After very strong indications from usually accurate sources last week and this week, Apple has finally made it all official by issuing an invitation to journalists for an event to be held on October 4, as predicted yesterday, at its Cupertino, California headquarters, starting at 10:00 am PT. And just in case anyone is in any doubt as to what this event might be about, The Loop actually has a picture of the invitation, which features four app icons, three of which represent the date, time and location, and the fourth of which shows the phone icon! And if you still haven’t got it after that rather big clue, and the months of feverish speculation, then underneath the icons we have just one teasing little sentence: “Let’s talk iPhone.” So there we have it! Interesting that it doesn’t say iPhone 5, just “iPhone”. That might not mean anything of course, simply that Apple doesn’t want to give anything else away until the big reveal on October 4.
