Apple planning September 12 iPhone 5, iPad mini, new iPod event: rumour

A new report claims that Apple will launch at least three new iOS products at a September special event

Apple is planning to unveil its next iPhone at a special event on September 12, alongside the iPad mini and new iPod nano.

That's according to iMore, which claims that "sources who have proven accurate in the past," have said that the iPhone 5 will be available to buy on September 21, but the widely speculated 7.85in iPad's release date has not been specified, and the new iPod touch was not mentioned.

The report follows the earlier discovery of alleged iPhone 5 photographs, showing a device fully assembled from parts leaked from Chinese factories.

It is expected that Apple's sixth-generation iPhone will be taller, with a larger display, smaller dock connector, and a two-tone metal back.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
