For some time we have known that Apple's planned press event to officially reveal the iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 will be on October 22nd. We even have learned the newest Mac Pros and MacBook Pros will be revealed that same day. However, we have some new leaked intel which suggests the actual retail launch date of these devices will not be the same day as the unveiling. According to this new report we have a few different final retail store availability dates for several new Apple devices.
Here's the info:
We don't have any additional corroboration for this info, so we will categorize it as a rumor for now. Most of the time, Apple likes to launch their devices on or around the same day as the unveiling, but that hasn't always been the case, so there is precedent for this rumor to be true. We will keep you updated if/when we find out anything new.
- New MacBook Pros on 24th or 25th October
- iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 on 30th or 31st October
- Mac Pro on 15th November
