Bloomberg (via MacRumors) briefly reports that Apple may also launch the new iPads at the media event, and not just the new iPhones.
The Cupertino, California-based company plans to introduce new versions of its phone and tablet at a Sept. 10 event, a person familiar with the matter has said, and the company promised “several more game changers” in the product pipeline as it tries to fend off Samsung Electronics Co. and Chinese makers selling cheaper handsets.
The report also notes that Apple has plans to open the first retail store in Tokyo since 2005.
We are expecting Apple to launch iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 in the October or November timeframe. In fact, rumors have also suggested that Apple could delay the launch iOS 7 for iPad, and bundle it with the new iPad hardware.
We’re quite skeptical as it would be a logistical nightmare for Apple to launch the new iPhones and new iPads at the same time.
