Apple sends out invites to official iPhone 5 launch unveiling

The day many have been waiting for is finally here, Apple has officially confirmed the iPhone 5 release announcement will be held in Cupertino next Tuesday, October 4th

Apple has issued the official invites to next week’s Apple iPhone 5 release date announcement, confirming the numerous rumours that suggested the iPad and iPod maker would unveil its next-generation handset on October 4th.

Set to be held at Apple’s Cupertino Campus next Tuesday, October 4th, Apple’s newly instated CEO Tim Cook will take to the stage to officially showcase the handset that has held the tech world’s interest for the past six months.

Simply announcing “Let’s talk iPhone,” the Apple invite has been issued one week prior to the official event with much speculation still surrounding what form and features the next-generation iPhone will take.

iPhone 5 Rumours

Expected to launch with the same A5 dual-core processor as the iPad 2 a number of leaked iPhone 5 specs have seen the mooted device tipped as sporting a new, slimmer form factor alongside an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording capabilities and 1GB of RAM.

Whist the iPhone 5 is to be next Tuesday’s focal point, Apple’s October 4th event is also set to see the arrival of the white iPod Touch 3G and the iPhone 4S, an entry level iPhone that will adopt the iPhone 4’s form factor.

iPhone 5 Release Date

Whilst we must wait until next Tuesday for official word, attention will now turn to when the iPhone 5 will be made available to consumers. Based on past launches it is possible the handset will be made available for pre-order immediately ahead of an October 14th iPhone 5 release date.
