Last night, iMore first leaked Apple was going to hold an event to unveil its new iPhone, and other products on September 12th. After that AllThingsD, which Apple always posts official notice via it, together with The Verge, and The Loop also confirmed the info from their own sources.
The note also said that the handset would be released the following week.
While a September launch seems a bit early, considering last year’s timeframe, evidence is really piling up in its favor. In fact, a new report is out this afternoon reaffirming the date…
AllThingsD‘s John Paczkowski reports:
“iMore was first to report that the company has scheduled a special event for Wednesday, September 12, and now we’ve confirmed it as well. Sources tell AllThingsD that Apple is currently planning an event for that week. And while we haven’t yet confirmed its focus, history suggests it will indeed be the new iPhone. One thing’s for certain, though: Apple is ramping up for a big fall product cycle.”
Paczkowski’s sources have been extremely accurate in the past. AllThingsD has correctly reported on a number of Apple rumors this year including the iPad event date, and Apple’s all-new Maps application in iOS 6.
With two accurate, but separate, sources pointing to a September 12 event, we have no reason to believe otherwise. In addition to an all new iPhone, Apple is widely expected to unveil a smaller iPad and some new iPod products this fall. Whether those will all happen at the September event, or a separate one at a later date, still remains to be seen.
