Staff prep Yerba Buena Center for Sept. 12 iPhone event [U]

Only few days left before iPhone 5 reveal

[Updated with new pictures] Workers at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco are already putting up decorations for Apple's September 12 press event, photos show. Banners have been hung on walls inside the building. Exterior decorations are now visible, as was suggested by the presence of cherry-pickers outside the center on Friday evening.

A sharp-eyed reader has noted that the color background in the large display at the front of the building is made of popular iOS icons stretched to an extreme degree vertically. This could be a subtle hint that the new iPhone's display will be "stretched" to be larger vertically rather than wider, which falls in line with part leaks and other reports.

Even at this stage, much of what Apple has in store for the event is unconfirmed. The iPhone 5 is expected be announced, with features such as taller display, LTE compatibility, and a smaller dock connector port. Apple also typically announces several products at its fall showcases, and may do so on Wednesday with news such as updates to the iPod lineup and a new version of iTunes. Rumors have died down that Apple will launch an iPad mini next Wednesday, but Apple may be planning to launch it in October instead.
