  • Apple Announces iPhone 5 Event for September 12th


    Ladies and gentlemen, it's official. As widely anticipated, Apple will formally unveiled it's 6th generation iPhone next Wednesday, September 12th.

    Moments ago, word broke that Apple has begun inviting media to a company event scheduled for next week. Although no directly-stated mention of the iPhone was found on the invitation, Apple is all but certainly going to take the covers off of the refreshed iPhone next week.

    The invitations, which read "It's almost here," display a bold number 12 in light of the event's date. But the shadow cast by the date reflects a number 5, indicating that Apple is likely going to call the next-gen iPhone the "iPhone 5."

    For now, few other details we've heard in the rumor mill in recent months can be confirmed or denied. But we can finally put a time frame on when all of these answers and more will become clear.

    As of this writing, it's safe to expect a new iPhone on shelves or at your door on or around September 21st.

      Sons of anarchy, iPhone 5, and NHL 13? I think yes

      But along with iOS 6, apple never released a GM Version...? It's on beta 4 right now? Any thoughts on the status of iOS 6?

      I Agree, "The New iPhone" fits the profile better, But maybe the "Shadow 5" means the amount of devices.

      1.New iPhone
      2.New iPad Mini
      3.New iPod touch
      4.New iPod Nano
      5.New iPod Suffle or Classic.

      I think what he is referring to is Samsung b*tch slapping Apple with a lawsuit since they have not licensed Samsungs LTE tech, which they own a hefty percentage of.

      Look... if there is a product version 1 and then the next version is 1.1, should the next one be called 2 or 3? 2!!!

      My understanding is that the LTE chips they purchased come with a license already, but who knows.

      Can't wait to see what's all the hub is about and hopefully it's an LTE because that's what I'm looking for.

      I'm actually not that excited about LTE, even though I have unlimited data. I will just go through my data faster and get throttled sooner. I'm actually thinking of buying my phone unlocked and going prepaid with it.

      1. iPhone (2G edge phone)
      2. iPhone 3G (3G speed)
      3. iPhone 3GS ("S" for speed meaning ram that was made blatantly clear and spelled out by apple)
      4. iPhone 4 (new design, retina display)
      5. iPhone 4S ("S" for Siri, again, blatantly clear and spelled out by apple)
      6. iPhone 4G will be the next one for 4G LTE speeds. Seems to be logical.

      Then why is the iPhone 4 called iPhone 4?

      Why not? They did it before. Unless I'm just completely forgetting about the famous iPhone 2.

      I can't wait to see what they have in store for us on the 12th... I don't think I will upgrade/pre-order right away due to the fact I want to see what people are saying about it first also for the firmware 6.0 update I think I am going to wait til we have a UNTETHERED jailbreak before I update... I can't wait to see all the Cydia upgrades go haywire...lol

      Good thought, didn't think of that. I just feel that they like everything to be in sync and with it being the new iPad and not the 3, I just figured they would make it universal.
