iPhone will definitely be available in June. This is according to an AT&T senior executive squashing rumors circulating this week that the release of iPhone will be delayed due to technical difficulties.

The iPhone from Apple Inc. will hit stores in the U.S. by end of June, according to a Reuters report, which quoted an AT&T Inc. senior executive. AT&T's wireless unit won an exclusive U.S. deal to sell the new handset.

"Our expectations are good. Our testing has been good," said AT&T chief operating officer Randall Stephenson, as quoted in the Reuters report. "The iPhone is on target to launch in June."

According to Stephenson, over 1 million customers have said that they would like to buy the highly-anticipated phone once they are available. However, he noted that he is unsure about the number of iPhones that will be available for the launch. AT&T's wireless unit won an exclusive U.S. deal to sell the iPhones.

"We're sorting through that right now," Stephenson said. "We got a million people waiting to buy it so we're hoping we get a million."
