BREAKING: Apple planning major product launch for 10th retail anniversary!?

We have just received some information from a solid Apple source, and if they’re right, Apple may be planning something big for its 10th retail anniversary this Thursday the 19th. Here’s what we’ve been told:

There’s an overnight shift planned for around 10-15 individuals at each Apple Store to work from late Saturday all the way through mid-Sunday.
During the overnight shift, it’s going to be required that employees lock cell phones in the main office. They will also have to sign an NDA with Apple.
There are a wide variety of roles, we’re told, for the overnight shift. This includes all visuals staff, a manager, a business team member, a few Genius team members, one back-of-house employee, and a few generic Apple specialists.
Apple stores have apparently already received hardware to install, and are expecting more hardware to come on Friday or Saturday. All materials that Apple stores have received have been instructed to be under lock and key until after close on Saturday night.
Apple employees will be putting up black curtains at all stores so that people walking outside cannot see inside.
Employees have had to download gigabytes of data from Apple corporate labeled, “training” in a password-protected zipped folder that won’t accessible to managers or anyone else until Saturday afternoon.
Lastly, all Apple retail stores have mandatory meetings on Sunday, May 22nd. Most meeting are scheduled for the morning, but there are evening meetings as well.

The question is, what is Apple planning?

Why would it be iOS 5 on the tenth anniversary their retail stores? Apple doesn't launch anything withouth their customary "look at me" event.

Don't expect anything. The anticipation k!lls the surprise. I'm off the 19th so I could check out the fu*kery first hand when the store opens.

Think it might be too early to show off iOS5 until the new iPhone comes. Haven't most iOS's been announced when the new iPhone is announced?

March 22nd is a quarterly meeting, and that's all I'll say about that. Those are common, they happen every retail quarter, and they usually involve a NDA (non-disclosure agreement).

I have an idea of what it could be, but what I'm thinking of is pretty mundane and wouldn't even effect customers, only employees.

So does training often happen during quarterly meetings?

Not really. If a new feature is unveiled it will just be a really detailed explanation of it. It's usually a review of the quarter from a goal standpoint of the store as a whole, and mentioning whatever is coming up next quarter.

I am in no way saying that I am employed by, or affiliated with Apple. :dancingcool:

To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if they had spies everywhere.

I dunno, this sounds serious...

-Could be an exaggeration.
-The "hardware" mentioned might already be in stores. I'll give you a hint on what I'm thinking. Apple employees already have mobile devices in the store. What if they ALL had the most popular, magical device of this year at their fingertips?

This would be big for retail, but wouldn't affect the customers much, except their experience in the stores. That's why I think a lot of people are going to be disappointed.

So you're saying Apple has the Galaxy S II in their stores?
