HOUSTON— In about a week we should know a lot more about the latest Apple iPhone, presumed to be called iPhone 5.
Apple Tuesday morning sent out the invites to a Sept. 12 press conference in San Francisco. The email shows a big “12” while casting a shadow in the shape of a “5” – a mysterious yet unsurprising move by the tech company that’s always kept mum on its products prior to their formal launch.
If tradition continues, a Sept. 12 announcement would mean the Apple iPhone 5 would go on sale by the end of the month for about $200 on a two-year contract.
Internet rumors point to a new docking cable size, screen size, and upgraded processor. This would be the biggest change yet for the phone, which was first launched in 2007.
Analysts say the new iPhone will set sales records, and there may be longer lines due to a short supply of parts.
