With just a few days to go until the debut of its next-generation iPhone, Apple is finishing preparations for the event at which the device will be unveiled.

Earlier this weekend, the street-facing facade of San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts was cloaked in a vast, colorful Apple banner. And, already, diligent Apple kremlinologists are analyzing it for hidden meanings.
