Apple preparing for September 12th event

Apple preparing for September 12th event
It has become an annual event since 2007 with thousands of hours spent trying to guess what the next Apple iPhone will look like. With the size of the display expected to jump from 3.5 inches to 4 inches, and a thinner build with a two-tone backcover, this is the first time since the introduction of the Apple iPhone 3GS that a prototype model wasn't left in a bar. This year, our clues to the design of the new Apple iPhone 5 didn't come from the beer-soaked floor of a watering hole and instead came from mockup models used by case manufacturers to see how snug their rubber bumpers are fitting on the new model.

If the mockups are correct, what we will see inside  on Wednesday is a taller, thinner Apple iPhone with a 4 inch screen and a metal, two-tone backcover. The pin dock-connector will be smaller and the earphone jack is now on the bottom. We should see LTE connectivity, which may be greeted with a lawsuit from Samsung, and possibly support for NFC.

Meanwhile, you can see Apple's colors going up on the front of the building, reminding everyone that it is almost that time of the year for the introduction of the new iPhone.

How are they not innovative. I won't be getting this next iPhone by the way but apple is definetly innovative. Just because they put there products together with components made by other companies does not make them not. Every new product so far although not new concepts are revolutionary and have all changed the area that they are in very much like no other products. Is it because the next generation of these products are just improvements on the previous and not completely different. That's wrong. I am not an apple fan but they are revolutionary and they still seem to control were the markets that they have products in are headed. I love my iPad but because of my hatred of ios I will never be getting another I product. But innovative they are and like them or not they are still the company with the big target on there back and should be for at least a couple more years,

I am not saying Apple is not innovative because they are using other companies' parts. they are less innovative than they were before. you look at the Iphone 4s, is there any revolutionary features? No! it is just similar as Iphone 4. there will be amazing products to be announced but I doubt there will be any "revolutionary" things to be announced on that day

i didn't say they are not because they use other companies parts, there's no single company on earth that produce their own parts. the only innovative product was the first iphone (and i can argue also that it's not revolutionary, other companies were also developing touch screen products...). every iphone released after that is not innovative. there were phones with buttons to silent it immediately, there were phones with front facing camera (if you know, the first time apple put the front facing camera, fans were like wooooowww they have a front facng camera), etc etc etc, i can't think of a single apple product that is innovative. also, tablets are useless. they are big smartphones and just that. until this day, i can't find ONE reasonable reason to buy a tablet. so the ipad, just like any other android tablet is sh*t (i say android tablets, not windows tablets, because windows tablets could come with core i5 processors thus be productive...that's for the mean while untill oter tablets can be powerful enough...)

@aokde the same reason people hate on Stephen Elop for Nokia's sales figures, or the President of the U.S. for every little thing that goes wrong in their lives, or God (or whatever a non-atheist believes in) for them not being born famous and important trillionaires without a care in the world. He was the face of the company, and a seemingly crazed bipolar megalomaniac, but folks seem to think he alone came up with every single apple product, despite the evidence of hundreds if not thousands of apple designers and engineers (or paid plagarists and copy machines, however you wish to see it)

Apple invented metal back cover with 2 tones excellence and Apple patented hundreds of ideas that never make to the market.

I don't think you should be able to patent something you don't build. You should have a working prototype to get a patent. If I have a great idea but don't know how to mechanically make it happen, then you (w/o seeing my idea) come up with the same idea and build one yet are not allowed to bring it to point is the patent police is broken and is stopping innovation...IMO.

Um, HTC has had multi-tone metal-backed covers for years... Unibody design, too. Your argument is invalid.

I doubt they'll come up with something in the level of Nokia's superdownsampling Pureview tech but yeah, let's wait and see.

I don't expect Apple to show anything more than an extra row of icons.

I'm not even expecting that anymore. Allegedly leaked photos of the boxes indicate same number of icon rows

I hate to say it but there is no denying that Apple's "never apologize" policy and "reality distortion field" technique work wonders for them. one more row of icon and it is "The Greatest Event in Human History"
