The event invitations are out. It’s official. First reported by Jim Dalrymple from The Loop, Apple’s upcoming event is happening on September 12th, 2012. It will take place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts at 10:00 am.
There is almost no question that Apple will unveil a new iPhone. What it will be named remains unknown. From the shadow in the above photo, that was sent with the invitation, we see that it shows the number “5.” This could mean a few things. First, it could mean that it will be called the iPhone 5. Second, it could mean that they will be releasing five things (such as the new retina iMac, new iPhone, new iPod Nano, new iPad mini, etc.) When Apple released the latest generation of iPad, they rebranded it to “the new iPad.” Apple could end up rebranding the iPhone as well and dropping the version number from the name.
One thing is for sure. It’s almost here.
