in brief Apple has overnight confirmed speculation that it will hold a September 12 event , where chances are exceedingly high that it will announce the latest iPhone amongst a range of sweeping updates to its iPod range if rumours are to be believed.
The Cupertino-based company sent out invites overnight to a number of United States media outlets inviting them to an event on the 12th September at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts from 10am PT (3am on the 13th for Australians) onwards.
“It’s almost here” the invite sent out reads, with a big 12 and a 5 in the shadow of the it – already prompting speculation about whether or not the 5 refers to the name of the device (iPhone 5) or something else.
A smaller iPad (dubbed online as the iPad Mini) and a refreshed iPod range are the latest speculation about what could be announced at the event – although it’s likely the iPad Mini will have an event of its own at a later date.
