Apple has sent our invitations to a press event on Tuesday October 4th bearing the following simple message: Let’s talk iPhone.

Immediately the words rocketed to become the top trending keywords on Twitter worldwide, as Apple fans across the world voiced their excitement.

Others, however, have anticipated a radically altered design, with an ergonomically tapered profile.

Should the iPhone 5 see a press unveiling next week, it is likely to hit shops in a matter of weeks, though the Telegraphs’s tech columnist, Shane Richmond, has predicted the date of October 21st.
