iPhone 5 Announcement on September 7?

Apple Media Event for September 7 is the latest rumor

Is Apple going to announce iPhone 5 on September 7? According to Kodiwarisan, Apple will be hosting a media event on Wednesday, September 7, where new iPods and presumably the upcoming iPhone 5 will be announced.

MacRumors followed up on Kodiwarisans date and confirmed it as meaningful, and reminds us that past September events were also earlier in the month:

Apple has traditionally held their Fall media events in the first part of September with the past three events taking place on September 1st, 2010, September 9th, 2009, and September 9th, 2008. Last year’s event introduced new iPod touch, iPod nano and iPod shuffle models. This year’s event, however, has been widely expected to also incorporate the rumored iPhone 5 announcement. We confirmed with Kodawarisan that the date was not the product of guesswork, but came from a source in the know.

The date may have come from schedules at traditional Apple media event locations, like the Moscone Center or the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

There are a few things that should be pointed out. First, an announcement doesn’t mean a launch, and this is important because the the only time Apple has publicly given to hint at an iOS 5 release date has been a vague “Fall 2011″ date. It’s practically guaranteed that new iOS hardware won’t ship without iOS 5preinstalled. In other words, products may be announced, but not actually ship until weeks or even a month later. That would seem to correspond with an October availability for the next-gen iPhone, as AllThingsD/WSJ published earlier in the month.

The iPhone 5 is clearly the hot product that everyone is waiting for, but other fall product rumors have suggested the possibility of a retina iPad, a discontinuing of the iPod touch in favor of a cheap pay-go iPhone, and an updated Apple TV. We’ll find out in just a few weeks.

Update: Jim “The Beard” Dalrymple seems to debunk this one, citing his own sources.

    I hope we can actually pre-order the iPhone 5 this time online. I don’t want to be in a situation like the iPad 2 again where we spend 6 weeks waiting in lines or twiddling our thumbs… heh

    Come to think of it, I bet you the iPad 2 demand and shortage caused Apple to push off the release of iPhone 5 until the fall. All those A5 CPU’s were being sucked into the iPad 2 demand!

  2. I think that you’ve been misinformed. My sources are in agreement with Jim’s. Expect October.

      umm… no it shouldn’t… it’s be the size of a brick. Plus a 2.7ghz processor is bigger than apple uses in its computers, so it’d be stupid to put it in a phone.

    Hahahahah yeah right. Why dont they just put a 30mp camera in the iphone 5?? Why stop at 14?

  5. Chris says:

    2.7 ghz processor – AHAHAHA
    14mp camera maybe for iphone 6 or 7
    3d is already supported just not alot of developers have use used it fully
    hd 1080p recording – possible
    microsim is this not already in the iphone 4
    sd card support – not likely to ever see this
    transfer files through bluetooth wpuld like to see this butdef not in this version i know this as i am a developer in the dev program and have been running it ot for a while and they are past the new feature stage imo
    hd game – i dont know what you mean by this(through airplay?, usb support() , multitasking for all(that type of multi tasking will never be seen on the iphone untill battery life is drastically increased )
    multi os as android(idroid project already supports this ) ios and windows (lmfao, right)
