Apple Issues Invitations for October 4th iPhone Media Event

Confirming earlier reports, Apple today issued media invitations for a special iPhone event to be held next Tuesday, October 4th at the company's Town Hall auditorium at its headquarters in Cupertino, California. The event is scheduled to begin at 10:00 AM Pacific Time.

As noted by The Loop, invitations for the event carry the tagline "Let's talk iPhone" and depict iOS icons for Calendar, Clock, Maps, and Phone.

Apple is of course widely expected to introduce its next-generation hardware (whether it be iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, or both) at the event, and is expected to also be including a minor update to its iPod line. iOS 5 and iCloud are also expected to be topics of discussion at the event, while other reports have indicated that Facebook may launch its iPad app at the event.

The date (October 4) clearly indicates that the announcement is for iPhone 4s :D

HOWEVER the Octo in October suggests that they're releasing EIGHT new models! :D

Thank god. The rumors can finally stop!


(BTW, my guess, the "1" means a single combined multi-carrier iphone -- no separate CDMA or GSM versions.)

I'm guessing that 1 means that there will only be one phone launched. That's what stands out for me anyway.

No that means 1 missed call ;)
