In the strongest indication yet that Apple is ready to show the world a new-generation iPhone, tech blog iMore is reporting that the company is planning a special event for Wednesday, September 12, to unveil the iPhone 5 and a new iPad Mini. The iMore report also says the new iPhone will be available to consumers on September 21.

Of course, nobody from Apple has confirmed this report, which iMore claims comes “from sources who have proven accurate in the past.” Apple historically has held September media events, including 11 years ago when it debuted the iPod. It was last October, just before the death of founder Steve Jobs, that the company came out with the iPhone 4S.

So while the actual dates of September 12 and September 21 may not be set in stone, all indications are that an iPhone 5 – and perhaps the iPad Mini – are imminent. Rumors, images and videos of the next generation iPhone have been flying across the Internet in recent days.

Apple typically announces these kind of “special” meetings about two or three weeks in advance. So, if this iMore report is indeed true, expect official notification in the back half of August.

Stay tuned.
