While Apple's media event where it will reportedly introduce the iPhone 5 is still five days away, the company has already begun making preparations at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco where the event will be held. Last night, 9to5Mac shared a photos of some internal preparations in the lobby of the theater, and now MacStories posts photos taken by Steve Streza showing that the exterior graphics have begun going up on the theater. Apple typically posts large, colorful graphics signifying its events at the site.

Bright, rich color = brighter display with better color accuracy like that of the iPad 3? That'd be awesome! Deeper blacks, and whiter whites would be great! :D Always hated how "white" the black on the iPhone 4 looks.

those colors for some reason remind me of the days when you had to switch the Windows color pallet to 256 colors for certain applications to run properly...Ah, those were the days...

this is proof! the iPhone will come in multiple colors! green iPhones will be the fastest! (but ironically, get the worst battery life)

There sure are a lot of colors there for an announcement of a piece of hardware that comes in only black or white. What else is coming?

Only way you'll get better contrast is with OLED. It's right up there with things like Adobe Flash on iOS and Blu-Ray: Things Apple will never use.
