The report, from iMore, believes Apple will introduce the new devices along side the launch its sixth-generation iPhone and iOS 6.
“iMore has learned that Apple intends to update their entire lineup of iOS device products to support the new, miniaturized Dock connector, and to do it as early as the rumoured September 12 special event,” iMore said.
“This would include the new iPhone 5, the new iPod nano and iPod touch, the rumoured 7in iPad mini, and an updated version of the current 9.7in iPad.”
It appears unlikely Apple would launch a new 9.7in iPad just six months after announcing the third-generation tablet in March, however iLounge reported last week that Apple’s “current plan for the fourth-generation iPad is to release another relatively modest body tweak, which would keep the shape basically the same while introducing the new small Dock Connector, a rear-side microphone, and spec-improving/heat-reducing changes to the hardware inside.”
Apple’s iPhone 5 is expected to be announced on September 12, with sales to begin on September 21. The already announced iOS 6 is also believed to arrive on the same day, along with a 7.85in iPad tablet.
