Apple has announced it will be holding an iPhone-related event at its Cupertino headquarters in Califorinia next week.
The iPhone-maker emailed the invite, pictured below, to reporters in the US. The event is due to start at 10am PST on 4 October.
While the invite does not specifically refer to the iPhone 5 - saying only "Let's talk iPhone" - gadget punters everywhere will be hoping the event finally puts the many iPhone 5 rumours to bed.
Apple's invites typically include a clue to what will be unveiled. This invite appears to give little away - denoting only the date, time and place of its forthcoming iPhone event. At a stretch the missed call alert on the illustration - and the word "talk" in its text - could indicate voice calling is a focus. Or they could just mean Apple's going to talk about its new iPhone.
On the voice calling front the iPhone does have room for improvement. The current generation of Apple's iPhone - the iPhone 4 - suffered a setback shortly after launch when it emerged that holding the edges of the device could interfere with the signal reception and lead to calls being dropped. The problem - which became known as the 'iPhone deathgrip' and 'Antennagate' was down to the design of the antenna - running around the edges of the handset.
Apple responded by updating the iPhone's software and issuing iPhone 4 owners with free bumpers, saying that using the cases mitigated the reception issue.
