Apple Blocking Vacation Time for AppleCare Employees From September 15 to 28
31 Aug 2013 patrick mifsud 2
Apple appears to be cutting down on available vacation time for its AppleCare employees between September 15 and 28, a two-week period encompassing the rumoured September 20 release date for the iPhone5S,5C and iOS 7. An internal document shared by AppleInsider shows the amount of time off available for AppleCare employees in September, which appears to drop beginning on September 15.
An internal company document shared with AppleInsider purportedly shows time off available for AppleCare employees for the latter half of September. As can be seen in the calendar, available time off drops off significantly starting Sunday, Sept. 15, and continues through Saturday, Sept. 28.
The image provided shows the calendar being accessed via virtual private network from an internal Apple employee domain. Potentially identifying portions of the picture have been cropped out.
A number of mobile carriers have also started a similar vacation blackout on some of the same days, with T-Mobile employees reporting a September 20 to 22 blackout and Verizon employees reporting September 18 to September 22 blackout dates.
Apple most likely has a longer blackout period for its AppleCare employees to offer extended support to both iOS 7 users and new iPhone owners. AppleCare employees began training on support issues related to iOS 7 yesterday.Patrick Mifsud is
