Apple Sends Out Invitations To October 4 Media Event

At least one rumor turned out to be true so far. Apple Insider received an invitation to Apple’s press conference on Tuesday, Oct. 4. The invite was decorated with icons of a clock, the date, a map and a phone with the tagline “Let’s talk iPhone.”

So it’s official, October 4th will be the date when we find out what other iPhone rumors are true. One thing we know for sure; the iPhone 5 will not be released in August or September like some tech blogs claimed.

The biggest question that still remains is what will CEO Tim Cook actually be announcing? A redesigned iPhone 5, a revamped version of the iPhone 4, or both?

Other questions that will be answered: Will Sprint or T-Mobile be joining the Apple family? Will Steve Jobs make a cameo after stepping down? Will the iPhone 5 even be available in 2011, and what are the actual specifications?

The event is being held at Apple’s Cupertino, California campus at 10 a.m..

On Tuesday, Mashable announced Facebook will also launch their iPad app at the event… But an already leaked Facebook app hardly seems as exciting as the next generation iPhone.
