Apple‘s long-awaited new iPhone will be announced on Sept. 12, according to a report.
The blog iMore reports that Apple will announce the new iPhone — possibly called the iPhone 5 — plus a new iPod Nano via a special announcement on that data. The products will then hit retail on Sept. 21.
There is also a possibility that Apple will announce the iPad Mini on the same day.
Apple reps could not be reached for comment. During a call with analysts last week, though, the company repeatedly referred to a mysterious “fall event.”
The iMore report comes after The Guardian also reported last week that the new iPhone would be released in “mid-September.” The Guardian also reported that “the device will introduce a new 19-pin power and control connector on its base, dumping the 30-pin connector first introduced with the third-generation iPod in April 2003.”
Apple’s last iPhone release was the iPhone 4S on Oct. 4.
