Apple Sets A Date For Next iPhone: September 10th At Company's Headquarters

The fall product launch season is officially underway, and yes, that'll soon include Apple. Despite having a fairly quiet launch year compared to 2012, Apple is due a new iPhone. Or, if you believe the rumors, a couple of new iPhones. While it doesn't feel as if very much remains a secret, Apple has confirmed that it is holding a special event on September 10. Instead of hosting it at Moscone West in San Francisco, the event will be held in Apple's backyard, down in Cupertino, Calif.

Historians may remember that the previous "S" phone, the iPhone 4S, was also launched on Apple's campus, leading us to believe that an iPhone 5S is en route soon. Rumor has it that an iPhone 5C will also make its debut, and if we had to guess, we'd say it'll ship in a variety of colors -- perhaps the same colors as the dots on this invite.

Strangely, there are a few unfilled dots, which could certainly be hints of a fingerprint-sensor-enabled Home button. We've got a week until we find out for sure.
