Well, that ought to put an end to the rumor mill's endless speculation about the next iPhone's launch date—at least until we start hearing about the next next iPhone. As Reuters reports, Apple has sent out invitations to the press for a "special event" that will be held next Tuesday. The title of the event? "Let's talk iPhone."
We can take that as confirmation of a recent report by AllThingsD, which said Apple CEO Tim Cook would unveil the iPhone 5 at the company's headquarters on October 4. According to that story, the iPhone 5 won't be available straight away—rather, early adopters will have to wait until "a few weeks after the announcement."
An earlier post by Ars Technica also suggests that the iPhone 5 may be accompanied by a second device, the iPhone 4S, which could simply be a quicker version of the iPhone 4. We've seen all kinds of conflicting reports about the devices, though, which tells us that Apple is still doing a fairly good job of keeping a tight lid on its pre-release products, despite tremendous demand for leaks.
