Word on the street is that Apple's newest iPhone has a release date. Apple is set to hold an Apple event to announce the release of the iPhone 5 on September 12 with products hitting the shelves on the 21st. The timing sound about right- last year the 4s was released on October 4th.
Rumors as to what the new device will look like has been abundant. The new device will be the first to boast the new 19-pin power and control connector on its base, getting rid of that 30 pin that we have become so used to. That means all accessories, including docking stations, will become obsolete. We also hear that it plans to boast a larger screen, 4inches to be exact along with a bigger battery.
In addition to the iPhone, the controversial iPad mini is also reported to make it's debut on that day as well. It seems as though Apple plans to toss a device in the ring to the compete with the fellas in the 7inch category, making it affordable and packing the same punch as it's 9.5 counterpart.
I'm looking forward to seeing what goodies Apple has in store. Are you?
The invitations have been handed out and now it is time to sit back and speculate. Apple has sent out invitations to the media for a special event on March 2nd. This event will be held in San Francisco, CA at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts at 10 am. While Apple is famously private about their upcoming releases, there have been many speculations as to what the new iPad features will be. Some have include front and rear facing cameras to support FaceTime video higher resolution graphics, dual-mode GSM and CDMA wireless data capabilities. It is also said to be thinner than the first gen iPad
I have to say at the top of my wishlist is USB port, but one can only hope!
