Apple holding iPhone 5 event on October 4
Apple holding iPhone 5 event on October 4
As expected, Apple iPhone will hold an event next Tuesday on its Cupertino, Calif., headquarters.
The company sent an e-mail to select reporters earlier today, saying the event will begin at 10 am PT the following week with “executive presentation.” Although Apple does not specifically mention the iPhone 5 by name, is full of speculation that the company will present one or perhaps two, Iphones at the event.
Rumors have been swirling for months more, when Apple, finally introduce its next iPhone. In previous years, Apple has shown the new version of its popular smartphone in the Worldwide Developers Conference in June. Nevertheless, the new iPhone has been conspicuously absent from this year’s event, calling the rumors suggest that Apple, will wait until September or October, to show its latest handset.
Last week the All Things Digital, citing sources that Apple, will hold a special event on October 4, which would be headed by its new CEO, Tim Cook. Sources edition said that the new iPhone will be available “within weeks” after the announcement, the binding to release in late October.
That’s what Apple may show at the event, however, is unknown. Some reports suggest that the company could offer the new iPhone boasts only a minor upgrade over its predecessor, iPhone 4. Still others say the next iPhone from Apple will show off the connection 4G, from edge to edge display, and several other major improvements.
There are also a number of questions about how many Iphones will be earmarked for this event. Early rumors suggested that Apple, it would show an iPhone, but JP Morgan analyst Mark Moskowitz said earlier this month that he expects Apple, to launch two new smartphones this year. This view was supported by former U.S. vice-president and board member of Apple, Al Gore, who last week hinted that Apple, prepared two iPhones.
“Not to mention the new Iphones comes out next month,” Gore said during the leadership summit, Discovery Invest in South Africa.
In addition, iPhone, Apple, most likely, will discuss the IOS 5 and its cloud services, iCloud, which she presented at a conference WWDC earlier this year.
Lost among the discussion of new iPhones and IOS 5, however, Tim Cook. Although Cook does a bit of experience at the events Apple, this is the first time he will attend the launch as CEO. As already noted, AllThingsD Cook reported that the event would, assuming the role that Apple, Steve Jobs took the Chairman when he was CEO, arriving early and discuss the main boat, leaving many details to other leaders.
There is a lot riding on the Cook show at the event. Presentations Apple CEO could go under the microscope of shareholders who want to see if it is on the scene to deliver more-than-life persona Jobs brought to the main announcement of his company products. Moreover, shareholders want to see if the event from Apple with Cook at the helm will have the same weight as the head of employment during the year.
But Cook is not only one to get lost in the shadow of the iPhone. Noticeably absent from Apple invitation is any hint that the music might be involved. The invitation itself is a clever play on the iPhone icons that tell the recipient when and where the event, but it’s also a departure from the show on a musical instrument or something to assume that we will see players too.
Over the past few years, September was a time when we see new players, but the month is over, and now it seems unlikely that they will receive any fanfare of its own. Of course, it will not be big changes, given that there has been a general lack of IPod related rumors for the past six months, except for reports of the white model IPod touch and return the camcorder to the touch-screen version of the Ipod Nano.
Again, trying to predict that Apple, will do in the event, it is very difficult. While discussions on the iPhone, IOS 5 and iCloud are a sure bet there nobody knows when Cook pulled out “one more thing” at the end of the presentation.
In any case, CNET will be there to cover all the last second of the event, so do not forget to check back next Tuesday to see what Apple represents.
