I am in shock. Â For quite some time now I was absolutely certain that Apple would send out invites today for a September 21 event. Â Clearly I was wrong. Predicting Apple’s events in the past has been much simpler, this year no one knows what is going on.
What I do know is this: without invites being sent today, the event will take place no sooner than Thursday the 22nd, because Apple always gives a week notice beforehand. Â However, events favor Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so does this mean that invites won’t be sent until next Wednesday, 9/21, with an event to follow on the 28th? Â I really hope not. Â If that is the case, I wouldn’t expect an iPhone 5 launch before October 14. Â Unless Apple switches it up and releases the phone only a week and a half after the event (wishful thinking), not two and a half like with the iPhone 4. October 7 no longer sounds likely.
Fanboys, it’s not time to feel crushed just yet. Â You are not the only ones anticipating an iPhone 5 soon. Â Actually, major phone case maker Otterbox is very excited for the next iPhone to launch. Â They even have an ad for it! Â Now hold on to your last ounce of patience and wait on the edge of your seat for Apple to send those precious invitations soon.
