iPhone 5 and iPad Mini to be Announced on September 12th with iPhone 5 Release September 21st





iMore reports that they have heard that the next generation iPhone, new iPod nano, and all new 7.85" iPad mini will be announced on September 12th. They also pinpoint the actual launch date for the next iPhone as September 21, 2012.
Quote:
iMore has heard that Apple is planning to debut the new iPhone at a special event on Wednesday, September 12, 2012, with the release date to follow 9 days later on Friday, September 21. This information comes from sources who have proven accurate in the past.
The next-generation iPhone, which is frequently referred to as the "iPhone 5", is expected to have a taller 4" screen as shown in the above photo. Rumors have also suggested the inclusion of high speed LTE wireless networking.

While we generally refer to the next iPhone as the "iPhone 5", if Apple follows the example of their most recent iPad release, they may drop the numbering scheme with every new iPhone release. The 3rd generation iPad was simply called "the new iPad" in all press materials. Similarly, it seems likely that Apple will simply refer to the next iPhone as "the new iPhone".

While the 7.85" iPad mini has been long rumored, there has been a notable increase in the frequency and volume of rumors related to the product. The smaller iPad is believed to help Apple fill a cheaper price point in their tablet lineup.

iMore has been an accurate source of release date information in the past. They previously pinpointed the iPad 3 launch date as well as pre-order date for the iPhone 4S.

Sounds good to me. Won't need the smaller tablet though!

I predict: they continue the "iPhone (something)"-naming scheme.

No new iPod touch? Seems silly they'd discontinue their best selling iPod or even let it languish with that crappy A4 for another year.

"The new" is not part of the model name.

If the new iPhone looks like that, I'm not bothering. The iPad Mini though... Yes!

I didn't say it was. I think the original quotes are right. Apple did refer to it as "the new iPad" in all press materials.

Seems more a case of when not if now. I would have thought there would have been more part leaks by now though of the iPad mini, considering the number of iPhone part leaks. Maybe it's due to the factory they are being built in and less information is leaked from one manufacturer / workforce to the next.

It's the iPhone 6! Why isn't being report as such?! Once the numbering is taken off it should be numbered by generation and 6 is the appropriate code

The back to school-campaign ends Sept. 21, so this rumor absolutely makes some sense.

would you consider the 3GS a part of the 3 family? or the 4S part of the 4 family? so the 5 really could work and make sense

"iMore reports that they have heard that the next generation iPhone, new iPod nano, and all new 7.85" iPad mini will be announced on September 12th"

But no mention of a Touch. Since a Mini IS mentioned, I would say the Touch is EOL and will be feature frozen if still available.. Just as well since I was planning on getting a Mini instead of a Touch anyway. I love the Touch 3rd gen that I have but it doesn't have much of a niche anymore. As I said a year ago the number of used iPhones will reach a level that they will be the Touch replacement in many homes.

I loved reading that exact quote by forum members when the iPhone 4 was leaked. Funny thing is, those members ended up buying the iPhone 4 months later.

Moral of the story, don't judge until you see it in person (along with Apple announcing its new features).

Tim is probably pissed that everything leaked. We all know the internals will get a bump. I guess the only thing we don't know is, what will be that iPhone 5 gimmick that they claim the iPhone 4S can't run.

3GS: yes, because it's the third iPhone. iPhone 3G: no, it's not part of the 3-family because it's the second iPhone. iPhone 4S: no, I don't consider it part of the 4-family.

Im calling bulls**t on this as:

1. Is there even any events scheduled in for september with apple. Surely they would be booked by now (even if marked as generic event)
2. Still dont believe in the iPad mini (pointless size)
3. Everyone knew the ipad 3 release date

Can't wait to get one. I love my iPhone 4, but I'm getting the two year "I need a new phone" feeling again. I will be pre-ordering ASAP.

LTE, NFC and obviously all 4"-enhanced iPhone apps.
