After a long wait, the world has finally learned that Apple is going to unveil and announce the release date for iPhone 5 next week. With speculation of when Apple’s event would be held at rest, we can now begin to think about what Apple has in store for us.
First off, an iPhone 5 is a given, however, whether the name will be iPhone 5 is still questionable. Apple is also expected to introduce iOS 5 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. In the past, Apple has announced iOS updates prior to any new hardware and broke this systematic product release earlier this year.
Apple’s new CEO Tim Cook will also be testing out his skills onstage, toting the new iPhone 5 and all of the new releases, without the assistance of Steve Jobs. After the announcement of the iPhone 5 / 4S, which will likely go on sale on the 14th as expected, developers will be allowed to experience the new device hands on.
Developers may also receive a GM seed of iOS 5 if that is announced alongside the new hardware. Apple’s October 4th “Let’s Talk iPhone” event will be a sight to see, something that has been systematic and smooth in the past. The “Let’s Talk iPhone” media event will begin at 10AM PST (1PM EST) on October 4th.
Stay tuned, we’ll keep you updated on Apple’s announcements and releases as they break.
