MMi Exclusive: iPad 5 Coming 10/22, On Sale 11/11
MMi has learned from a knowledgeable industry source when Apple plans to formally unveil and launch its next generation iPad.
As of this writing, the company will hold a media event to introduce the iPad 5 on October 22nd. Current plans, however, do not call for the next-gen iPad mini to be unveiled concurrently.
Although we can't confirm if preorders will be accepted for the iPad 5, the source tells us based on information provided directly by Apple that the iPad 5 will officially go on sale November 11th.
No hardware specs were confirmed, but the chatter suggests that the Touch ID sensor introduced on the iPhone 5S will be a part of Apple's iPad 5. Apple is now in the process of ramping up production to meet the anticipated demand the upcoming holiday shopping season is expected to bring with it.
