CUPERTINO (KPIX 5) The mystery behind Apple s new product launch announcement on September 92 is deepening with the building of a secretive structure at the site of the planned announcement next month.
Security guards on Thursday were shooing people away from the three-story tall structure, which is wrapped completed in white.
Forklifts hauling huge wooden boxes and semi trucks were seen going in and out of the structure being built next to the Flint Center on the campus of De Anza College in Cupertino, just a few miles from Apple s headquarters.
The Flint Center, where late Apple CEO Steve Jobs first debuted the original Macintosh computer in 1984, seats 2,300 people a much bigger venue than the places Apple usually uses to show off its new products.
Amazing how it all started in Silicon Valley and it s crazy to think that this is where I m from, this is where Apple started, said De Anza College student Julie Du.
Apple is preparing for the big event in dramatic fashion.
Security is tight at De Anza College and guards are posted at every corner surrounding the venue.
The company s vague invitation, simply the date of the event printed with the words, wish we could say more only adds to the mystery.
There aren t a lot of hints in the invite about what we re going to see, said CNET Senior Writer Shara Tibken.
It was a little more coy than a lot of them have been.
Apple is expected to announce a new, larger iPhone at the September event and possibly a computerized watch.

WESTMINSTER, Colo. (CBS4) - A security guard who shot and killed a Westminster man this month will not face charges, the district attorney s office said Monday.
The guard, Gustav Ruppel, shot 24-year-old David Ludewig on Aug.
2 after a confrontation at the victim s apartment complex.
There is insufficient evidence to disprove that Mr. Ruppel was acting in self-defense, District Attorney Dave Young said in a letter to Westminster Police. Accordingly, we will not be filing criminal charges in this matter.
Witnesses said Ludewig, who had been drinking, was celebrating news his wife was pregnant.
Ruppel confronted him about urinating on a trash bin at approximately 1:30 a.m.
Ludewig entered his apartment and returned with an airsoft gun that fires pellets and allegedly aimed it at Ruppel, who then shot Ludewig.
