Breaking News: Apple confirm iPhone 5 event on October 4th
Apple has confirmed today, September 27th, 2011, that the long awaited iPhone 5 will be announced on October 4th. The event may be available to view live or the keynote will surely be released shortly after the announcement. The event is said to start at 10:00am Pacific Time, so fans in the UK, that's a 6pm start.
The event will be held in Cupertino, California at their headquarters. An email from Apple was sent out earlier today to specific reporters on this major event. The email did not include, however, the details of what exactly will be released although most reports are guaranteeing that it will be the release of the iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S for that matter. There is still a possibility that two iPhone's will be released as has been rumored by various Technology blogs and also a possibility that the new iPod range could be announced although this is less likely as speculation has not been focused on the iPod range or any updates on the new iPod range have not come through as of yet.
A few days ago, AllThingsD reported, considering sufficient evidence, that Apple would be holding a special event on October 4 announcing the iPhone 5. He also stated that it would be led by its new CEO Tim Cook. They also reported that the iPhone 5 will go on sale a few weeks after the event with the official release in late October.
The image above provided by Apple, has a caption: 'Let's Talk iPhone.' This could possibly be linked to the rumored feature called Assistant which is basically voice control for the iPhone. This feature is one that can change the iPhone completely and will play a key part to the iPhone 5 success.
With the Assistant feature looking likely, we are sure that we can expect a faster processor, maybe an A5 processor?
