Apple has officially scheduled a press event to unveil the next generation iPhone(s) on October 4th at their headquarters in Cupertino, California.
Apple sent out invitations today with a photo of four app icons and three words “Let’s talk iPhone.” One icon has the date of the event, another has the time the event starts, there’s a map icon with interstate 280 (the location) and a phone icon indicating the subject of the event.
Apple is rumored to roll out iOS 5 on October 12 and the new iPhone is expected to go on sale starting October 14th. One of the key features with iOS 5 for iPad 2 users is AirPlay Mirroring. When have been using AirPlay Mirroring for a few months now and it’s a feature Apple TV users are going to love.
AirPlay Mirroring makes every app and everything you do on your iPad AirPlay compatible. In our testing AirPlay Mirroring worked extremely well. The iPad’s screen can be mirrored to an HDTV wirelessly through Apple TV. The mirrored content is displayed in 720p with little to no hesitation.
It’s possible that the new iPhone to be released on October 4th will have AirPlay Mirroring as well. If that is the case, the iPhone 5 could help to increase Apple TV sales.
Some other key features expected for the new iPhone include; increased speed, improved screen and camera, voice recognition and more carriers.
