Inventory system shows iPhone 5 accessories hitting stores on September 21st

Apple has officially scheduled a media event of September 12th – this is when we’ll probably see the next-generation iPhone. The invite showed a massive number 12, which indicates the date, plus a shadow of the number 5, potentially revealing that it’ll be called the “iPhone 5.”

When Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, takes the stage he’ll probably declare that the new iPhone will be available for sale on September 21st – this is still a rumoured date. A screenshot we received from a retailers inventory system shows accessory maker iShieldz coming out with a iPhone 5 screen protector on the 21st. The docs says “ISHDZ IP5 SCR PRO” for $22.99 with the ETA of September 21st.

Taking a note from the Apple media invitation: “It’s almost here.”
(Thanks tipster!)

      Hey smrt guy.
      Have you ever used a GUI based POS system? I’ll take the fugly DOS looking system any day over those flashy POS POS systems.

      Function over fashion my friend. At least when the old POS systems go down, you smack it with a hammer and it works. The new ones cause you to wait for 3 hours as some d**k bag from the support company decides to finally wander in to fix your s**t.

      Yes, yes I am angry/bitter.

  • superfly

    Can’t wait…….the 12th is the death of the iPhone and the 21st it’s the actual funeral. Gotta make sure my best black clothing is washed and ironed.

    I dislike the iPhone, and I detest the way Apple does business. But I dont want them to go away completly. I do kind of hope their launch is a bit lackluster, to put them in their places. But there is definitely a place in the market for them, and for RIM, if RIM an come out with an OS people like. Competition is good.

  • Jon

    This is from the Source. I used to work for them

  • TheMan

    I work for Source… IMO the POS is functional and quick compared to other retailers.

    • Blah

      Really all the negativity on the POS at the source… What about each and everyone of you take the time and try and learn it. It is a good system. And why take the time to bash a company system when it works!!! Get a life people!!!!

  • Wiz

    LOL, I used to work at the SourcebyCircuit City. I know this damn POS screen

  • LeafsFan77

    The whole “Double down on security” is really working for Apple.

  • som

    Crap.

    • some guy

      I feel you should elaborate.
      Are these feelings negative? Positive?

      Are these feelings directed at the above image? Or perhaps directed towards your deep seeded emotional trauma caused after that night in Amsterdam with the pre-op Bulgarian transvestite and Irish Wolfhound?

      Please, do elaborate. I look forward to your gems of wisdom each day.

    This isn’t even news, but I guess with all the goolge/android stuff the writers are reporting they got to squeeze in a little time for apple! We know they are going to launch a new phone soon….its just not magical anymore…taking functions that already exist and repackaging!

  • BB

    broken glass everywhere, wave you broken iphone like you just don’t care!!!!

    • some guy

      HEEyyyyy, HOOoooooo, HEEyyyyy, HOOooooo.

  • MattyMattMatt

    I like how a third of the comments are about our POS… it works, they just need to listen to our recommendations for it more. This style of POS is better than the GUI heavy fancy looking s**t as it can run on older hardware no problem.

  • MattyMattMatt

    The tipster should know this… but we have a lot of iphone 5 items listed, but most of them have an eta of early september… The ETA is just some monkey hitting numbers.

  • Matt p

    lol the source. awesome pos once you know how to use it

  • Pat

    The adaptor cable will be the money maker…
