Here’s yet another round of iPhone 5 and iPad 3 rumors: according to unnamed industry sources from Taiwan, Apple’s new smartphone and tablet “are likely” to become available in October this year.
DigiTimes has it that Taiwan-based component makers have already begun to prepare materials for the new iPhone and new iPad, which may be both officially announced in September.
Contrary to what we’ve heard several days ago, DigiTimes says that Apple indents to introduce only one new iPhone this year, not two models. Reportedly, about 6-7 million new iPhones will be produced before the end of Q3 (September). Total iPhone shipments may reach about 50 million units in the second half of the year (Q3 plus Q4) – iPhone 4 shipments are included here.
As for the iPad 3, now it’s said that its display might have a 250dpi resolution. It’s not the first time we’re seeing reports on this (a new iPad with huge display resolution), thus it might just be true. Of course, nothing’s truly true until Apple says it is, so don’t put your hopes in this just yet.
