We have been hearing rumors over the last few weeks that Apple would be announcing the new iPhone 5 on the 12th of September, Apple has now sent out press invites to a special event on the 12th of September.
The iPhone 5 launch event will take place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco at 10.00 AM Pacific time or 1.00PM Eastern time, and as well as the new iPhone 5 we can expect to find out more details about iOS 6.
Apple will probably put the iPhone 5 up for pre-order the same day, they usually start selling the iPhone 5 on a Friday, so if they follow last years pattern we can expect the iPhone 5 launch on either Friday the 21st of September or Friday the 28th of September.
I suspect that the iPhone 5 will go on sale on the 21st of September, which would give Apple over a week to make the device available for pre-order, as soon as we get some more information we will let you guys know.
