Prologue: All the products at this time (August 2nd) and what I think if you consider on buying any of them to either wait or buy.
Apple Products to Wait or Buy
Here in a list form is all the major Apple Products that I advise you to wait or buy on. (Using the Apple Store as a guide)
iPad 2 - Buy Buy Buy, the next version will not be released till probably April of next year, or maybe March. However I have read some predictions for a January launch, but I think thats ridiculous.
iPhone 4 - Wait, As much as a love this phone, wait. There has been another delay of the iPhone 5, however it will be in the market in the next three months, so if you can wait that long, then wait.
I’ve had my iPad 2 for two months and have
wastedspent an inordinate amount of time playingworking with it. So far, then, these are my favourite apps, starting with the one I use the most often and continuing in descending order of the amount of usage.

Translated from a spanish post:) Is this the iPhone 5?
Very rumors about the iPhone right now 5. How it looks, when it comes from and what it contains. Rumors, rumors but no one knows more surely than Steve. It is unlikely that Apple will go out with a presentation until all is clear. One hundred percent.
However, so it does not prevent people to develop their own speculations on how the iPhone 5 will look like. Apparently it is one or more who picked up shell is supposed to be tailored just for iPhone fifth Now it has also turned up images that gossip about the phone itself will look like.
According to the picture above as gossip design of a rounder appearance at the edges. Much nicer as myself. But any further security to the iPhone 5 looks like. It is not. Though it is certainly strange that someone or some developed economies which are said to be peeled for the next iPhone, and then pops up a picture on the hardware with the same design?
iPhone has been issued this year. Since most of perhaps you may know, usually Apple broadcasts or releases their new iPhone in June of every year (except for the iPhone 2G). As every year continues, more and more inside information is leaked by the various manufacturers and I’ll go over several…
An internal Telus document leaked to BGR states that the iPhone 5 will launch on October 1st in Canada. Last year Apple did not include Canada as part of the first group of countries to receive the iPhone 5. So even if this date is accurate, it’s possible the U.S. would see the device earlier,…
iPhone 5 has been distributed to carriers for testing. It awaits approval. If this goes smoothly then the August release date for the iPhone 5 will really be an accurate prediction.
I have talked about the iphone 5 before and now I have some interesting rumored updates about the phone. Check them out here.
So, the only thing I know for sure is that the next iPhone is launching in the fall. And the only reason I know that is because Apple is not going to launch iOS 5 without the new hardware. And iOS 5 development is wrapping up and all indications are that it will hit the stated fall release.
Charles Arthur’s logic in taking down John Paczkowski’s report that the iPhone 5 will launch in October seems a bit fuzzy though.
Arthur states that iOS 5 looks to be “rolling towards a September release” but gives no real reason why he thinks that other than what I just stated, it looks about done. But all that means is that Apple can release it whenever they choose. And again, it will come with new hardware.
He also cites carrier sources as saying they’re being shipped the new hardware under lock and key. That’s the hot story of the day. But again, that doesn’t mean too much for Apple. Apple will launch the thing when it’s ready.
Arthur also brings up the Windows Phone “Mango” cycle for no apparent reason. The iPhone 5 is hardware, Mango is software. Totally different. There are no handset makers that need to get their hands on the iPhone 5. Apple makes it.
He also brings up “Antennagate” for good measure. Remember, everyone stated this was a colossal fuck up that would sink the iPhone because the devices weren’t tested enough. Of course they actually were. And Apple sold over 20 million units of the “defective” device last quarter. A record.
But the real kicker is Arthur’s logic that the iPhone will come in September because Steve Jobs himself has said they like their products to have as much time as possible on the market to sell.
Uh, no shit.
If Apple releases the iPhone 5 in October rather than September, it won’t be them holding it back for no reason. It will be because they feel that’s the timeframe they’ll be able to nail a successful launch.
Arthur states that he doesn’t think there are any supply constraints holding the iPhone 5 back, but I have a hard time believing he actually knows that. Even the iPad 2 was constrained until very recently, and it led to less sales. These things are fluid, Apple runs such a tight ship in the supply chain that seemingly minor hiccups can affect things.
So September or October? I don’t know. It will be one of them. Or what about this: Apple announces iPhone 5 in September for an October release?
Apple always announces the device before it goes on sale. Sometimes it’s just a couple of weeks before, sometimes it’s a number of weeks before (and with the first iPhone, it was months before).
But perhaps history shouldn’t be any guide here. After all, Apple has never released an iPhone in any time other than the summer. This year is different.
Also, we’re arguing over a few weeks here.
THIS IS IT! THIS IS THE iPHONE 5! AT LEAST I AM 95% POSITIVE!!!
