  • Apple Starts Sending Out Oct 4 iPhone Media Event Invitations



    Apple has finally officially announced their October 4th iPhone media event.

    Invites are making their way out to the appropriate media outlets for the event taking place next Tuesday on Cupertino’s campus at the company’s Town Hall auditorium. The event is scheduled to begin at 10 A.M. PST.

    The invitations, pictured above, directly address the event's main subject with the tagline “Let’s talk iPhone.” Subtle, no?

    What is possibly a subtle hint is the notification located on the Phone app. It is showing a single missed call. This might be a stretch, but could this be a hint that Apple is planning on only announcing one new iPhone? Just thinking out loud here.

    Rumors surrounding the event's announcements have ranged from an updated iPod, to two different iPhones, the Facebook iPad app and others. What is almost guaranteed to show up is one new iPhone, iOS 5, iCloud, and the Twitter integration to iOS 5. But, then again, this all based on rumor and at this point there’s almost no reason to keep speculating, but this is the age of 24/7 news media. Speculation will continue until the bitter end.

      You are truly naive if you believed Apple is going to release 2 iPhones in a short period. Apple is renown for milking their customers yearly with decades of proof on their never ending line of products.

      Components get smaller, get integrated, get redundant. A year is a very long time to still be sure you can't fit 2 32GB chips inside an iPhone.
      The size of the major components are well known, as I said, it is possible (although for reasons I have explained, I believe unlikely) the iPhone 5 could be bigger as I said in my previous post.

      A bit of basic research would have answered your question.

      We shall find out soon enough who's right and who's wrong when Tim Cook unveils the new iPhone. If they actually do release a 64GB iPhone model, can I punch you in the face? (joking of course)

      I have explained how, in theory, they could. In the same size they can't. Can I (not me, because I've never hit anyone in my life but can I get someone else?)punch you in the face? (joking of course) if they don't?

      Well let's see, it's been 2 generations of the iPhone that apple hasn't offered it in 64GB. I don't see why apple wouldn't offer it in 64GB, it would make more sense. Sure, I'm quite confident that Apple won't fail me :P

      Do you even know what you are talking about? Explain how?

      First off, both iPod touch and iPad(2) are offered at 64GB at most. Having said that, it would be logical that Apple would offer the new iPhone in 64GB flavor. I myself have a 32GB iPhone 4 and yet that's not enough storage for me as I tend to sync everything I have from iTunes on my computer. I have about 3.2GB left on my iPhone 4 right now and I wish I had more as I download a lot of apps, music, videos, & photos. The app store and iTunes is continuously increasing in apps and music hence the extra storage would quite essential for someone to take everything with them on the go. Shall I explain more to you? Do you need more convincing?

      Have you actually read anything? I have explained many times why what you are saying is wrong. Why do you still display your ignorance?

      If you look at the tear downs iFixit has done for the iPhone 4 and the iPod touch you can see that the space the second 32GB chip in the iPod is taken up by the baseband chip in the iPhone and there is literally no other space to put it so unless the phone gets bigger or they have made a single 64GB chip it really is not possible.

      Look man, unless you've seen how big the next iPhone model is going to be don't assume that a 64GB model won't be possible, Apple always finds a way to achieve it.

      The argument from everyone was always there won't be a 64GB model IF IT'S THE SAME SIZE. They could make a terabyte iPhone in theory if it's big enough lol.

      I bet you when Tim Cook makes the first "public" phone call on stage with the iPhone 5, it will be to Steve Jobs!

      Twitpic - Share photos and videos on Twitter

      Four possible explanations
      1) The phone is bigger and allows for more room inside so 2 X32Gb storage and phone chips
      2) There are smaller chips that I don't know about that fit in the same size phone
      3) Someone has managed to produce 64Gb storage in sufficient quantity and quality (in which case expect a 128Gb iPod Touch)
      4) The pic is a fake.

      I guess we'll find out omn Monday.

      Does the iP4 come in a 64Gb version? If so, can't wait to see how they've done it!
