Apple May Announce iPhone 5 on October 4

| Rumor

Apple will apparently host its special media event to unveil the iPhone 5 on Tuesday, October 4. The event, according to unnamed sources familiar with Apple’s plans, will be run by Apple’s new CEO Tim Cook.

AllThingsD reports that the actual iPhone 5 launch will follow the media event by a few weeks.

Along with Mr. Cook, reporters can expect to see other members of Apple’s senior executive team take the stage during the unveiling presentation, such as Phil Schiller, Scott Forestall and Eddy Cue.

Apple hasn’t revealed any iPhone 5 features yet, but that hasn’t stopped rumors or speculation. Based on the current batch of rumors, the next iPhone could have a bigger screen, or maybe the same size screen, an 8 megapixel camera, the same body design as the iPhone 4, or maybe a redesigned body, an A5 processor like the iPad 2, NFC support for digital wallet services, and world phone support.

None of the rumored iPhone 5 features have been confirmed by Apple, and since the company hasn’t sent out invitations for the media event, there isn’t any official word on when — or if — it will be happening.

Funny stuff, Jeff. It may be blue, or it may not be blue…

Apple is doing a pretty good job at hiding a lot of the details…

Meh. Let me know when Apple issues actual invitations.

[crack-pot theory] There will be no invitations. Apple will pack the room with Apple employees as a “live studio audience” while they deliver a web streamed video, which will have been pre-recorded and a digitized Steve Jobs will give the presentation.
