October: Macbook Pro Retina 13, Mac Mini, iMac, iMac Retina.

This keeps the products in the same discussion. Sept 12th would be iOS devices. Oct would be OSX devices.

My other view:

Sept 12: iPhone, iPad Mini, iMac-R, MBPR13, iPod Touch, iPod Nano. (we can dream right)

"Initially the reports said that the Apple is set to release two iPad this year which is the iPad 3 which was released in march and iPad 4 in October.And moreover news from Digitimes said a Taiwnese component manufacturer confirmed this news by saying that iPad 4 was boosted up by adding killer applications to take on the various tablets scheduled in the second half of 2012."

I suppose we'll see.

You are not alone: https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0

I'm done with iMacs. I'm using CCFL backlit NEC displays from now on... I wish Apple would release an updated Mac Mini!

Whatever the schedule is not likely to launch both iPhone and iPad mini at the same event.

On what I've researched the iMac-r was close to be launched last June but due LCD panel issues Apple postposed it launch, same about rMBP13 what we could see is both rMBP13 and iMac-r(21) both launched the same day but this leaves few launches for October event where is more likely to see the mini- things.

They were quite quick to reduce the price of the original iPhone. It was launched at $600, a month later it was $400, and not long after it was $200, as I recall.

Well, considering tomorrow is the 1st of September, and we have no sign of any new 21.5" iMac and 13" Retina MacBook Pro, I think I'll ignore the rest of these predictions....

I don't think you're quite reading the chart right. The cutover for months is the vertical bar, not the dot and also, there's a big "estimated" at the top.

IE, the iMac and rMBP 13" are coming in September according to the chart, seeing as how tomorrow is only the first day in September, it's a bit early to dismiss it.

So if they had panel issues, wouldn't they have been resolved by THIS June?

The question is...will their be a 27" iMac and will it be R-Type. I hope they don't release the 21" then wait for the 27" a month later.

I'm betting that Apple will go the same route with the iMacs as they did with the MBPs in terms of retina panels. That is to say, I won't be surprised for them to introduce a high-end model with retina display whilst leaving the original line alone (spec bumps, of course).

Depending on what they are willing to cram inside, this may be the model that Tim Cook has referenced for pro users?

Just a thought.

I was looking at the regular 2012 macbook pros in the Apple store today and they of course had the shinny screen next to one that had the optional matte screen, and I was struck by how much better the matte one looked. Maybe it was all the bright lights in the store, but I can't understand why APple doesn't put these on all of their screens. It seems like a case of good ole Apple stubbornness.

I'm waiting for them to do the typical sept thing, show a new 5-6 inch iPod touch. Everyone goes 'oh okay so 3.5, 5, 8, 10. Cool' and the 8 never shows up. And yet there will be rumors about the issue causing the delay, just like the ones for the tv that will never happen

Those reports started like two days after the original iPad was announced and have repeated every year

Apple shouldn't design for a health problem in a minority of people though. If the mass of buyers want glossy, glossy it is.

I myself prefer glossy.

I read that rumor. Ordinarily I'd be ticked, but I've already given up on the upcoming iPhone & made other plans. I can easily wait until Apple builds something compelling.

If not is 2013, perhaps 2014 will be their year for a fresh new design.

No leak yet about r-iMac27 all info point to r-iMac21 core i7 only model, its LCD is being built by sharp, seems the retina and usb3 among updated mainboard are the only changes, still have CD/DVD.

I would like a 27" iMac with a 4k2k screen but seems no manufacturer interested to build such LCD and I consider close to impossible (if any practical) we will ever see a 5120x2880 lcd panel either on Apple or non Apple product.

Big 3 months coming up. Tight squeeze, but customers remember Apple roll outs. Impact on earnings may be more condensed to the upside next 2 quarters instead of next 3 quarters. Hard to really say at this point in time.


Since this squeeze is due to a parts shortage not much we can say.

Apple actually does "controlled leaks" like with the upcoming iPhone 5 so this could possibly be a "controlled leak" as well from apple but they used the analyst so it would seem that it's not coming directly from them (this is just a gut feel)

I think if apple did all the leaks, the would be evened out a bit more. Right now we pretty much seen everything of the iphone5, down to every little chip part. And not a single piece of anything else. I doubt this was planned

Just 8 weeks and we know if that timeline was accurate, but as almost always regarding Apple people are going to be disappointed.
I think it's just too much to be released within a 8 weeks span, on the other hand though it's just before the holiday season so Apple might have found a sweet spot after massive holiday sales last few years.

Majority of people? Who told you so? A while ago there was a poll by MacRumors, and the majority of people preferred matte.

And in any case, it is not a health problem. Not At all. I just hate to work with a mirror instead of a screen. I have no headaches because of that, never.

However, the point is to give people the freedom to choose, and not impose anything.

Fixed that for you.

And going with you hypothesis, this could also possibly not be a "controlled leak".
