Apple have finally confirmed a special invite-only iPhone Event on October 4th 10:00 am (US Pacific time), which will be October 5th Australian time. John Paczkowski over at All Things D reported the news a short time ago. The invite graphic has a very basic grid of 4 default iPhone applications with the text ‘Let’s talk iPhone’ below.
While it is great to have an iPhone-related event locked-in, there is something about the invite feels strange. There’s no teasing image of an iPhone 5 silhouette, which could be done without revealing critical information. Reading between the lines, the very blunt statement, Let’s talk iPhone, combined with picture of app icons, almost sounds like Apple will not launch a new iPhone but focus on iOS 5 on the iPhone.
It is telling that this event will take place to a small invite-only select crowd at Apple’s Cupertino campus, rather than at WWDC in front of thousands at a larger venue like Moscone West Centre like they have in the past. Let’s hope this event isn’t Apple’s way of letting us down gently that iPhone 5 is delayed. Time will tell.
