Apple will roll out iPhone 5, then iPad mini later

Apple will reveal a smaller iPad at an event separate from the next-generation iPhone announcement.

This is contrary to previous rumors and reports, which indicated that the new tablet and phone would be unveiled at the same event. The latest report comes from AllThingsD.

Apart from the upcoming iPhone event, which is rumored to be dated for September 12, with a release on September 21, Apple is said to be planning a separate announcement of a smaller iPad, nicknamed iPad Mini by the press.

The rumored tablet is said to have a screen size of approximately seven inches, and will be comparable in size to tablets such as Amazon’s Kindle Fire. However, if past reports are accurate, it will maintain the aspect ratio of the current-generation iPad, meaning it should be slightly wider than competing 7-inch tablets.

John Gruber of Daring Fireball, who argues that the iPhone is too popular to share its announcement with another Apple device. “Why share the spotlight?” he asked in a recent blog post.

Apple would not want reviews of both devices to hit the Internet at the same time.
