Jim Dalrymple reporting for the Loop on the rumored date for Apple’s iPhone/iPod/iPad announcement:
According to my sources, Apple will not have an event or launch the next iPhone on September 7. It’s hard to say how that specific date was chosen by the sites that started the rumor, other than it fits into the timeline of previous Apple events.
I’d love to hear when his sources believe the launch/announcement will be. I kind of banked on that week being the announcement time frame by taking a week off of work then. Jim’s sources claim that it won’t be on September 7, but he doesn’t specifically say that it won’t be during that week. However, if Apple doesn’t announce anything then I’m certain there will be plenty of rumors to occupy my time.
