According to tipsters speaking to AllThingsD's John Paczkowski, Apple's allegedly planning on making its big iPhone 5 announcement at an event on October 4. But contrary to previous announcement events, you won't be seeing Apple executives strutting around the stage at San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. According to Paczkowski's sources, Apple's moved the big iPhone announcement to its main campus.
There's no indication as to why the event moved. The reasoning could be as innocuous as the fact that the Yerba Center might already have been booked with another event on October 4. Or, for that matter, Apple might not have exactly known when it was going to be able to produce its iPhone announcement and, thus, hosting the event on its own campus affords the company additional flexibility (and additional time to pick the date).
As Steve Jobs puts it in this video, Apple has grown like a weed. With the popularity of Mac computers, and the recent rise of iOS devices, the company has been having to lease buildings outside of their main campus just to fit everyone in. Now it looks like they are ready to converage again, and they wanna do so in typical Apple style. In the video above, Steve Jobs presents the new concept for a monstrous Apple campus, the center of which is a single building that can hold 13,000 people.
