Someone should save all the quotes, and look them up when these members talk about their new iPhones later. Would be fun, however, too much effort.

iLounge is pretty much backing everything in this story and has even more tidbits:

I'd put iLounge up there with the WSJ for reliability.

Like the new "MacBook Air". We all know "the new" didn't belong in the quotes though :

the new MacBook Air press material

The press material mentionning "the new" still doesn't make it part of the model name. On Apple's site, their boxes, it's just plain iPad. And that is also "press material" if you ask me.

Anyway, do what you like, it's your site.

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.
No need for a touch when the iPad mini is here.

Wow, those are specific dates. Couldn't they be realistic and throw an 'around' or 'about' in there somewhere?

The next iPhone, the iPad Mini . . .

I'll take one of each, please.

When they decide to hold the press conference in Cupertino, they don't have to book any venue. They know the press will jump easily and happily with a week's notice to come to Cupertino to see what they have.

Yes to iPhone 5, NO to iPad 7.85", well then again I guess they can price it at £300 plus if they want and change the entire iPod business plan?

I'm gonna have to do some money trickery to get mine though as I want the 32GB, and my car needs new tyres plus it's first MOT and a service in September! Yikes!! But luckily I can most likely get £200 plus for my iPhone 4 still

Given the popularity of the iPod nano as a watch, I'm hoping Apple at some point will give the nano smartwatch capability allowing it to connect via bluetooth to your iPhone. But with the lack of any rumors to that effect, I doubt it happens this time around. Giving the nano smartwatch capability would be very easy for Apple to do and would be extremely popular I think.

But the iPhone 4 was a great design, I'm not sure why some people ever disliked it. This new one isn't as good, it's a step back - if indeed it is real.

That's why I'm excited to upgrade. I have an LTE hotspot right now and the speeds are just unbelievable.

(Now, I know there's a whole contingent of people who suggest that LTE is useless because of fixed data caps. That's absurd. Not all of us are looking for faster speeds because we need to stream movies or download absurdly large files. I do a lot of work on the road. The decreased latency and faster speeds of LTE make a huge difference in my productivity when I'm not in my office.)

In the past they have usually announced updated iPod models in the September month.

This apparent "iPad mini" Is most likely an updated iPod Touch with more features.

Apple wouldn't need to book any places either as they have held a number of Apple events at the Apple town hall, which is on the Apple Campus itself.

Two Thoughts:

(1) Tim Cook recently said "Apple is doubling-down on privacy." It would be quite funny to learn that this is a controlled leak of misinformation. In a way, I hope it is. I think he's doing a good job. I'd get a kick out of this being part of the doubling-down on privacy.

(2) Regardless of whether this is true, this is going to decimate iPhone sales and some iPad sales for the next month and a half.

Wrong. It doesn't sound like the "iPad mini" is small enough to fit in a pocket. I use my Touch everyday. And have no desire to use my 4s in its place once it dies.

Besides, a mini iPad already exists... The Touch.
