Apple Issues Invitations for Media Event on September 12

The Loop reports that Apple has just sent out invitations for a media event scheduled for next week Wednesday, September 12. The event will be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and is scheduled to begin at 10:00 AM Pacific / 1:00 PM Eastern. The tagline on the invitation is simply "It's almost here."

Apple is of course expected to introduce the next-generation iPhone and give a final preview of iOS 6 at the event. Apple's "iPad mini" is reportedly also nearing a launch, but sources have indicated that Apple is planning a second media event for October to introduce that product. Apple's iPod lineup is also rumored to be seeing an update at one of the two events, while rumored iMac updates and the launch of a 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro are likely to appear separately.

There's clearly a "5" in the shadow of the invitation, suggesting that Apple's next iPhone will indeed be called the iPhone 5.

I have nothing else to add I suppose, at least without seeming petty. ;)

Oh noes! A 5!

The iPhone 6 trolls will be vanquished forever, driven back to their caves of lunacy by a shimmering sword of common sense!

Someone needs to write a letter to Phil Schiller and explain to him that this CANNOT be "iPhone 5" because this is actually the 6th generation iPhone.

Oh wait, nobody cares. :rolleyes:

This is ultimate proof that the device will be called "iPhone '12" and that the next-gen iPhone offers FIVE brand new features.
