And now for a few more nuggets of information about Apple’s rumoured September 12 iPhone 5 event.This round of reports comes from iLounge, which has a so-so record when it comes to Apple rumours. Most of the news here is a rehash of stuff we’ve heard before.
We buy most of it:
iLounge says Apple will introduce a new iPhone (commonly called the iPhone 5), new cases for the iPhone 5, a new iPod Touch with larger screen to match the one on the new iPhone, and a smaller “iPad Mini.”
But we don’t buy this:
iLounge also says Apple may introduce a new full-sized iPad this fall that’s thinner than the current iPad and has a smaller dock connector to match the one on the iPhone 5. We think it’s highly unlikely Apple will try to update the iPad just six months after the third-generation model launched.
