Following up on our report on the aesthetics of the iPhone 5 comes more confirmation that a launch is scheduled for mid-late September, to be preceded by an unveiling on September 12.
News of the September 12 Apple special media event was first noted by iMore and since confirmed by All Things D:
Apple hasn’t yet officially announced the fall event at which it is expected to debut the next iteration of the iPhone, but it’s definitely planning one.
iMore was first to report that the company has scheduled a special event for Wednesday, September 12, and now we’ve confirmed it as well. Sources tell AllThingsD that Apple is currently planning an event for that week. And while we haven’t yet confirmed its focus, history suggests it will indeed be the new iPhone.
And if that’s not enough to convince you, this was also corroborated by The Verge and the almost always reliable Jim Darlymple who simply added a “yep” to the September 12 speculation.
