iPhone 5 To Launch On September 12, 2012 At A Special Event Alongside iPad Mini?


Yesterday, a bunch of photographs detailing some new iPhone 5 leaked parts surfaced on the web and today, a report by iMore seems to claim that this next generation iPhone will be introduced by Apple at a special event on Wednesday, September 12, 2012 alongside an iPad Mini and a new iPod nano announcement. The source believes that New iPhone a.k.a iPhone 5 will go on sale 9 days after the event i.e on Friday, September 21. Release date for iPad Mini has not been confirmed, though it is also expected to debut alongside the iPhone 5.

According to the source:

The iPad mini will be announced at the same September 12 event, as will the new iPod nano. We haven’t heard a release date for the iPad mini yet, but it could be the same as the iPhone 5. It seems likely the new iPod touch will make an appearance on September 12 as well, though we haven’t heard any specific information about that yet either.

Last year, the iPhone 4S was announced on Tuesday, October 4, 2011, and released 10 days later on October 14. The event included minor updates to the iPod line, notably a white iPod touch 4. This year, the iPad 3 was announced on Wednesday, March 7, 2012, and released 9 days later on March 16. The event included a 1080p Apple TV.

Looks like we have merely six weeks to find out whether there is truth to any of these rumors or not! Don’t forget to share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.

    i wish people would stop calling it the iphone 5

    not only will it be the 6th iPhone (launching with ios6) as shown by the last ipad, it will simple be called, the new iPhone

  • iFone

    Beats me!

  • Kj

    It will serve people who want an iPad but can’t afford to pay 600$+ dollars

  • or people who want more portability.

  • Someone

    Yeah it’s called the iPod touch…

  • Ryan

    Dude… the Iphone 5 is the iphone 5… Iphone 4s is just the iphone 4 with siri and a faster processor!

  • crosseyed_mofo

    by that logic the iphone 4 would have been the iphone 3

    since the 3gs was just an iphone 2 (3g) but with a faster processer 🙂

    its moot anyways

    its the sixth iphone but it will simply be called the new iphone
