Rumor: Apple to Overhaul iPhone, iPad, iMac & MacBook Air in 2012

Sources in Apple’s supply chain sugest that Apple is planning to completely overhaul many of its product lines for 2012, including The iPad, iMac, iPhone and MacBook Air will all be included.

Rumors

According to industry publication DigiTimes:

Apple plans to completely overhaul its product lineups, including iPad, iMac, iPhone and MacBook Air, in 2012 and is expected to finalize order volumes for key parts and components for the next-generation iPad in December, according to sources in the upstream supply chain.

The report goes on to claim that Apple has requested manufacturers in the supply chain to develop flat panel modules and LED light bars for two iPad prototypes, codenamed J1 and J2, the sources said. Next-generation iPad and iPhone models reportedly will not be revealed until the second half of 2012.

An additional DigiTimes report discusses an upcoming iPad for early 2012:

Apple’s new generation iPad will enter mass production soon with the launch set for March 2012, according to sources from the upstream supply chain; however, the sources revealed that internally Apple does not view the new iPad product as iPad 3, but rather an upgraded iPad 2 and the real iPad 3 will not be launched until the third quarter of 2012 at the earliest.

While speculation is always fun, it must be remembered that these reports are merely rumors, and as has been proven out in the past, will most assuredly change as we go forward.
