Here it comes. Apple sent out invitations to a September 12th event today. The event takes place at 10 am PT at San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
As if there was any doubt about what the event was about, the invite contains the words "It's almost here." and the date (the 12th) casts a shadow that looks like a 5, as in iPhone 5.
We're expecting to see a new iPhone with a larger screen, LTE support, a new dock connector (let's hope that bit is wrong) and possibly a near ear bud design.
Still open to debate is whether or not Apple will also introduce a smaller form-factor iPad. A 7.85" iPad based on iPad 2 internals is widely rumored, but many sources anticipate it getting it's own launch event early next month.
