Apple has posted a new job listing which indicates Sprint as a future iPhone carrier. This new job listing was posted on April 2nd, and is for a “Carrier Engineer” situated at Kansas City, MO, as noticed by Stop It, AT&T. Since then, the job listing has been removed from Apple’s job site, either because the requirement was filled or because of the media attention and speculation that it created. Let’s have more information on this from below.
Member of the Carrier Engineering team that supports taking products through technical approval at the carriers. A Carrier Engineer team is responsible for day-to-day technical interactions with the one or more carriers to track down issues reported by the carrier, assist the carrier with testing they might be conducting and working with program management, software development and test teams to get products approved by the carriers.
Well, usually, Apple doesn’t hire employees in the Kansas City area, and hence, this incident has brought a lot of suspicion and speculation about a Sprint iPhone 5 / 4S, as Sprint’s headquarters are located in the Kansas City suburb in Overland Park.
As you can remember, recently in last week, Jeffries analyst speculated that Apple’s next-generation iPhone will debut in September on the carriers like Sprint as well as T-Mobile USA, bringing the iPhone to all four major carriers in the US. Well, by combining this report and the previous Jeffries analyst’s report, we can say, the month of September will bring a good buzz of iPhone as it will be on two more U.S. carriers with a new re-design.
