One of the worst kept secrets of the last few months has now been officially confirmed. That’s right Apple fans, your favorite fruit-flavored tech company has started sending out invites for its big iPhone 5 shindig taking place next month.
As we told you previously, the magic day is October 4th and the event will take place at Apple’s campus in Cupertino, CA. It will begin at 10AM Pacific and by 11AM we should know if we’re getting an iPhone 5 any time soon, and if so, what that may entail specs and features-wise.
In the interest of participating in the often amusing speculation game I would guess we will see a few announcements at least. The first will be a firm release date for IOS 5. Next, we’ll probably get an announcement that the iPhone is coming to Sprint.
Finally, the big one. Apple will announce the iPhone 5 (or whatever they end up calling it) and the world, as we know it, will remain largely the same. It is just a phone, after all. Sure, it’s pretty much the best phone available (unless you have AT&T service) with the best apps out there but still, at the end of the day, just a phone.
In fact, I’ll be interested to see if the iPhone 5 will have 4G on Verizon’s network. If not, I might have to wait for the iPhone 6. I do like me some 4G and my iPhone 4 works quite well at the moment, thank you very much.
Fortunately, we don’t have to wait too long to find out what’s going to happen. October 4th is right around the corner.
