Apple has sent out invitations to the media to attend the iPhone 5 introduction on October 4. All it says is "Let's Talk iPhone", it shows app icons that reflect the date, the 10AM Pacific start time, its location at Apple's 1 Infinite Loop headquarters, and the phone focus. It's presumed, although not official, that the permanent CEO Tim Cook will lead the event. The iPhone 5's design could still go two ways, a total redesign with a larger screen and a thinner body, or the conservative route with an "iPhone 4S"-type model.
But, we should still see a dual-core A5 processor, an 8-megapixel camera, and quite possibly, 64GB of storage and a dual-mode CDMA/GSM chip. We should also see finished version of iOS 5 at the show, with Android-like notification bar and improved lock screen, true independence from a computer and cloud syncing through iCloud and iTunes Match. On top of this, Twitter integration, reminders and an improved camera app.
