We’re all waiting for the imminent announcement of a new iPhone, new iPods and probably “One more thing…” right now. And if reports are correct, we might not be waiting much longer.

A Japanese site going by the name of Kodawarisan says that Apple will be holding a media event as soon as September 7th — that’s less than a month away…

September has been the month for new iPod announcements for the past three years, and with iOS 5 slated for a release in the same month, this particular rumor does indeed make sense. Possible iPhone 5 release dates have ranged from late September to mid October, which again fits in well with an early September announcement.

According to MacRumors, Kodawarisan has had good success in the past, with the Japanese site successfully predicting the launch of a new Mac Mini back in 2009.

We at iDownloadBlog have very little experience with the Japanese site, so even with the numbers adding up, we’re willing to take this with a sizeable pinch of salt.

    updated probably not:

    “But sources have now flatly denied to the well-connected Jim Dalrymple of The Loop that any such media event will take place on that date.
    Reports began to surface yesterday that Apple would hold a special event on September 7 to launch the new iPhone, but that’s not happening.

    According to my sources, Apple will not have an event or launch the next iPhone on September 7. It’s hard to say how that specific date was chosen by the sites that started the rumor, other than it fits into the timeline of previous Apple events.
    Dalrymple is known to have solid sources at Apple, and has occasionally appeared to be an unofficial outlet for the debunking of rumor claims.”
