iPhone 13 could make its much-anticipated debut on September 14, according to teasers from one U.K. carrier.

Sky Mobile is already giving customers the opportunity to pre-register for “all the info on the upcoming big announcement.” Those who do will get access to an exclusive offer on the “next generation” device.

Recent rumors have suggested Apple will hold its next iPhone event on September 14 before new handsets land on customer’s doorsteps a week later. We now have something a little more concrete to back up those claims.

Sky Mobile, a major carrier in the U.K., is teasing a big announcement for September 14. And they don’t get much bigger than a new iPhone launch.

iPhone 13 to arrive on September 14?

Sky has been sending out tweets to tease the announcement ahead of official word from Apple. It doesn’t mention Apple or iPhone — or anything else that might reveal exactly what the announcement will bring.

But, given how popular iPhone is in the U.K., with more than half the smartphone market share, and the recent rumors surrounding a September 14 event from Apple, it’s likely that’s what Sky is referring to.

Its teasers could be based on the aforementioned iPhone 13 event rumors. However, it’s unlikely a major carrier would base promotions like this around untrusted whispers. It is probably privy to some info from Apple instead.

If indeed iPhone 13 does make its debut on September 14, we can expect Apple to confirm that sometime today. It usually announces big keynotes one week before they are set to take place.
