Next week’s iPhone event likely to include more details on iTunes Radio, TechCrunch thinks

Apple has sent invitations for the rumored September 10 press event (so it’s now official) to introduce the latest iPhone. TechCrunch believes that since the new mobile operating system, iOS 7, is due to arrive around September 20 or so, Apple will likely include more details about iTunes Radio as well.

We reported in August that that the iTunes Radio launch would happen in September, along with several large advertising campaigns purchased by Pepsi, Nissan, and other blue-chip advertisers (see RAIN here. See more of our iTunes Radio coverage here).

Tuesday’s event will take place at the Apple Campus in Cupertino. The invitations include the tagline “This should brighten everyone’s day,” along with a series of various colored dots under a white Apple logo. Apple is rumored to unveil  different color casings for the new phones, or at least a gold color, for what will possibly be called the iPhone 5S. A lower-cost phone, the iPhone 5C, is also likely.
