    Engadget mentioned yesterday that the Calendar app was sitting on October 1st.

    Any speculation that maybe this is the next event for the iPad mini/Mac refresh?

    "That cal is on October 1st. Clue for shipping?"

    They mention shipping referring to the iPhone but that was answered at the end of the keynote.

    Thoughts?

    Either a coincidence or Apple's mind games to **** with us. Besides, if anything, it would be related to iPods or iTunes 11, I believe they said that's all coming out in October.

    Uhh.. what? That sounds more like they were speculating it to be a possible iPhone shipping date, nothing about next months event is implied there.

    There has been multiple articles speculating on Apple having a October media event for the refresh of the iMac and Mac Mini and the possible introduction of a iPad mini.

    Having an October 1st media event for this might make sense as it will have been more than a week after the iPhone ships, and the event will debut the new products which, wouldn't ship till the next 1-2 weeks.

    If Apple wants to hit holiday season sales with the iPad and new Macs, they will want to start shipping them quickly.

    For the past few years an Apple media event has traditionally been on a Wednesday. The only exception that I know of was last year's iPhone 4S event. It was held on a Tuesday because Steve was on his deathbed.

    They've been Wednesday's for awhile. The iPhone 4S was an exception.
