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.
