This rumor is coming true? Whereas everyone thought Apple would be announcing the next iPhone, iOS 6, and a new, smaller iPad at a single event, but this latest report says, that Cupertino will indeed hold a separate iPad mini announcement in October following the release of the new iPhone in next month “September”.
According to this report from John Gruber a few days back – repose towards the idea of the smartphone dropping first in September, with the “iPad Mini” following October. Daring Fireball’s John Gruber originally proposed this theory, and the well-sourced Jim Dalrympleseconded Gruber’s take.
Check this out on what AllThingsD has ‘confirmed’ that Apple will hold two separate events to launch the iPhone and iPad.:
“Apple’s next generation iPhone and its so-called “iPad mini” will debut at two separate events this fall, rather than a single one as has been widely speculated, according to several sources.
Only after the next generation iPhone is out the door and on sale will Apple announce the smaller iPad it’s been working on. That device, which is expected to have a display of less than eight inches, will be uncrated at a second special event, which sources said is currently scheduled for October.”
Means Apple would be announcing their mini tablet and next-generation iPhone in two seperate events according to the yesterdays report. The iPhone 5 (new iPhone) will be more likely be showcased on September 12th before on general sale nine days later of 21st, while smaller posing a 7.85-inch, cheaper iPad Mini is expected to follow at some point in October.
It is near us not more than a couple of weeks we’ll see the next iPhone’s release, and what it gets we already know. The form factor will remain strikingly similar to what we’ve seen with the iPhone 4 / 4S, although there will still be quite a few significant changes.
More considered with the new iPhone would be the screen that will become longer, width and dpi remains the same, with 4-inces diameter of the display a first for iPhone. To access the new screen, the device itself is purported as becoming slightly larger, and the home button looks a tad smaller from the leaks we already shown off.
With the polished, aluminum finish to the back, the FaceTime camera will take you up more central position, with the headphone jack will move to the bottom of the device, whereas the smaller USB dock connector will be significantly tiny than we have seen in previous iDevice production.
It said that the iPad Mini would also include the same smaller dock connector, imitates like an larger iPod touch due to thinner bezels along the side, and of course this isn’t the perfect news, while there will be some changes in store and also expected a front and back-facing snappers to capture. Storage space is likely to settle wth an 8GB, and the price are unlikely to surface until the special event in October, which would cost in retail at 200-300 buck or so.
Stay tuned and check the tow back-to-back Apple events, one for next iPhone launch in September and followed the next iPad Mini event confirmed for October? Still no words from the Cupertino company yet.
