After reporting that new iPads would not be a part of Apple’s September 10th event to launch the next generation of iPhone devices, Bloomberg has apparently unearthed information to change to their tune. A source now says Cupertino will show off refreshed phone and tablet offerings on that day, per a few lines slipped into a story about a new Apple retail store in Tokyo
The report does not lend any clarification as to whether we will see the fifth-generation iPad, an iPad mini refresh, or both. There is also the possibility that Apple gives us a Mac Pro-esque tease for the new iPads with a launch date coming closer to the end of the year. Launching two new iPhones and two new iPads concurrently could, after all, be counterproductive for the company.
The fifth-generation iPad is said to take its design cues from the iPad mini, featuring a similar display that will allow for a much thinner bezel. The iPad mini could see an update that includes a Retina display.
