iPad Mini and iPhone 5 to be revealed at separate events

Smaller iPad set to be revealed weeks after iPhone 5 launch

A new report from All Things D claims the iPad Mini will not be released until October, weeks after the iPhone 5 is revealed at a special event on 12 September. The move means Apple will be able to eke out as much hype about the scaled down tablet, while also ensuring its new iPhone gets maximum publicity.

“Several sources” have spoken to All Things D to confirm Apple’s plans, backing up recent conjecture from analysts that Cupertino did not want its two flagship iOS devices being released simultaneously.

The iPhone 5 event is likely to be announced in the next week or so, with the date of the iPad Mini gathering being left to the rumour mill to churn through, creating the hype and hoopla that Tim Cook and co obviously love.
