Apple sent out multiple invitations to a showcase at its headquarters in Cupertino, California, which it says will give people an "advance preview of what we're currently building".

Even though some opinion that the company is working on a completly new handset, the invitation – which directly mentions iPhone's operating system – appears to indicate that next week Tuesday's event will largely focus on upgrades to the software that run the device.

The first iPhone was released in June 2007, and the handset went on sale in the UK later that year in November. It was swiftly followed up last summer by a new model, called the iPhone 3G, featuring a newer design, GPS and a larger memory.

IphoneLast year the company unveiled its software developer's kit(SDK) – which enabled people to create applications for the handset.

Either way, whatever the results of next week's preview happens to be, it will mark just the latest significant change to the iPhone since it was first announced back in 2007.
