Apple has sent out the invitations for the upcoming event, scheduled for September 12 and is widely expected to be launch of iPhone 5.

Apple Inc comes come out with a new iPhone each year, and that's likely to continue. The new model is expected to work with fourth-generation, or 4G, cellular networks that phone companies have been building. That capability is something the S III and many other iPhone rivals already have. A bigger iPhone screen is also possible.

Apple will host an event in San Francisco. The topic wasn't disclosed, but the email invitation contains a shadow in the shape of a "5" - a sign that the iPhone 5 is coming. Sales usually begin a week or two after such an announcement.

Apple plans to update its phone software this fall and will ditch Google's mapping service for its own, as a rivalry between the two companies intensify.

As Apple gears up to release the next iPhone, its competitors are on a launch spree to meet up the attentions iPhone would grab. Nokia and Motorola have unveiled five new smartphones between them, while Amazon is expected to announce a new Kindle Fire this week.
