iPhone 5 is Coming: Apple Announces September 12 Event

Sep 4, 2012 - 5 Comments

It’s now official; Apple is holding an event on September 12 in San Francisco to launch the next iPhone. Select press members were sent an invitation to the Yerba Buena Center this morning with the cryptic but obvious message of “It’s almost here.”

Interestingly, that same invite graphic from Apple shows the number “12” reflecting the number “5”, strongly suggesting that Apple will indeed reference the new device as the “iPhone 5″.

There were some suggestions the next iPhone would be called “The new iPhone” rather than “iPhone 5″, taking a cue from “The new iPad” which was so named rather than “iPad 3″. Colloquially, the devices often end up being called by a number anyway, perhaps a reason for Apple to directly indicate the number 5.

The launch date of September 12 has been expected for some time, and most indications point to a release date on September 21.
