Rumor: iPhone 5 And iPad 3 Both Coming In October

Posted in Apple News, iPad, iPhone on 01/07/2011 by J. Glenn Künzler


Its been anything but a quiet notion that Apple is expected to reveal a next-gen iPhone in the fall, with most rumors suggesting a release in September. A new report, however, indicates that the release will come in October – and include the iPad 3!

While it wouldn’t be surprising to see the iPhone 5 come in October, I have serious doubts about the iPad 3 – Many people that want one still haven’t yet been able to get their hands on an iPad 2!

The report cites information from Apple’s supply chain in Taiwan, and also indicate that Apple is only planning to release a single model of the iPhone 5 – another idea I find extremely doubtful, as offering multiple capacities and the choice between black and white would result in multiple models.

All in all, I don’t give much credit to this report – it seems like just another ill-informed move set in place by someone who wanted attention and/or publicity.
