I genuinely thought we would see one in October....I never knew it was 2015 Oct though!
Aside from the logistics of releasing everything in one quarter it would also create a dead quarter in the spring where there's no new product to spur sales.It does make you wonder though, about a decision to release the iPad Mini at the same time as new iPhone and new iPods (assuming they do release it).
I'm hoping that all of their iOS devices become named similar to the Mac lineup; iPad Mini Late 2012, iPhone Late 2012, iPad Early 2013, etc... This would certainly throw off the rumor mills from "expected" refresh times, and let us all forcibly relax a little more.
The old size isn't going away. It still has its place.Like the old one and it's perfect
