Looks like the new iPhone will make its debut next week.
Apple has invited the media to a Sept. 12 event with the notice “It’s almost here” and the big number 12, various media are reporting, including The Associated Press.
The event, which will begin at 1 p.m. Eastern time, will be held in San Francisco.
The Wall Street Journal reported last Friday that one of the new features will be a slimmer screen that integrates the touch screen with the LCD, thus eliminating the need for a separate touch screen layer.
According to CNET.com, the announcement about next week’s likely iPhone unveiling may confirm another recent rumor, which is that Apple will hold a separate event next month to debut a smaller version of the iPad.
Apple has been busy. While it preps for the new iPhone unveiling, it’s trying to cripple its biggest competitor, Samsung, by demanding that a federal court ban a ton of its phones and tablets from the U.S. market after Samsung lost a patent infringement lawsuit filed by the iPhone and iPad maker.
