The invitation is for the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater, where Apple holds larger launch events.

Apple didn’t provide any details on the new device. Various unconfirmed reports speak of a sharper screen and faster cellular broadband options.

It’s not known when such a new device would be available for sale. Last year, sales of the iPad 2 began in the US nine days after the announcement.
