Are you ready for the next iPhone?

iMore report­ed this morn­ing that Apple will hold its next media event on Sep­tem­ber 12th and launch the new iPhone along­side the rumored iPad mini on Fri­day the 21st. Anoth­er report said today that Apple is plan­ning to launch mul­ti­ple new prod­ucts in Sep­tem­ber, and now AllTh­ingsD con­firms that Apple will indeed hold an event on Sep­tem­ber 12th. Although Apple hasn’t offi­cial­ly com­ment­ed, AllTh­ingsD’s word is pret­ty much con­sid­ered to be a con­fir­ma­tion.

What will Apple announce in two months? Rumors say we’ll see the next iPhone, new iPod touch, and iPad mini. Judg­ing by Apple’s huge spike in com­po­nent orders over­seas, it looks this this fall is going to be a very busy time for the folks in Cuper­ti­no.

Apple hasn’t yet offi­cial­ly announced the fall event at which it is expect­ed to debut the next iter­a­tion of the iPhone, but it’s def­i­nite­ly plan­ning one.

Sources tell AllTh­ingsD that Apple is cur­rent­ly plan­ning an event for that week. And while we haven’t yet con­firmed its focus, his­to­ry sug­gests it will indeed be the new iPhone. One thing’s for cer­tain, though: Apple is ramp­ing up for a big fall prod­uct cycle. And to see that, you need only look at the the recent spike in the com­pa­ny’s pre­pay­ment for inven­to­ry com­po­nents

Apple’s pre­pay­ment for its inven­to­ry’s mobile com­po­nents rose by a sig­nif­i­cant $1.15 bil­lion last quar­ter, indi­cat­ing that fac­to­ries over­seas are get­ting ready to churn out mil­lions of iPhones, iPods, and iPads this hol­i­day sea­son. Inter­est­ing­ly, this last quar­ter marks Apple’s biggest increase in com­po­nent pre­pay­ments for the past 4 years. Get ready for a crazy fall.
