Next-generation iPhone to be announced September 12, iPad mini in October?
For the past few weeks, we figured that Apple would be unveiling both its next-generation iPhone 5 as well as a 7.85-inch iPad at the same event on September 12. We thought it made sense that the company would introduce its new iOS devices all at once, but Daring Fireball's John Gruber theorized that a simultaneous unveiling might not be in the cards because then the two devices would steal each other's thunder, so to speak.
I’m thinking it makes more sense for Apple to hold two events. First, an iPhone event, focused solely on the new iPhone and iOS 6. Then, the iPhone ships nine days later, and there’s another wave of iPhone-focused attention as the reviews come out. Then, in the first or second week of October, Apple holds its traditional “music event”[...]
Following this post, Jim Dalrymple of The Loop quoted and responded with one of his signature, short confirmations. Rather than a "Yep," he simply said "Oh that Gruber is a smart fellow." and left it at that.
Looks like we have two Apple events to look forward to over the next couple of months.
