In the past few weeks, pretty convincing photos of the rumored iPhone 5 have flooded the Internets, which is surprising since Apple used to be able to keep a tight lock on their secrets before they hold announcement events like this.

Apple has confirmed the worst kept secret about its forthcoming press conference – that it will take place next Wednesday, on the 12th September.

Widely anticipated to herald the launch of what is being tentatively called the iPhone 5, and presumably the previous model, the new iPhone will have to be renamed the non-so-new iPhone.

The press invite teases that the iPhone 5 will be the topic of the product launch, with the number 12 throwing a shadow in the shape of the number 5.

So the question is what will be updated? Well 9to5Mac believes that the iPod Nano and Shuffle are a sure bet, with the possibility of an iPod touch update; We must say an updated iPod touch would be pretty awesome.
