With Apple’s big press event set for September 10th, the company has yet to send out a single invitation. It is widely believed that the next iPhone event will bring the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. If Apple holds to previous patterns, these devices would launch on September 20th.
The devices are being anticipated all over the world, with the international papers reporting almost one and the same assumptions and expectations. The news from Japanese Nikkei read the following:
“It is expected for the new iPhone Apple is developing, be on Friday the 20th September release date in Japan. Formal presentation is scheduled to be held in San Francisco on the 10th as previously reported.”
Greek media claims the same, and this is not surprising at all, as usually blogs break stories, newspapers report them, and bloggers cite the reports – that’s how today’s media works. In this circle, it’s getting hard to tell what's new, what independent corroboration is, and what's just more noise to drown out what little signal is left, when stories go viral and cross nations and languages.
However, there is a chance that Nikkei did indeed get well sourced information that Apple's retail channel and partners in Japan are preparing for launch on September 20. So if true, it seems Apple's sticking with their traditional timelines!
