SAN FRANCISCO -- Ahead of its much-anticipated news event next week, Apple is already preparing the inside and outside of the venue.
That event, which is widely expected to bring the next version of the company's iPhone, is being held in the theater at San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
Just as it's done with past events there, Apple has begun covering the front of the building with colorful window dressings. Where March's iPad event brought, this time around Apple has gone with a decidedly more controlled style with what look like ribbons of color.
CNET took a field trip down the street to snap a few shots of the venue getting all dressed up, which you can see in the slideshow below. There will be more to come as the adornment continues.
The event itself is next Wednesday and kicks off at 10 a.m. PT. CNET will be there to cover it live. Expect more details on that early next week.
Update at 2:17 p.m. PT: The outside is still getting wrapped up after a lunch break.
