Previously, there had been rumors that Apple would introduce iPhone 5 on the special September 12th event. Now, from all rumors and sources hot online, this saying seems to be more reliable. On the special September 12th event, Apple would not only introduce the iPhone 5, but probably other wonderful gadgets as well, including 7-inchiPad Mini and AirPlay Direct, though according to Gizmodo, well-connected and professional Apple dot-connector John Gruber is disputing the previous report about a dual-announcement of the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini and hinting that it makes more sense for Apple to hold two different events and announce the iPhone 5 on Sept. 12th and then wait until October to introduce the iPad Mini.
"First, an iPhone event, focused solely on the new iPhone and iOS 6. Then, the iPhone ships nine days later, and there's another wave of iPhone-focused attention as the reviews come out," Gruber explained. "Then, in the first or second week of October, Apple holds its traditional 'music event,' exactly along the lines of the events at which they've been debuting new iPods for the last decade.
At least we’re sure that the iPhone 5 is most likely to be released on September 12th event. From the rumors hot online, the next generation of Apple iPhone will be fully upgraded in various aspects. Features of iPhone 5 include:
9 Pin Dock Connector in place of the previous 30 Pin Dock Connector;
Larger screen (probably 4.0 inches compared to the 3.6 inches screen on iPhone 4S), thinner built;
LTE connectivity and faster processor;
NFC and passbook;
No Youtube and Google maps.
Meanwhile, a report on Tuesday claims inside knowledge of a new AirPlay feature Apple will allegedly introduce at its widely rumored Sept. 12 special event, with the new technology allowing users to stream audio directly to HiFi units or speakers without a Wi-Fi network. According to people familiar with Apple's plans, the so-called AirPlay Direct tech will require only an iDevice and compatible audio equipment for music streaming, doing away with the feature's current need of a Wi-Fi network, reports the Telegraph.
