No Apple Media Event on September 7th

Late yesterday, a report broke on Japanese site Kodwarisan claiming that Apple will be holding its annual fall media event on September 7th. Apple for the first time is expected to introduce new iPhone hardware at the event.


But sources have now flatly denied to the well-connected Jim Dalrymple of The Loop that any such media event will take place on that date.
Reports began to surface yesterday that Apple would hold a special event on September 7 to launch the new iPhone, but that’s not happening.

According to my sources, Apple will not have an event or launch the next iPhone on September 7. It’s hard to say how that specific date was chosen by the sites that started the rumor, other than it fits into the timeline of previous Apple events.
Dalrymple is known to have solid sources at Apple, and has occasionally appeared to be an unofficial outlet for the debunking of rumor claims.

For ever rumor, there is an equal and opposite rumor.

I love MacRumors and I get that Rumors is in the name, but these constant contradicting stories that are being posted within hours of each other are starting to wear thin.

yes but if the apple products were so great you would see more commercials promoting them.


They sell like candy. They promote themselves. You HAVE been following the news the last couple of years, right?

iOS is by far the dominant mobile OS. Android is barely a player in tablets because we're seeing that Android currently sucks hard on tablets. It must be a hard pill to swallow for Eric T. Mole to see that the tablet market (as in, next-gen computing) is nothing like the smartphone market.

Apple is the #1 smartphone vendor, and in terms of overall smartphone share, holds close to 30% with only one, and at most two phones, neither of which are new.

I'm not sure how any of this is "playing catch up."

In fact, It's a little surprising Google hasn't made more headway against a 14-month old phone and a 2-year old phone (the 3GS still outsells a lot of newer Android models.) It's kind of embarrassing, actually. Google and partners can barely match the 3GS in some cases. Apple, all on their own, with a closed platform, are essentially hitting all the millstones that actually matter, and leading the next generation of computing with the iPad.

If you consider that (as in, Reality), Google is vastly under-performing given their universal-licensing model.
