Wednesday, September 12th is the day that Apple is planning a special event to unveil their next-generation iPhone along with the iPad mini according to a detailed report from iMore.
Citing "sources who have proven accurate in the past," the mobile tech blog claims Apple will put the iPhone 5 on sale nine days after the special event on Friday, September 21.
This latest news comes just one week after French blog App4Phone.fr, reported a September 21 release date for iPhone 5 — citing Chinese manufacturing sources. Last year, Apple launched the iPhone 4S in October which rewarded the company into an impressive calendar fourth quarter. A late September release of iPhone 5 coupled with a new iPad mini could help Apple close their calendar third quarter with a big bang effect.
If this claim proves accurate, Apple's next-generation iPhone (The New iPhone) debut is roughly six weeks away. iMore sources failed to target a release date for the iPad mini.
"We haven't heard a release date for the iPad mini yet, but it could be the same as the iPhone 5." - iMore
The Wall Street Journal's tech blog "All Things D" has confirmed that Apple is indeed planning a special event on September 12th.
"Sources tell AllThingsD that Apple is currently planning an event for that week. And while we haven’t yet confirmed its focus, history suggests it will indeed be the new iPhone." - All Things D
