The anonymous post revealed that "iMore[.com] shares today that the iPad 5 could arrive in less than a month. Citing an "April-ish" release date, iMore believes the iPad 5 will precede the next iteration of the iPhone - iPhone 5S, slated for an early summer release. Of course with this news we also know it is likely the iPad Mini 2 could come right in line with big brother devices iPad 5."
Wow. That's a lot. Helpfully, iDesignTimes provides a link to the iMore post, by its editor in chief, Rene Ritchie.
The only problem is that Ritchie published that post at 1:20 a.m., Tuesday, March 5...nearly six weeks ago.
The Rollup made note on March 6 of Ritchie's post, which cited "sources familiar with the plans" for the "April-ish" announcement prediction. There's still plenty of time left in April for Ritchie to be proved right. And, of course, for iDesignTimes to keep creating "new" rumors by recycling older ones.
And for everyone else to tout dates between now and Dec. 31. Eventually, someone will be right.
