Today, Apple invited members of the press to attend an event 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 on September 12th. The tagline on the invitation is simply “It’s almost here.” The event is most likely where the next generation iPhone is expected to be officially unveiled. As rumored, it seems the regular iPod fall event has been split into two and there will be a second event in October with a miniaturized 7-inch iPad and some other refreshes. This event seems to be locked in for the iPhone 5 and I say iPhone 5 because on the press event invitations you can see a five in the shadow of the twelve.
Rumors say that the iPhone 5 will look similar to the one pictured above to left. More news on the iPhone can be found here.
