There have been rumors in the past about a September 2012 release for the new iPhone 5 from Apple, but now there’s confirmation from Apple itself that it’s happening. More specifically, it’s set to be unveiled on September 12.
Members of the media have received a vague (but unmistakable) announcement in the form of an invitation to a media event to be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco on September 12, 2012. As you can see in the above picture, the tagline is “It’s almost here” with a big “12” topped off by a shadow of the number “5.”
Needless to say, that can only mean one thing: The wait for the iPhone 5 is almost over (eight days, to be exact).
