The tech giant reportedly sent out an invitation to members of the media with the date and the line: "By innovation only".

The event will be held at the Steve Jobs Theatre at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, California, and will start at 6pm (BST).

The invitation also featured a rainbow version of the Apple logo, suggesting that the new smartphone will be available in a wide variety of colours.

The company's CEO, Tim Cook, also hyped up the "fantastic products" they have in the works.

Whilst all eyes will be on the next iPhone, it's the 2020 phones that are set to benefit from the $4.2 billion research and development funding Tim Cook's firm has spent, with talk of better cameras and 5G.

It was recently reported that a high-speed 'iPhone 12' is being predicted for a 2020 release by trusted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

The TF International Securities employee is more often than not correct with his predictions for Apple's products and teased that the smartphone that can download HD videos in a matter of seconds could be in the pipeline over the next 12 months.

As reported by MacRumours, Kuo believes the new iPhone could come in 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch models with OLED displays and will carry 5G.
