And…. it’s official. Apple has just sent out invites to an October 4th event at their Cupertino, California campus, starting at 10am.

There’s not much else to go on right now, short of the confirmation, but we all know what’s coming next Tuesday: the new iPhone, whether the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, or both.

iDownloadBlog spots something cool:

Interestingly, the image that they use on the invites may provide a clue as to what we can see come October 4th at 10:00AM PST.

The image contains the right location (Maps app), the correct date (Calendar app), the correct time (Clock app), and one more little interesting tidbit…

Did your eagle eyes catch it? That’s right, a one (1) badge on the Phone app. Now of course, this could just be a coincidence, but seeing as everything else coincides with a real world fact, I think it’s highly probable that Apple just confirmed that we’ll only see one iPhone on October 4th.

Whichever iPhone is announced, it is expected that it will be released on October 14th in the United States, the UK, Germany, France and Japan.

Also likely to make an appearance is an updated iPod Touch. It’s also possible we’ll see other updates to the iPod line, but note that Apple is not calling this an iPod event. This is all iPhone. Anything else is just gravy.

Yesterday, it was rumored that Apple would also announce new iOS 5 features like Nuance voice control and Facebook integration at their October 4 conference.

Tim Cook is expected to host the event, but could Uncle Steve make an appearance? A small cameo, perhaps, just to shout “Bam!” one last time.

As usual, Cult of Mac will be live blogging the event, and immediately be updating our site with reactions and opinions. Stay tuned.
