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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
