Apple to Hold September 12 Event to Launch 'iPhone 5' and 'iPad Mini'?

Posted July 30, 2012 at 5:33am by iClarified
Apple will reportedly hold an event on Wednesday, September 12th to unveil the 'iPhone 5' and 'iPad mini', according to iMore.

The new iPhone is said to launch just nine days later on Friday, September 21st but the site hasn't heard any details on when the iPad mini might launch.

As for hardware, we're still hearing the iPad mini will be exactly like the 9.7-inch iPad, only scaled down to 7.x-inches. We originally heard Apple had a few iPhone 5 prototypes, including 3.5-inch and 4-inch versions, but recent reports and parts leaks make it look like the 4-inch, 16:9 screen version is what Apple's going with. We've also consistently heard all new iOS devices will have the new, smaller Dock connector going forward, which along with the nano-SIM and rumored in-cell display should leave lots of room for the LTE radio we heard about earlier in the year, and the bigger battery to go along with it.

Yesterday, photos and video of a fully assembled 'iPhone 5' housing leaked online has expectation builds towards Apple's big reveal.

I already KNOW I can upgrade to a new iPhone 5 at the same rate as last year. And then sell the 4S for about the same I paid for my last upgrade haha...The trick is to have it unlocked. I haven't actually paid anything since I joined the iCraze.

Sounds good. Can't hardly wait. And I'm not being sarcastic. I do want an iPad mini. And I'm definitely getting the next iPhone.
iPad Mini?

The new MacBook pro was already released. Where have you been? Hiding under a rock?

You're right, but I was expecting a 13 inch macbook pro with retina display!

Don't think that will happen until next year buddy. They're probably still working on the layout and engineering of the components and smaller unibody. I was hoping for the same thing but just went with the 15 instead.

Yeah! Now let's see whether ATT and Verizon will balk at allowing people to upgrade before their contracts expire again. I expect nearly everyone will want the new iPhone if only for the faster 4G access, and the phone companies are likely to refuse unless forced.

Through process of elimination and copy and paste you were able to figure this all out on your own?
