Apple has just sent out out press invites for a September 12th event that has the number 5 in the shadow of the date. While the invite does not specifically state that the iPhone 5 will be announced, considering the dozens of leaks leading up to the event, it’s all but certain.
Indeed, if the iPhone 5 is little more than the incremental innovations we’ve been hearing about — a longer, thinner screen, a smaller dock connector, and no NFC (near-field communications, which would allow you to pay in stores with your phone) — it may be a prudent move for the company to deflate the bubble of speculation a little.
If you’re already shuddering at the thought of paying out for the new device, Apple can help you offset the cost by offering you up to $345/£300 for your device, depending on its condition.
What are you expecting to see in the iPhone 5? Let us know in the comments.
