The report comes from AppleInsider, according to which:

Apple is quietly denying requests for employee vacations during the second week of October, hinting that the company currently anticipates an influx of customers to its stores around that time related to availability of its new iOS 5 and fifth-generation iPhone products.

More specifically, the iPhone maker has in some locations blacked out vacation time for employees from October 9th through 12th and October 14th through 15th, according to people familiar with the matter.

This clearly suggest that Apple is gearing up for the launch of iOS 5, iPhone 5 and a possible revised version of the iPhone 4. Prior to this, Al Gore, the former Vice President of United States and Apple board member was heard saying that ‘New iPhones’ are coming in October.
