CollegeHumor does its version of the iPhone 5 event

Apple’s media events, like the one for the iPhone 5 yesterday, have long been a source of fodder for parodies. They’re both distinct and recognizable, which always makes for easy mockery material.

CollegeHumor is the latest contributor to the category, as it recently posted a new video called “Apple Coasting Keynote.” In it, a Tim Cook-like character takes the stage and announces…nothing.

16GB iPhone 4S now just $99, 8GB iPhone 4 is free, 3GS is a goner

As we expected, Apple introduced some new price points for its current iPhone lineup alongside the new iPhone 5. As we just reported, Apple’s new handset starts at the usual $199.

This has effectively pushed all of the previous iPhone models down a peg on Apple’s list of smartphone models. The 3GS is gone, and the iPhone 4 is now available for free…

iPhone 5 has three microphones and an improved speaker design

Apple starts readying Yerba Buena Center for next week’s event

Earlier this week, Apple sent out media invitations to an event to be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco on September 12. It’s widely expected to unveil a new iPhone.

AT&T vacation blackout further confirms September iPhone launch

Apple has yet to make any kind of official announcement regarding when the next iPhone will be unveiled and become available, but we’re almost positive we know the dates. Apple is expected to debut the handset on September 12, and launch it in stores on September 21.

There’s already a mountain of evidence in favor of this timeline, such as reports from multiple credible sources and news outlets, and blacked out vacation dates for Verizon employees. But in case you needed any more proof, AT&T employees have just thrown their hats into the ring…

Thanks to leaked components and industry sources, it feels like we know just about everything there is to know about Apple’s new smartphone. We [think we] know what it looks like, and what new features it will have. But we haven’t heard much about its release date, until now.

A new report is out this evening claiming that Apple is planning to unveil the sixth-generation iPhone at a “special event” on Wednesday, September 12, and it’s expected to release the handset the following week. But that’s not all the Cupertino company has in store…
