Apple could answer many questions on October 4

apple, iphone, ios 5


All signs are now pointing to the fact that Apple is getting set to hold a press event on October 4. In typical fashion, the company is keeping quiet on the nature of the event, any information that will be divulged on that date, or even if that is in fact the correct day.

Still, with anticipation reaching a crescendo as consumers, industry experts and pundits alike try to decipher what Apple has in store, a recent eWeek report pointed that we could learn a lot about the future of the company on October 4. That is, of course, if an event is being held then.

"Although details on the expected event are somewhat slim right now, the company will likely unveil its next-generation smartphone and show off why it believes the device will be the smartest mobile phone purchase that consumers and even enterprise users can make this year," the eWeek report stated.

In addition to finally getting some information on the next iPhone, eWeek also predicted that Apple will most certainly discuss the latest version of its mobile operating system - iOS 5 - as well as the future of its cloud computing offering iCloud.

Apple's venture into the cloud market was introduced at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this year. However, the iCloud service remains unavailable to the general public. So far, only developers have gotten their hands on it, according to the report.

However, eWeek noted that Apple has said that iCloud would be available sometime during the fall, putting it right on track for an announcement on October 4.

Any news released by the company would almost certainly include iOS 5, eWeek believes. The OS has been in development for sometime and has already been released to the masses for testing. As a matter of fact, the release of the iPhone 5 is seemingly the only thing holding back the release of iOS 5.

And that's really what everybody is waiting for. Even just a sliver of news about the next-generation iPhone would please the masses, as the rumor mill has been churning for months. That could all pay off just a few short weeks from now.

One thing is for sure, the demand for Apple's devices is hardly waning in the wake of Steve Jobs' resignation and the continued delay of the iPhone 5's release. According to a recent ChangeWave Research poll, 89 percent of Americans said Jobs' status has had no effect on their desire for an Apple device.
