Apple has begun prepping the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco for the iPhone 5’s grand unveiling on September 12. Now that the Cupertino company has sent out invitations for the much-anticipated event, it has started decorating the venue with its logo, while exterior banners are expected to go up later today.
These images, obtained by Andrew Stern, were sent to 9to5Mac, and they show that Apple’s preparations for the event are now well underway.
The star of next week’s show will, of course, be the iPhone 5, which is expected to get a larger 4-inch display, a thinner form factor, a new dock connector, LTE connectivity, and lots more. There has also been speculation suggesting Apple will use the event to announce new iPods. The changes of seeing an iPad mini, however, are slim. Instead, the device is expecting to get its own event later this year.
