MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Gadget fans waiting anxiously for the next iPhone may be reaching the home stretch.
There’s no official announcement from Apple but multiple reports say it’s planning a September 12th event at which it will presumably introduce the next generation of its smart phone.
It is being called the iPhone 5, although no name has been announced.
Speculation on new and improved features to the model includes a slightly larger screen, a smaller dock connector and technology which make it easier for shoppers to make payments through their phones.
The Apple-oriented blog iMore also reports the mythical “iPad Mini” will be unveiled. Rumors of an iPad mini with 7.85-inch display have been circulating for some time.
According to iMore, the iPhone 5 will go on sale on September 21. There are no details on if or when an iPad mini would be released.
