The Loops reports that Apple has just sent out media invites for an upcoming media event scheduled for next week Wednesday, September 12. Apple’s event will be at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and is scheduled to begin at 10:00 AM Pacific / 1:00 PM Eastern. The tagline for the invitation is simply “It’s almost here.”
On September 12th, Apple is expected to reveal the next-generation iPhone and give a final preview of iOS 6 at the event. The rumored “iPad mini” is also nearing a launch, but rumors have suggested that Apple is planning a second media event for October to introduce that product. On the invitation, there’s a “5″ which would suggest that Apple’s next iPhone will indeed be called the iPhone 5.
Apple’s iPod lineup is also rumored to see an update at one of two events, while rumored iMac updates and the launch of a 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro are rumored to appear separately.
