Apple is planning to unveil its next iPhone at a special event on 12 September, alongside the iPad mini and new iPod nano.

That’s according to iMore, which claims that “sources who have proven accurate in the past,” have said that the iPhone 5 will be available to buy on September 21, but the widely speculated 7.85in iPad’s release date has not been specified, and the new iPod touch was not mentioned.

The report follows the earlier discovery of alleged iPhone 5 photographs, showing a device fully assembled from parts leaked from Chinese factories.

It is expected that Apple’s sixth-generation iPhone will be taller, with a larger display, smaller dock connector, and a two-tone metal back.
