Jim Dalrymple hints that Apple will hold separate iPhone 5 and iPad Mini events in a recent post on The Loop.

Dalrymple quotes John Gruber's musings on the idea:

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", exactly along the lines of the events at which they've been debuting new iPods for the last decade.

He then captions the quote with, "Oh that Gruber is a smart fellow."

Dalrymple is considered an authoritative source on Apple news and is often used by the company to release information publicly.

Apple always is step forward, and if launch any Apple product, as always will be success, Doesn't matter when will launch.Outhere are people that are waiting for all new products! And always will be in this way.... I don't think that other company has all this great product, When raise p,the first iPhone was blockbuster, after the iPad the same, even was couple things that was not good, but they breaks all sales also with the iPad.

I call bullshit on this story. With amazon and Microsoft ready to launch new tablets, apple would be dumb to push the iPad mini launch to October.
