iPhone 5 Announcement to Be Held at Apple Campus on October 4

The mystery of the details of the iPhone 5 is only 9 days away from being resolved, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal’s All Things Digital, which claims that Apple will hold a media event on its Cupertino campus on October 4 for the announcement of the iPhone 5.

Apple holding the event on its headquarters comes as a surprising choice to some, as Apple historically has announced new iPhones at much larger venues like the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The Apple campus has been used mainly for minor product announcements and events like the Apple Hi-Fi and the public rebuttal to Antennagate, although it was also the site for the introduction of the iPhone SDK, which we’d call a historical event (probably the iPhone’s second most important event after the original iPhone reveal). The location of the announcement leads some to speculate that the iPhone 5 will not be a major product refresh but instead the rumored iPhone 4S that looks much like the previous version.
