The iPhone 5, iPad Mini and a new iPod nano might be announced September 12

The iPhone 5, iPad Mini and a new iPod nano might be announced September 12
Our tipsters sent us September 21 as the day when the sixth iPhone generation will hit the shelves, and we are also suspecting the iPad Mini to be announced and released concurrently.

Now "trusted sources" have confirmed once again that rumored September 21 release date for both the iPhone 5 and the iPad Mini (placeholder names), but add that there will be a new iPod nano released as well, and all three new Apple devices are to be announced September 12.

Apple released the iPhone 4S 10 days, and the new iPad 9 days after their respective official announcement, so the September 12-21 timeframe seems entirely plausible.

If you're going to make a retarded comment, the least you could do is use the most up to date Android version.

Because they are seething over the sales success of the Android handsets and Android's newest release - JB? The GS III is a far better phone than een the rumored iPhone 5 and JB has run away and hidden from iOS 6. $5.9B in profits for Sammy is real $. Cash talks as the saying goes.

ICS is still much better than iOS6 so the guy obviously does not want to wish for too much.

ICS would be a HUGE improvement over iOS6 but hey it's only a joke. Now this design is very iPhone 4ish don't you think? It's just a bit taller & it looks to be just as thin or a bit thinner than the iPhone 4.

I don't know but I am getting pretty tired of the same old same old design & I don't even own an iPhone 4. I can't imagine how all the people who DO have an iPhone 4 or 4S who wanted a new design heck even a new OS, will react like once they see MORE of the same.

Apple is really testing their existing customer base, they are mimicking RIM's Black Berry with it's same designs & same OS. Look where that philosophy led them. Remember RIM was like Apple is right now. History tends to repeat it self.

Wow that is really cool that you can look & see the differences & are not blind because of that extreme Apple ideology that is present among SOME Apple fans.

I can respect that because you made your own decision & were not coerced by others.

+1 to you! & welcome to the other side. It's not that bad as some make it out to be right? lol :-)

I know, it's always so entertaining to read your posts & how you incite people. It definitely makes the time at work go faster when I am not so busy.

Seriously the proposed design for the iPhone 5 does look nice, don't get me wrong but isn't the style getting a bit stale & bland now.

the funny thing is that those fandroid know iphone will never surpass android, and yet they still wanna troll on every apple article, such as '4inch screen 4g lte is a 2010' etc

Cant they just leave apple fanboy alone? lol

I know I bash apple sometimes but I just want to let apple fanboy know what is correct and what is wrong...

Such as playing lawsuits with competitor, and leak some apple device just to hype the shxxp is the very wrong way for Apple in order to make the profits...

Thats why I keep sayin the iphone5 is a FAKE!!! and I hope to reduce some dissapointment from fanboy :)

lol That is very benevolent of you. You are trying to ease their pain BEFORE they feel it. It seems you are convinced the iPhone 5 will not be up to par.

Well then that makes 2 of us. I thing right now what Apple needs is a boost & by that I mean they need something better than iOS6 & some thing better than that "iconic" look the claim.

There are going to be people who say Apple is on top or are content resting on their laurels but I see them walking down the same path RIM blazed if they don't change things & keep it FRESH.

Look at Android, there OS updates look different & are more & more efficient. Their OEM's make countless different looking devices. Android stays FRESH & that is why they keep on selling & selling.

I am not saying Apple is not selling but if RIM at it's prime can fail like it did, why won't Apple especially since they are following RIM's exact formula?

Wishful thinking if you think Apple will fail. You say this every year and every year Apple smashes competitors.

Recent surveys show demand for the new iPhone is higher than ever.

SGSIII isn't selling well at all in the US. The 10 million number is sold to stores not customers.

taco50 sold to stores, really?

How do you know that out of those 10 million sold, some weren't activated in the nearly 1,000,000 activations Android has daily? The Samsung Galaxy S III is PREMIUM, it's selling well.

You must check the recent post on DailyTech website, Apple sale peak on 2011 then tapped down in 2012, it continue to go down like RIM because Apple use same design and iOS for six years.

Wait a min... you just mentioned a web site that doesn't have "apple" in it's name. That means taco probably won't know the site or even care even if the site is stating good valid facts. Better try again...

Ipad mini,iPod nano and new iPhone,bank accounts are going to be emptied as Ifans will be buying all 3 that day irrevelant if they are all essentially the same device. Also seeing as the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s will have ios 6 and the new iPhone looks like its gonna be the exact same as the 4s with a slightly larger screen it'll be interesting to see ifans reaction to how actually 'new' apple claim it is

All that aside any new phone unveiling will be very interesting to see

You can only design a phone so.......many ways e.g. look at the S2 & S3. Basically, they just removed the rough edges, but the phone looks as other Android design from the past. S3 looks similar to the Nexus, HTC One, and Lg revolution. I didn't say the same, as said similar. Some are ticker, slimmer, lighter etc
