    Default Upcoming iPhone Event May Be Held at Apple Campus


    While there is every indication that Apple will hold a special event early next month to unveil new iPhone models, no invitations to the event have been sent out as of yet. New indications now point to the event not taking place in San Francisco at all this year. Instead, it now appears that Apple will make the announcement a little closer to home: at Apple’s own Town Hall Auditorium in Cupertino, CA.

    Traditionally, Apple holds these events in San Francisco, usually at either the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts or at Moscone Center. Both venues are generally capable of accommodating several thousand members of the press. By contrast, Apple’s Town Hall Auditorium only has seats for a couple of hundred attendees.

    This will be the first major product launch for Tim Cook since Steve Jobs resigned his position as CEO last month. Moving the event to a smaller auditorium may actually be a smart move for Apple. It will give new CEO Tim Cook a chance to shine on his own and assert himself as the new head of the company.

    One thing is for certain though: Apple won’t be making any announcements from Moscone Center next month. Oracle's OpenWorld conference is currently scheduled to take place there from October 2-6.

    Apple recently blocked out Apple Store employee vacations for the second week of October. In the past, Apple has held press events days or weeks before actual products ship. It seems likely that this will be the case for this product launch as well.

    Even though Apple’s Town Hall Auditorium isn’t a particularly large venue, it has played host to a number of big Apple announcements in the past, including the unveiling of the unibody MacBook Pro, iOS 3.0, and updated MacBook Air models.

    Hopefully, the home field advantage will be a benefit to Tim Cook as he steps out on stage for his first product launch since taking over the company. It’s sure to be another home run for Apple.

    Let's hope there IS actually an event... Apple has been making us wait far too long...all I can say is the next iPhone(s) better be spectacular, or Apple won't have many happy campers...

    secret moderator... Please hit that THANKS button over there if I helped you in any single way

    I have to agree that the wait has been quite a while... still im very excited that there will be a new iphone. We can all speculate day in and out but one thing we know for sure is that apple has made a new handset. Whether it's an iphone 5 that blow's us away or an upgraded version of the current awesome i4, it's still a new handset nonetheless. I am very excited though!

    thats what I am saying, I had the 3Gs for so long I got bored and upgraded to an iPhone 4 and that was over a month ago. I am glad I did, I will be able to enjoy my iPhone 4 while the jailbreak tweaks are worked out for the new iPhone(s) then I will buy 2 of them.

    Well it definately won't be at the normal location as Oracle Open World takes over the whole of Exhibition centre. I'd rather have waited a couple of months extra to get a phone they've worked out all the bugs for then get one early and have repeat of last year. Saying that financially it will be better to, less to pay out on my iPhone 4.

    My brother jumped ship last year. He is waiting anxiously to be able to switch back to an iPhone (when his contract is over).For you guys with the iPhone4, do you buy a new phones every year?

    It has only been 18 months since iPhone 4 came out. You guys are spoiled.

    I have to say that a RAM increase over the ip4 is really the only thing on my MUST HAVE list. If it doesn't have that then IMHO it probably won't be worth getting, and instead I'll just grab a cheap (probably refurb'd) iP4 to replace my slow POS 3GS.

    I originally bought the 3GS cause the iPhone 4 wasn't in stores for about 6 months. I upgraded to the 4 last winter and sold my 3GS for $350 so payed for the cost of the 4. I will probably just stick with the iPhone 4 until the next one comes out.

    Oh I'm positive it'll have at least 512 if not 1gb.

    That's what I'm saying. If it only has 512MB RAM then I probably won't be getting it since iP4 already has 512.

    Man I would love to make the jump from a phone with 256MB to 1GB RAM. That would be awesome.

    If you ask me I don't think Apple is behind the curve when it comes to the hardware. It's the software that's somewhat dated. They need to add some cool feature to make them compete with Android phones. I can't wait to see what is in IOS5. But then again I'm not holding my breath either.
