Apple Announces iPhone 5 Event for October 4th

Posted In iPhone - By Joon On Tuesday, September 27th, 2011 With 0 Comments

That day has finally come. The iPhone 5 announcement day has been, well announced. The often rumored October 4th has been confirmed as the day that Apple will definitely unveil their next generation handset.

With the iPhone 4 more than a year old, Apple has gone off their usual track of a one year refresh cycle, most likely due to the fact that Apple introduced the iPhone 4 on Verizon pretty late into the iPhone 4 refresh cycle and probably did not want to tick off all those new Verizon customers that had just purchased an iPhone 4.

Like previously reported, the event will take place at Apple’s Infinite Loop campus in Cupertino at 10 p.m. PST or 1 p.m EST. The main presenter of the keynote will likely be new CEO Tim Cook, who will be taking a big step in his new role as CEO of the company and establishing himself as the new face of Apple.

Apple will likely unveil the next generation iPhone. Whether it will be a 5, 4S or both has yet to be seen. What is known is that there will be even more features of iOS revealed, a minor update to the iPod touch line announced and an announcement that nobody is expecting.

What is interesting to note about the invitation is that there is a 1 marker on the phone icon. Could this be Apple hinting that they will only announce one next-generation device?

From iDB:

Interestingly, the image that Apple used on the invites may provide a clue as to what we can see come October 4th at 10:00am PST.

The image contains the Apple 1 Infinite Loop campus in the Maps app (where the event will be held), the correct date (Calendar app), the correct time (Clock app), and one more little interesting tidbit…

Did your eagle eyes catch it? That’s right, a one (1) notification badge on the Phone app. Now of course, this could just be a coincidence, but seeing as everything else coincides with a real world fact, I think it’s highly probable that Apple just confirmed that we’ll only see one iPhone on October 4th.

Not to mention that fact that the message says “Let’s talk iPhone.” Singular.

Apple may have also just hinted at the super secret “Assistant” feature that was detailed yesterday.

This could also be Apple’s method of easily letting down any ridiculously high expectations for next Tuesday’s event.

I don’t think I could any more excited for this iPhone event.
