Apple iPhone 5 Event Set for Oct. 4

Apple officially announced its iPhone launch event, scheduled for Tuesday, October 4.

Apple has officially invited members of the media to an event on October 4 when the iPhone 5 announcement is expected. The event will be held at Apple’s Cupertino campus at 10am PT, and invite simply says “Let’s talk iPhone”, along with four iOS icons depicting the date, time and location of the venue. The October 4 date was first tipped last week by All Things D’s John Paczkowski, who reported that fresh Apple CEO Tim Cook would be hosting the iPhone 5 announcement after he took over the top job following Steve Jobs’ resignation in August.
