Apple has erected the banners at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco for its upcoming September 12 media event, where the company is expected to announce the iPhone 5 and iOS 6, and judging from the images displayed, there could be some early clues on what to expect from the new smartphone.
The banners, which appear to be lines of colour, have given rise to speculation that they are in fact stretched app icons. A MacRumours’ forum post from ‘roosternugget‘ has reported that if you shrink the banner vertically, Apple iPhone app icons are visible.

The stretched banner may give further credence to a rumoured taller 4in iPhone display. Tune in on Thursday morning at 3am AEST for full coverage of the media event.
MacStories has a few images of the banner rising:
