The Next Generation iPhone 5 Official Release Date Schedules on September 12

It is reported before that the next generation iPhone, New iPod Nano and 7.85-inch iPad Mini will make an official debut on September 12, 2012 (Wednesday). And currently more information confirms the statement.

Jim Dalrymple at The Loop, who's well-known for his accurate one-word confirmations and denials of rumors, just posted his trademark "yep."



Apple's plans for its next iPhone refresh may be getting very tangible, very quickly. It all started when iMore heard that Apple was preparing to hold an event unveiling the new hardware on September 12th, with a launch the following week on September 21st. Although the relative newcomer to the iPhone release date rumor game is still building its track record, that claim may have just gotten some extra meat: AllThingsD is joining in the chorus and touts its own sources pointing to an event in the same timeframe. While it's almost a month earlier in the year than Apple's iPhone 4S event was in 2011, it's supported by an Apple filing with the SEC showing a sharp uptick in supply purchasing during the spring, which it would need to start production for the fall. All of it is still rumor, of course, but past experience suggests that iOS fans may want to plan any September camping trips for the Apple Store line late in the month, not Labor Day weekend.

We haven't known the exact name of the next generation iPhone: iPhone 5 or iPhone 6 or The New iPhone? The result will only be unveiled until the product release.

Best Apps for Live Olympic Games Watching from BBC, NBC, Reuters


Want the best apps to help you enjoy the Olympics on your smart phone or tablet? Go straight to the source: NBC will be broadcasting the games in the U.S., and the apps the network is offering will tap you into the games better than any other. Here’s a look at what NBC and other app developers have to offer.


BBC Olympics (for iOS, Android, and BlackBerry). The BBC says it will provide more than 2,500 hours of live coverage and daily text commentaries on its app. Guides to each sport provide history and general rules, why a particular sport is good for you (did you know archers can burn more than 300 calories an hour?), how Brits can get involved in the sport (nothing equivalent for those of us stateside, unfortunately), and the format of the competition at the games. You can customize the app by dragging your favorite sports to an always-visible bar at the bottom of the screen for quick access.

NBC Olympics Live Extra (for iOS and Android). Before the games even begin, prepare by selecting your favorite sports and events. Once you do, you’ll be notified by the app 15 minutes before showtime. Log in with your cable provider, and you’ll be able to watch events live on your tablet. In the weeks before the opening ceremonies, a Spotlight section featured previews of various sports, highlights of Olympic trials, and athlete interviews.

NBC Olympics (for iOS and Android). Two reasons to download this app to augment the live coverage: You love following and commenting on sporting events as they happen on Twitter, and you want to get the inside scoop about individual athletes. For the former, there’s a "Twitter tracker" built in, and you can choose to follow tweets about sports, athletes, or the "Tweet Sheet," which consists of tweets by the athletes. Link into your Twitter account to offer your own commentary. As for the athletes’ stories, you can search for your favorites or learn about some of the top-rated participants. You’ll get a bio, videos, photos, and the latest news about each.

Reuters Olympics London 2012 (for iOS). As you might expect from Reuters, this app’s emphasis is on the news coming out of the Olympics. It opens up with a photographic timeline showing the day’s events by sport. The app takes an interesting approach to presenting photos and information together. Tap on the “infographic” icon at the bottom of the screen, and informative tidbits pop up over the photo. Use finger gestures to move among the sets of facts on each photo. Most include data about the venue, number of competitors, and number of medal events for a given sport. A shot of the U.S. swimmer Cullen Jones, for example, also included facts about how the butterfly stroke was developed and the first man to swim 100 meters in less than a minute. That would be Johnny Weissmuller, better known as Tarzan.

iPhone 5 Already in Production Now and Will Release This Fall as Expected

According to a Japan-based blog, the next generation iPhone 5 will make a release in the coming months pretty likely.



The blog Macotakara had accurately expected the release date of Apple iPhone 4S last year. While iPhone fans expected iPhone 4S would be launched in June last year, Macotakara issued a report that Apple would release iPhone 4S in October and mass production of the product would be in summer this year. Facts proved the correctness of Macotakara. So it seems that the six generation iPhone (iPhone 5) will adopt the same schedule.

The blog goes on to say that the back of the new iPhone has both glass and aluminum. "In the area where aluminum is not used, there is glass". This contrasts with previous reports that claim the next iPhone will have an all-aluminum back like the iPad.

By comparison, the iPhone 4S sports glass coverings on the front and back.

The iPhone 5's most anticipated feature -- which has been widely reported -- is a larger 4-inch class Retina display with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Previous iPhones have had a 3.5-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio.

Apple has announced the new operating system iOS 6 in WWDC 2012, fans can glance at some functions of the next generation iPhone.

The game helps kids learn to be creative and work on their spelling.




Tap a Sneezie, watch it pop, and then start to pop other Sneezies. That's the gist of the game, and, for whatever reason, it's really addictive. There are multiple game modes, including a free play version.




In this colorful game you can pinch peeps into each other, and flick evil peeps away. It's simple to understand, but very entertaining. The game is universal, but plays in portrait mode on the iPhone for easy one-handed play, and in landscape mode on the iPad.

Kids will adore Swampy the alligator. He's a sweet-looking thing that needs help collecting water for his tub. Players can also collect other items, like duckies for Swampy to play with. It may not be easy for really young kids, but older ones will learn a lot about physics and fluid dynamics.




It's a simple point-and-tap adventure where Finn and Jake team up to stop the evil Ice King. Fans of the Cartoon Network show will love this game, not just because it features many fan-favorite characters, but because it also features the actual voices for characters Finn, Jake, and the Ice King.




This edutainment game teaches kids two things: One, it teaches them about the various countries. Two, it teaches them how to stack the countries up in such a way that they reach a checkered line and move to the next level. In the process of stacking countries, kids learn all kinds of interesting geography facts sure to make any parent happy.




Minecraft challenges kids to be creative. A child uses cubes to build anything he or she can imagine. But beware. At night, monsters come out. The key is to survive those so build with that in mind!




In this uber-cute game, kids must help Freddi Fish and his friends catch the culprit who took the Great Conch Shell. This means exploring various parts of the sea, and finding clever ways to help the quest along and discover who's behind the theft.




In these appisodes kids get to join Mickey in his adventures, talk to Mickey, and help out the denizens of the Mickey universe through various story-related activities. What's not to love about that!

iPad Mini: Look Like A Larger 3G iPod Nano and A Thinner 4G iPod Touch


















When you are surfing on the internet you will immediately notice that there are news everywhere about the appearance, the specs as well as the release date of the small model iPad—iPad Mini. They are dropping left and right, at we can never tell which are right and which are wrong. But at least, a few of them are going on the target.

The so-called iPad Mini will be thinner than the Amazon Kindle Fire and it may be as thin as an iPod Touch 4G. So the smaller iPad will be at 7.2mm, nearly 25% thinner than the new iPad. It is reported that the iPad Mini screen measures 7.85 inches. It might looks like a large iPod Nano rather than a small iPad.

According to some reports, the prototype for the rumored iPad Mini looks like a third generation large iPod Nano which indicates that the device likely employs tapered sizes although perhaps in a different fashion. The iPad Mini is with different design and capacities, which means that this will absolutely help Apple sell iPad Mini, with no negative impact on the full size iPad sales. It's within reason that the iPad mini will not use a Retina screen and use smaller storage options — maybe just 8GB. That said, expect Apple to use the dual-core A5X SoC to give the iPad mini as much computing horsepower as possible.

It is reported that Foxconn will start making the device in Brazil this September with the announcement and release coming prior to the holidays.

Conclude all the news and rumors these days and in the past, we strongly believe that the iPad Mini is on the way indeed. So let's wait and see what a surprise Apple will bring to us in the near future.
