Not much to say about this one, except that Apple has just announced a media event for next Wednesday, September 12 -- and judging from the invitation, the next iPhone may actually have a "5" in the name after all.
Now that most everyone agrees Apple will be introducing the next iPhone in September, the debate seems to now be focused on when the mythical "iPad mini" might make its debut: At the same time or a separate event?
Looking to unload your current iPad now that Apple has made its March 7 media event official? Apparently, you’re not alone -- eBay is reporting that trade-ins for Apple’s tablet have increased by ten times over last year.
It’s been quite a busy Monday evening since our daily recap was put to bed, particularly for those waiting on the rumored iPad 3 next month. A rumor about the announcement date was quickly confirmed, followed by additional confirmation that the next iPad will come packing 4G LTE for AT&T and Verizon.
According to sources at All Things D, Apple is allegedly planning an important, small-scale event that will be held in New York at the end of this month. The site posits that it will be a "media-related announcement."
Hmm, related to media you say? Well, we've already got a pretty hefty music, movie, and e-book distribution platform in place with iTunes. It's possible, according to our Rumor-O-Tron, that Apple will finally make the announcement it's entering the television game.
If you’ve been following the saga of Facebook’s native iPad app, you already know that yes, it does exist and according to reports circulating on Monday from a former developer, it’s been “feature complete” since May. So what’s the holdup? The social network may be using it as leverage to cozy up to Apple.
Apple is seriously breaking with tradition this year, throwing fans and tech press alike a giant curveball as the month of September winds to a close without the company’s annual media event. But sit tight -- according to sources, we’ll probably see invites flowing to the media within the next week, with the big event scheduled for October 4.
