Official: iPhone 5 launches a week today!
We’d heard reports that an iPhone 5 launch event was scheduled for 12 September, but now it’s official. Apple’s sent out invites to to journalists for a press conference in California a week today, and they’ve got a mighty big clue hidden inside them.
The press conference is scheduled to take place at 6pm UK time on Wednesday 12 September at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, California. It’s where Apple has unveiled many products before, and looks set to be a shoe-in for the iPhone 5 too. How do we know? Have a look at the invite yourself:
As you can see, the dropshadow cast by the number 12 is in the shape of a five, which all but confirms it. Apple likes to drop hints like this in its invites, like the super crispy iPad screen hinted at in the invite to its new iPad launch earlier this year.
We don’t know for sure what the iPhone 5 looks like yet, but rumours suggest it’ll pack a bigger 4-inch screen, as well as a smaller dock for charging and accessories. Tune in for all the details next week!
