Apple has booked a large venue on the 22nd of June for an unspecified press event, prompting speculation that this will be date upon which the fourth iPhone is to be unveiled.
Apple will be holding an event at the Yerba Buena Centre for Arts (YBCA) in San Francisco. This is significant because Apple has used this same venue for the launch of the last three iPhones and the iPad.
Apple founder Steve Jobs has been a feature at the YBCA over the years for many major product announcements, although Gizmodo points out that so far the iPhone launches have taken place earlier in June.
In 2009, the iPhone 3G S was launched on June 8th, whilst the 3G debuted on the 9th back in 2008.
There is a chance that Apple is going to use the event to promote some other product or service which has yet to be mentioned.
However, given the string of rumours surrounding the arrival of the iPhone 4G, it would make sense for a June launch to be on the cards.
