Apple to launch iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 at September 10 iPhone Event?


It is almost certain that Apple will unveil iPhone 5S and possibly even the rumored iPhone 5C at a media event on September 10.

Bloomberg (via MacRumors) briefly reports that Apple may also launch the new iPads at the media event, and not just the new iPhones.

Bloomberg reports:

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.

    Possibly, if Apple has finished iOS 7 for iPad

    It doesn’t make sense to launch so many products in the same month. And if they do, I will buy the iPhone next month and the iPad mini 2 in October.

      Just regards they have finished OS and HW, Why doesn’t make sense ? Do you have any reason ? Please, it is just asking.
      1. Logistic control? Nothing matter, actually
      2. Too busy at AppleSore ? Why? Actually, just 2-3 days after start to sell, after, non stock and just slow at AppleStore
      3. Marketing reason ? maybe possible to keep a mood.
