Coming to us from the Japanese blog Kodawarisan is the speculation that Apple’s big event will take place Sept. 7.
As Ars Technica points out in its write-up of the report, that date wouldn’t be a big surprise, given that Apple’s fall iPod event has historically taken place in the middle of the first week of September for the past four years.
Then again, the iCloud announcement would dovetail nicely with the release of iOS 5, which in turn would be a perfect opportunity to introduce a new handset.
So, essentially, we’re back where we started and where we always stand with Apple. We won’t know for sure until they tell us.
