  • 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.

      Prediction: This will be a small evolution of the iPhone and a big disappointment for many but it will still outsell any other phone on the market. By far.

      Prediction, Jenson Button will take another win at the Italian Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton will whine and b1tch again and divulge more McLaren team secrets/telemetric data. Romain Grosjean will not race because he is banned. Pastor Maldonado will crash out again, likely taking out somebody else with him. The Sauber boys, Checo Perez and Kamui Kobayashi will actually show the race pace of their cars, with at least one of them finishing in the podium. My my guess for the 3rd podium position will be Kimi Räikkönen

      Perhaps the 5 is a number represented by the number of announcements they will be making ?

      I'm sure the 360 represents something. Just like the iPhone 3G isn't the 3rd generation but does have 3G Data.

      That's a reference to the amount of hours it's got until it needs fixing.

      I wonder if the rumors are gonna be true that if you upgrade to an iPhone 5 with the dicounted price thru Verizon they will take away your unlimited data plan forcing you to buy it outright in order to keep your unlimited data

      He means the new iPhone. From what I have heard in the US the unlocked one will come later, October some time.

      Its been fairly clear Apples intentions are to do full number increments to the name every two models.
      Next year expect iPhone 5S, in 2014 expect iPhone 6 yet it will be the 8th model. It's not that hard to understand or make sense of.
      If you really want, just think of the iPhone 4S, as iPhone 4.5. Cos at the end of the day that's all it was, I slight improvement to the iPhone 4

      Why get butthurt over a name? Assassins Creed 3 isn't the third game in the series, you don't see people having freak outs over that.
      Thank the lord someone said this I just can't understand why people can get so freaked out over a number!!

      I will hate iOS 6 and the new design but I'll still buy the phone. My contract has expired so time to get the latest in technology.

      Obviously it stands for iPod touch 5. No new iPod last year, no new iPhone this year.
