In six weeks, students in the U.S. will be back in school, the NFL season will have begun, and Apple will unveil the sixth-generation iPhone. That last point comes from iMore, which says Apple’s next handset will be revealed on Wednesday, Sept. 12, and will be released nine days later.
According to the report, Apple will use their fall event to also announce the first iPad mini and a new iPod nano. In making this news, iMore quotes “sources who have proven accurate in the past.” A previous report stated a new iPod touch would also debut at the same event.
Like two lesser known sites, PhoneArena and App4Phone, iMore states the iPhone will launch in U.S. stores on Friday, Sept. 21.
Both these dates, which as a reminder are only rumors, sounds about right. After all, we’ve heard many times in the past few months that Apple would unveil the next iPhone in September.
In 2011, Apple unveiled the iPhone 4S on Oct. 4 with preorders launching Oct. 7. It arrived in U.S. stores on Oct. 11.
