After iMore broke the September iPhone event news, Apple, through its channels, confirmed to not one, not two, three, or four, but at least five different publications that the iPhone event would be Sept. 12 with a Sept. 21 launch.

In related news, Bloomberg reports that an Analyst says Apple will split its stock so it can join the Dow Jones Industrials—something that has always been on the top of Apple’s priorities list. Sound familiar?

Joining in, the NYTimes suggests that Apple buy US Carrier Sprint, RIM, Twitter and Path.
