It’s pretty much a sure thing that Apple will be announcing the release of the new, highly anticipates iPhone 5 on September 12, 2012 in San Fransisco.

Apple will host an event in the town of hippies and love next Wednesday. The topic wasn’t disclosed, but the email invitation contains a shadow in the shape of a “5”, a sign that the iPhone 5 is coming. Sweet!

Another very close Verizon source confirmed that the countries largest cellular telephone provider announced an all-staff vacation blackout from the above date till the 30th, also stating the release date is indeed the 21st.

Why would Apple release it’s most anticipated iPhone to date in September… not the usual October?

Well, one reason is that last month, Samsung S III topped the iPhone 4S as the top-selling smartphone in the U.S. but Apple will regain the lead once the 21st rolls around.

It is also rumors that an all new iPad mini will be revealed sporting a screen right around 7-8 inches.
