Apple hosting iPhone 5 event on September 12

Long-awaited announcements to come

Apple has reportedly begun sending out press invites to an event on September 12.


As usual, the invite doesn't specifically what the event is for, but the big 12 - representing the date - is shadowed by the number 5, and since everyone's expecting the next-generation iPhone announcement, it's all fairly obvious.

Expect to find out if this video really did expose the first proper glimpse of the new iPhone (or parts of it at least), and if reports of a bigger screen, 4G support and a new power connector are true.

The event will be hosted at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts at 10am Pacific / 6pm UK on September 12, reports TUAW. It has been speculated that the iPhone 5 release date will be later this month.

Expect stunts, explosions, fireworks and whooping from tech journalists.
