iPhone 5 Event Will Be In Cupertino

iPhone 5 event on Oct. 4 will take place at the company’s Cupertino campus, not in San Francisco where all the previous iPhones and iPads have been announced.

According to sources close to the company,” the world’s first look at the newest iPhones will be at Apple’s Town Hall Auditorium, rather than the customary Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) or as part of Macworld or WWDC at San Francisco’sMoscone Center.

The reasons for such a change in venue are merely speculative. All Things Dspeculates that perhaps the new Apple CEO Tim Cook doesn’t care for the cavernous YBCA, instead opting for a more familiar, smaller and intimate venue closer to home. Maybe the Wi-Fi or cellular data bandwidth is more reliable on the Cupertino campus, allowing Apple to better demonstrate its wares and us media types to more effectively broadcast our still photos and live blogs of the event.

With the new leadership of CEO Cook, there are bound to be some changes in the Apple way of introducing products. For instance, we can fantasize about a live streaming video feed of the event, not superseding any of the live and sometimes entertaining comments from various bloggers, but enhancing them with a live visual record for all to see.

One thing’s for sure: Apple’s fabled secrecy remains intact, assuring billions of dollars’ worth of free publicity leading up to the event.
