page is "Apple_Launch_Pre_Reg_Desktop.png" and the proportions of the white box shown are the same as last years iPhone 12 box. Also the meta description tag of that page reads "Find about Apple latest products and events including release date, iOS updates and phone deals with Sky Mobile."

This is just mind blowing! God,I tried for hours and hours back around Xmas time...forget it. Even today...forget it. (Even that XBox...and the only reason I want that is to fly Flight Simulator 2020..LOL)

I realize the whole pandemic chip shortage and extremed continued demand, plus bots that suck them up in seconds just to resell for massive profit elsewhere. ugh.
