Apple iPhone 5 & iPad Mini to be Unveiled During September 12 Event | Hypebeast

After rampant speculation, credible sources are now pointing to two definitive dates for the unveil and release of both the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini. Wednesday, September 12, 2012 will mark the official look at two of the more sought-after items, while September 21 will serve as the date in which the products will be available for public consumption. In addition, Apple typically shows off hardware-specific iOS features at new iPhone events as well – with last year serving as the introduction to advanced camera and video recording, Voice Control, FaceTime and Siri. As the rumor mill continues to swirl, many anticipate the iPad Mini to be 7 inches in size – nearly 3 inches smaller than the previous model. While Apple has yet to comment, expect a confirmation or denial very shortly as the sources of the rumor come from individuals who have proved accurate in the past.
