Apple Inc. continues to feed rumours that it will be launching the iPhone 5 on Sept 12 when they announced a media event for that date and hinted at the launch on Tuesday of this week. Invitations to the media displayed a shadow of the number 5 with the words “It’s almost here,” on it. The last time an iPhone model was released was in October 2011. There is also speculation that the company will announce a mini version of the iPad in late October.

I was even able to take over Facebook and Twitter accounts, again using just a UDI.”
