On Tuesday, The Loop confirmed that Apple is holding a media event on September 12th to announce iPhone 5, as expected. The event, like all of Apple’s keynote events in the past, will be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco at 10:00 am.
The invite has a white background, with a large ‘12’ centered with a font similar to that of the numbers on the Calendar application.
Above the 12 are simply the words, “It’s almost here”. However, the main attraction of the invite is the shadow of a 5 coming off of the number twelve. The inclusion of the 5 is now leading to speculation and is being taken as a confirmation that the next generation iPhone will in fact be called the iPhone 5.
It is widely expected that Apple will unveil the iPhone 5 at this event, with a taller 4 inch screen, a redesigned dock connector, and a relocated headphone jack and FaceTime camera. With the announcement now confirmed for September 12th, the iPhone 5 is expected to be available for sale on September 21st in both Apple’s Retail stores and carrier stores. A full preview and likely the release of iOS 6 is also expected at the media event.
