Apple's highly anticipated iPhone 5 is expected to be unveiled at a recently announced event in San Francisco on 12 September, with Apple leaving a number of clues about the device's imminent launch.

 
The Cupertino, California-based company sent out invitations to the showcase next week, with the words “It's almost here” hinting at the latest iPhone. If that is too ambiguous, however, a shadow of the number five could be seen in the picture, all but confirming what is planned for the event.
 
The iPhone 5 is expected to feature a larger screen, four inches in size compared to the current 3.5-inch models. This is widely seen as a response to rivals like Samsung making smartphones with bigger screens.
 
 
Other features are under wraps for now, but we can likely expect a number of tweaks to the iOS software, many of which will probably mirror similar changes to the Mac operating system in recent months. The iPhone 4S featured Siri as a major selling point – Passbook, unveiled at WWDC 2012, is likely to be a major one for the iPhone 5.
 
As for the name, the latest Apple smartphone may simply be called “the new iPhone” if the company follows suit with its change in naming policy after the release of the new iPad earlier this year, but this may prove confusing for some customers, given how many previous models have been released, and the fact that an even newer iPhone next year will just cause more naming hassle.
