    Depends on the day, but usually I live all over.

    I'm going crazy waiting this thing, lol. What are your guesses on a real release date? I'm thinking November 1st with preorders starting the last week of October.
    .... or if the way off chance Apple does an October event, they could announce the exact date then.

    End of November. My impression based on my foggy memory of previous announcements and product release dates is that Apple has generally announced a month for release, and then released near the end of that month.

    I hope I'm wrong, though, and that we get an early November release. Now that the Apple Pencil is an announced product, writing with my fat-tipped styluses becomes increasingly unbearable with each passing day...

    Apple most likely has another keynote ready for next month for Mac announcements (Macbook Air, Macbook pro..etc) Apple will also announce the Apple TV release date and the iPad Pro pre-order date and launch date.

    Apple likes to release on Friday. 4 Friday's in November. 6, 13, 20, 27. The 27th is Black Friday so I doubt they will release that day, and the 20th might be too close to Thanksgiving. So I'd guess the 6th or 13th.

    They are most definitely not doing an October event. They would not a hold an event for Mac spec bumps and release date announcements.

    If there was going to be an October event, the iPad Pro would not have been announced in September.

    Apple has typically never released a product without announcing launch dates/ pre-order date in a keynote.

    I bet pre-orders on the 7th - yes, a Saturday again - and pick-up on the 13th or 20th.

    Beyond incorrect.

    Apple doesn't announce iPads months before availability at the iPhone keynote, unless they're not having an October keynote.

    The only reason Apple decided to do iPhone 6S preorders on a Saturday was due to the typical Friday preorder day being September 11. Pre-order for iPad Pro will definitely be on a Friday.

    That's a silly reason IMO but ok. I take it there's no proof of this, just assumptions.

    Is it silly for a company to respect the families of victims in NY, PA, and DC by not taking attention away from their day of remembrance?

    Now? No. It's been 15 years.

    Precisely, it's been ONLY 15 years not 100 years.

    Good point but I was thinking does it really take attention away from their day. I mean, no one who lost someone and planned on going to the memorial is going to not go because they want to grab a new phone. And if they did, that's their problem.

    I was referring to media attention, plus Apple would want to avoid generating any negativity that would have possibly resulted.
