The new iPhone model is scheduled to be announced on Sept. 12 at a mini-event, according ot iMore.com -- a site more accurate than some for Apple rumors. An iPad Mini is expected at this mini-event, as well. And, finally, a new iPod nano may be included.
The release date is purportedly Sept. 21 -- continuning a trend of releasing the model about nine or 10 days post-announcement.
9to5mac.com details the iPad mini as a 7.85-inch screen with the newer, smaller dock connector, but that it won't ship until November.
There's also a rumored update to the main iPad line, with a back-side mic, thinner design and less heat on the product. All good stuff...
More updates as they become more firm.
