  • Apple Rumored to Announce New iPhone on September 12th


    A report from the folks over at iMore who claims to have cited sources that “have proven accurate in the past” claims inside knowledge of an unannounced Apple event that will supposedly unveil the next-generation iPhone, a new iPod Nano, and the long-rumored smaller iPad model currently being called the “iPad Mini.” The information, which seems to come right after fully-assembled next-generation iPhone pictures have been released, seems to add up to what could possibly be an accurate date.

    The sources go on to say that the next-generation iPhone will likely go on sale the week of September 17th, just one week after its debut. The rollout dates for the smaller iPad and the iPod Nano weren’t mentioned though. It was being reported previously that the iPad could possibly be unveiled sometime in October at a sub-$200 price point. The launch date rumors seem to go hand to hand with several analyst projections of an early September launch for the next-generation iOS devices.

    Foxconn was previously reported hiring extra staff to accommodate the influx of iOS device orders and the Zhengzhou plant is said to have already rolled out a few iPhone batches ahead of mass production as well. Information on where the iPad will be built remains unclear, as there seems to be conflicting reports of whether the assembly will take place at Foxconn’s Chengdu plant in China or Jundiai plant in Brazil. The sources also didn’t offer any additional information regarding hardware specifics, although they did reiterate that the iPad mini will “be exactly like the 9.7-inch iPad, only scaled down to 7.x-inches.” The description they provided seemed to go hand to hand with earlier “leaked” engineering samples of the device that showed the inclusion of the smaller, 19-pin dock connector widely expected to be introduced in the next-generation iPhone. There isn’t much information about the new iPod Nano aside from one source who claims the device will be moving to a smaller iPhone-like design with a home button.

      Why is that? Think a little bigger would be nice. What else can they do to make it different.

      Forget the new iphone and what it's going to look like. How long until the first un-tethered jailbreak will be out for it?!? That's the real question. I don't know about everyone else but i use more jailbreak apps then app store apps. Really the only stock apps i use is weather, calender, phone, and the music player. Rest are basically jailbroken paid for apps and tweaks few some app store games and couple apps. Phone is almost useless or child's play to me without jailbreak.

      I agree, that is the big question. I bought the 4s the day it came out, and went about three months or however long it was before they got the jailbreak working. That whole time I kept my 3gs to use an a jailbroken Ipod since most of my programs and apps were on there. It kind of sucked. I won't be buying the 5 the day it comes out. I will wait for the jailbreak this time.

      OBVIOUSLY you are not MOST people. My phone is jailbroken but MOST of the apps/tweaks off the app store i.e cydia and repos are just that ---tweaks! AFAIK there are no games/apps that besides tethering and plugins for current apps that are on the app store. Unless of course you are talking about PIRATING apps that are on the app store? Not to make this a discussion about pirating but IF that is what you a re talking about then the phone IS fully functional for you ! You are just not willing to pay for things! IF you are just talking about the various (VERY COOL) tweaks that are available when you jailbreak well thats NOT the same thing as being a "functional" phone now is it?
