Apple Setting The Stage for iPhone 5 Unveiling This Week

Apple is literally getting all dressed up for Wednesday’s much-anticipated iPhone 5 unveiling.

Over the weekend, Apple began the annual tradition of dressing up the entrance to the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco, California with bold and brightly colored banners to set the stage for its iPhone 5 introduction.

According to Apple Insider, the new banners “evoke the paint-splashed imagery the company used to launch new iPods in previous years at its fall Apple Events, formerly dedicated to its music products through 2010.”

Last week, Apple issued invitations to media for a company-sponsored event scheduled for this Wednesday, September 12th. At that time, Apple will take the covers off of the next generation iPhone.

The event’s invitation cleverly depicts the September 12th date casting the shadow of a large “5.” This indicates – naturally – that the new iPhone will be called the “iPhone 5.”

Most mobile industry analysts and market watchers believe that the 6th generation iPhone will deliver a bigger screen and 4G LTE connectivity.
