Apple is in all kinds of telltales and if they all are believed to be true then the company has a very busy third and fourth calendar quarters of 2012. The alleged September 12 release date for the next generation iPhone is not news anymore but the expected adjoining release of the smaller iPad has now received new updates.
According to several sources cited on their websites, Apple is expected to launch the new 7.85-inch iPad on a separate day, somewhere in October. Moreover, some of those sources have confirmed that the new tablet will be called iPad Mini. It will have Retina Display and a smaller 8-pin docking jack among other goodies.
Previously, it was rumoured that the new iPhone release will be accompanied by a number of other devices. With the rumour of iPad Mini release mooted, the only device left is the new iPod Nano. According to sources, the company moves back to the previous rectangular sharp for the new iPod Nano instead of the 2011 square design. But, it will boast a touch screen and a home button at the bottom like the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Moreover, the new iPod will also have WiFi capabilities to connect to the iCloud for uploading and streaming content directly from Apple’s cloud service.
In other news the purported new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display is expected to be launched before the holiday season this year. The Fall 2012 version is rumoured to have an astounding 2560×1600 resolution, which will be manufactured by LG, Sharp and Samsung.
The release of the new iPhone also receives some updates. More images were release last week of the next-gen iPhone circuit by a French website, which spurred the speculation of an NFC chip at the top of the handset. However, experts have nullified the authenticity of the news as the space around the chip is too congested for it to be NFC chip and the metal case behind also weakens its legitimacy.
In addition, the news that the iPhone release event will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California has also proved false as the site is fully booked on September 12 for a microbiology conference.
