iphone-5-launch-display.jpgIt’s nearly here. After months of rumours, leaks, wish-lists and speculation, Apple are all set to unveil their iPhone 5 smartphone in the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco tonight. The event kicks off at 6pm (GMT), 10am (PT) and Tech Digest will have all the details as soon as they’re revealed.

Even now though, just hours away from launch, new details are trickling through, and for those who just can’t wait to order the iPhone 5 (regardless of whether or not it turns out to be made from cracker bread), it’s an interesting tidbit of info; Apple are said to be opening pre-order sales for the iPhone 5 this very week, on Friday 14 September.

As MacRumours note, the iPhone 4S pre-order sales opened the Friday following Apple’s launch announcement for the device, with the trend set to continue.

The site also claims that the staff for Apple’s online support centre is being bolstered in time for a significant spike this Friday.

With only a few hours left until the rumours become facts (or otherwise), we won’t have long to wait to check out what’s the real deal or not here. Check back to Tech Digest from 6pm onwards for all the iPhone 5 launch details, hopefully including specs, pricing, features and release dates.
