Possibly the most exciting week, and for sure, the most exciting month in tech has just started. Apple’s iPhone 5 event is scheduled for September 12th at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.
As always, the invites for the special media event were sent out to a select few journalists and bloggers, who are expected to live blog from the event. The event will kickstart at 10am sharp in the morning with a keynote by the Apple CEO, Tim Cook. Click here to know the start time in your timezone.
Unlike the past, there have been many leaks regarding the new iPhone which look reliable to us. The new iPhone (or iPhone 5?) is expected to carry a bigger 4-inch screen with 16:9 display, while maintaining the rectangular design with rounded corners as we have seen in iPhone 4 & iPhone 4S. Other than that, we expect a faster (quad-core) processor, improved camera, NFC & possibly 4G LTE as well. The final version of iOS 6 will be announced as well.

Watch iPhone 5 event Live Streaming Online (#hope)
Let’s get this straight. Apple has always avoided to live stream their product launches and events on the web. The last time they live streamed an event was back in in September 2010 for the iPod music event, and then repeated that in October 2010 too. Then on, they went back to their strict self, by deciding not to webcast events live.
Now, just in case Apple & Tim Cook change their mind and decide to live stream iPhone 5 event online, then this is the link you need to bookmark:
Even if they don’t live stream the iPhone 5 event, expect them to upload the video right there, once the event ends on September 12th. Other possible live streaming links include Twit Live TV and CNET, though the chances of live keynote streaming are pretty slim. But these two are great links if you prefer a video coverage over live blogging.
Someone on UStream is claiming to livestream the iPhone 5 event here (embedded below), which, in all possibilities, is fake. But every single time, someone has managed to avoid the eagle eyes at Apple and unofficially stream the event live. We shall update such links right here, once we find them on September 12th.
