Apple September 10 (iPhone keynote, Apple Town Hall banners 001)

Ahead of tomorrow’s iPhone keynote, which starts at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern, colorful banners have now gone up the facade of Apple’s Town Hall auditorium building in Cupertino, California. Watchful folks could point out that Apple typically holds its high-profile product unveilings at major venues like San Francisco’s Moscone West or Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

This time around, they’ve opted for a more intimate (and more controllable) setting at its own campus. The last time Town Hall was used was for the iPhone 4S introduction in October 2011. As yo can see yourself, the media event livery pictures the same colorful dots we first saw on Apple’s event invitation.

I’ve included more shots right after the break…

Check out the photos, shared by the French blog

The multi-colored dots on the banners match up those on the invite graphics.

Some kremlinologists have postulated before that the silver dots tip off the rumored iPhone 5S with silver-ringed, fingerprint-reading Home button.

If you spot other images online, or are around 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, California, be sure to give us a heads-up or just drop your photos on

We’re now less than 24 hours until the keynote, by the way.

Yes, it’s going to be double iPhone launch.

So, who’s excited?

    • Maxim∑

      I am way more than excited if you know what I mean

      • illK†Δ

        Not really

  • My Wasted Fantasy

    i know this may sound like a dumb question… but does this mean that iOS 7 is going to be release tomorrow? because if so, then i needa do a restore on my iPhone

    • Swifity

      To developers yes. But to the public, possibly around 18-20

    • Jonathan

      Why would you have to restore?

      • SkyFall

        He might have jailbroken his iPhone. If he indeed does then he has to restore first and update after.

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        Or like me he may currently be on iOS 7 and plan on restoring to 6.1.3/4 in hope of a jailbreak surfacing…

      • Om

        Aidan! you’re everywhere! It’s great to read your comments. 🙂

      • My Wasted Fantasy

        You are correct haha

      • Moi

        Bcuz he could be in ios 7 beta as an unregistered developer

      • Umut Bilgiç

        Unregistered developer .. Wtf 😀

    • Qasim Bashir

      I did that today to be safe just in case

    • Maxim∑

      iOS usually is released 1 week later to the public, the GM for iPhone and iPod will most likely be released tomorrow right after the event.

      iOS 7 for iPad might be delayed until October due to its 2 week late start, it all depends if Apple does a separate event for iPad

      • Moi

        Do you know why I think apple could release new iPhones side by side new iPads and iPods , bcuz in the invitation they said ” this should brighten ” everyone’s ” day , everyone could refer to every ios user meaning all iPhone , iPod and iPad users ….
        But I don’t really believe in this

      • Yunsar

        Ok but they’re not unveiling new iPods

      • Julian Gigola

        I think they’ll drop the iPod Touch’s price

    • Yunsar

      A few days after

  • veda99

    super excited! went to apple store to replace iPhone5 (power button issue) of the apple genius guy was talking about tomorrows event how excited he is!

      • Jonathan

  • Prasoon Singh

    Can’t wait! I’ll defiantly be watching the live event tomorrow!!

    • Moi

      How will u watch it live ?

      • Prasoon Singh

        Won’t it be up on Apple’s website?

      • Moi

        Apple hasn’t say anything about that , it mightn’t be on apple’s website

      • Core

        sometimes its live sometimes its not

      • Maxim∑

        yes it will be offically live streamed by apple

      • Prasoon Singh

        How do you know?

      • Maxim∑

        will not show up until the we are close the event

        also if you have a Apple TV you can watch it.
        The event is being hosted at Apple HQ so its usually live streamed there

      • Roboter

        If they wont strem it live (worstcase), I’ll go to Berlins Apple Store and watch it there 😛

  • funs

    10 am Pacific or 11 am Pacific??

    • Typo. 10am

      • funs

        ” Ahead of tomorrow’s iPhone keynote, which starts at 11am Pacific / 1pm Eastern ”
        I’ m confused!

      • Tom Brady

        They said its 10am pacific time why are you confused girl

      • Qasim Bashir

        Typo “The last time the Town Hall auditorium was used was for the iPhone 45S introduction in October 2011.”

        Iphone 45S

      • fixed

  • Brandon Miranda

    so i wnt be able to officially upgrade to ios 7 if im using a beta on an unregisterd device??

    • Moi

      You won’t be able so you better restore to 6 before its too late

      • funs

        False. OTA Update work

      • Maxim∑

        not true, last year in order to hit the final GM you needed to restore if your UDID was unregistered

      • Brandon Miranda

        wait yes or no cuz i put the beta on my parents phone so need to knw

      • Reed Kitchens

        Even if the OTA doesn’t work. Couldn’t you just back up the phone then restore it to the IOS 7 public release version then “restore from backup”? instead of restoring to IOS 6

      • Maxim∑

        yeah that would work to

  • Joseph A. Ahmad

    Great, I have my classes from 1:10 – 2:25 pm and 2:35 – 5:15 pm eastern time. That couldn’t have been any more inconvenient. I won’t look at iDB and I will completely cut myself off from the internet until I’ve seen the keynote, I want to be a little surprised at least. Maybe I’ll actually pay attention in class this tomorrow (sarcasm, I always do ha). But in all seriousness, this shall be great.

  • Marcus Daniel Houser

    ok ok ok, so I am in North East France, What time will it be released and is there a way for me to watch it online.

    • Adrien FRANCOIS

      The keynote will start at 7pm in France, no official report from apple about a live streaming yet…

  • Josh

    Can you guys hire an editor…?

    • Qasim Bashir

  • funs

    I have beta 6 on my iPhone, unregistered.

    • Qasim Bashir

      I was running ios 7 beta 6 unregistered too, but i downgraded to 6.1.3 just to avoid any problems, i suggest u do the same to be on the safe side

      • funs

        Thanks Qasim. Tomorow release iOS 7 GM or iOS 7 GA????

      • Qasim Bashir

        I doubt that tomorrow will be the ios 7 public release but i hope so, most probably it’ll be a GM for developers

  • Qasim Bashir

    I just hope they release iOS 7 tomorrow

    • Core

      they wont

      • funs

  • seyss

    Every keynote on that meeting room is known to not be as good as the ones on Moscone/etc.. so my expectations are low 🙁

    • FOFF

      YUP CAUSE ITS JUST AN S!!! folks need to accept that

  • thetomthebomb

    I just want ios 7!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Dave Becker

    Do I need to restore before the legit IOS 7 comes out even if my UDID is registered?

  • funs

    iOS 7 GM OTA update or manual update or nothing (without UDID)

  • Matthew

    Cannot wait.

  • Charlie Val


    • Tom Brady

  • n0ahcruz3
