IF it's really on Sept. 12.
Probably a production ramp.
Assuming Apple is announcing the next-generation iPhone that day and shipping about 9-10 days later, they need their contract manufacturers to accumulate enough inventory to support the launch (which will undoubtedly be limited to a handful of countries and supply will be tight anyhow).
The production ramp for an iPhone launch is probably about six weeks.
A secondary issue is likely the finalization of iOS 6. The iOS engineering team need to wrap up version 6.0.0 of the software which will be flashed on the finished hardware.
Apparently Samsung has an announcement event today or something...
Apple is just going to sent invitations even later, maybe like one week later so it would be Sep 5th.
Most Apple press event invitations are sent a week or so before the event. So I assume... September 6th is what they're waiting for.
I can't wait, and I can't wait for LTE!
Isn't google or Samsung having some sort of event on the 5th? I'd look for an official date from Apple then.
Ah! This is going to be the longest week EVAR!!!
A long three weeks. One week until invitations, another until the announcement, and a third until the actual launch.
Invitations go out 5-7 days before the event.
Yeah, I think I'll go find a cave and hibernate until then, lol.
Apple usually waits a week before the event date to send out invitations. So, they will most likely send out invitations on Sept. 5th.
Yeah, September 5th should be the day we see invites which is next Wednesday.
They typically wait until a week ahead of time, which makes me question who is in charge at Nokia and Motorola. Want to make sure your announcement gets left behind? Schedule a press conference on the day that Apple will almost certainly make an announcement that everyone knows is regarding an iPhone launch.
Those who don't learn from history...
...ask questions like this.
Thank god I have a break in my classes during the time the Keynote will be. I'll be able to stream it on campus even! Even if they aren't necessarily exciting all the time, I really enjoy being able to stream live events like this.
I believe they do not do live streams anymore. You'd have to use a feed from a gadget blog instead. However, things could change.
I thought they just didn't live stream special events. I can't remember what the last one I watched was.
THAT'S who it is, not google or samsung like I said earlier, my bad.
They will still announce their event at the same time they always do, and not any earlier just because rumors basically confirmed the date weeks ago.
Because theyll sell more iPhone 4 and 4s the longer they wait.
Exactly this ^
The seats for these events sell out immediately. We shouldn't be asking why they are waiting for. We should be asking what's the rush (as in why are they even giving us a week's notice)?
I do not understand this question one bit.
What are you asking?
My money is on 9/5 for the invites. But either way I'd say "next week" at this point. I am pretty eager myself. I'd like to truly see what this is all about- this is the first time I have felt hesitant to upgrade. I'm hoping they wow me on the 12th but if not there is always next year.
It'll be ready for preorder early this morning at 2am and sold out by 2:30am.
The last one was the Oct 2010 back to the Mac event, I think.
