We are only a few days away now from the event that Apple is widely expected to showcase the next version of the iPhone, and leading up to the official announcement of the device we have had months of rumours and speculation about the upcoming smartphone. Now the banners have gone up for the Apple event in a few days time that possibly hint at the iPhone 5 specs.
The guys over at MacRumors are reporting in an article that Apple has finished getting the outside of the Yerba Buena center in San Francisco ready for the special event on September 12th. This is where it is widely believed that the fruit based company will be officially showing off the latest iPhone to the world for the first time.
Initial glances at the decorations put up by Apple doesn’t seem to show any indications to what is about to be announced, but the company in the past has a history of hiding subtle clues about the upcoming hardware to be announced. Now an eagle eyed MacRumors reader has spotted what is believed to be stretched iOS icons that include iTunes, App and Music Store, and Game Center.
The image courtesy of MacRumors can be seen below and after playing around with it the site verified the reader’s findings, and found several icons that were clearly recognizable in their un-stretched form.
This could tie in with previous rumours that have suggested Apple would be releasing an iPhone with a larger display, which would be increased to four inches measured diagonally across the screen. It is thought Apple has achieved this by making the handset taller than the current iPhone model.
As always this has to be taken with a pinch of salt and it could quite simply be Apple playing a trick on everyone. We have heard recently that the company could be revealing a new iPad mini at the event along with a refresh to its iPod range, but it’s the iPhone 5 that many people are looking forward to.
Do you think Apple is just playing a trick on people with its banners?
