This is no doubt the best time of the year, when we are all set to welcome few of the best revolutionary devices which will leave a prominent mark in the field of technology in the coming future. Now we know that the Apple iPhone 5 and Apple iPad Mini, which is a smaller variant of Apple’s iPad would be unveiled in two-different public events. While the iPhone 5 is expected to be unveiled on September 21 ‘2012, the reports from sources close to Apple confirm that the iPad Mini event will take place right after one month, sometime in October ‘2012. Here’s more, right after the jump.

The reason behind holding two different media events is clear. Why would a technology giant like Apple expose two of its future devices on one single day, affecting the publicity of each of the two devices? Apple would never want to share the publicity of both devices on one single day!

Though there has still been no word coming directly from Apple regarding any of these reports, we have our friends at AllThingsD giving us a good explanation of why iPad Mini would be unveiled after iPhone 5, later in October ‘2012.

John from AllThingsD has published the following on the blog:

Only after the next-generation iPhone is out the door and on sale will Apple announce the smaller iPad it’s been working on. That device, which is expected to have a display of less than eight inches, will be uncrated at a second special event, which sources said is currently scheduled for October.

Some have already speculated that Apple would likely separate these two iOS device announcements, particularly since both are likely to be blockbuster events.


It is clear that Apple iPhone 5 is coming. Now it is clear that it will be the only showstopper of Apple’s media event to be held later in September ‘2012. In the meantime,  iPad Mini will be sporting a 1024X768 pixel display, with a smaller screen. Right now, it is best to wait for an official word coming from none other than Apple itself.
