Looks Like Apple May Not Hold An ‘iPad Mini’ Media Event On Oct. 17 After All

by on October 10th, 2012

According to a report by Fortune from last week, Apple was expected to send out invitations to the media today, regarding a special ‘iPad Mini’ launch event rumored to take place on Oct. 17th. However, noon has passed without any such invite from Apple which pretty much suggests that the company may actually not hold an event on Oct. 17 after all, notes the Fortune.

“If the company were planning an Oct. 17 special event, we should have heard by now”, says Fortune’s Philip Elmer. He also admits that his source, who was a major Apple investor, was wrong about the timing and he was wrong himself to pass the tip along.

Looking at past three Apple media event invites, they were all received before 12:00 p.m. Eastern time. However, that time slot has already passed. Below are a couple of interesting tweets from The Loop‘s Jim Dalrymple and Macworld’s Chris Brennan:

Chris Brennan: BREAKING imaginary iPad mini event invite late, iPad mini DELAYED. Imaginary apology from Tim Cook expected. More at Unicorn o’clock.

Jim Dalrymple: I think I’ll take a break and go get some lunch. It’s a quiet day.

What do you think, will Apple surprise the world this time with a last-minute invite?

    They won’t announce an iPad Mini, because it doesn’t exist.

    That website is just as credible as all the other websites. I still think one will surface.

    It will come, they have to delay because they are having problem making the case. Besides with the quality control failure of iPhone5, they’d rather be late than making bunches of scratched crap.

    Quality control failure? There’s no quality failure with my iPhone 5! The reports you’ve read have never been corroborated by Apple so you should only take it with a grain of salt.

    Maybe it’s just bad luck, I had to exchange my iP5 three time and this one still came with a scratch. So from my own experience and from so many reports I have heard. It’s a QC failure. P.S. I’m an apple fan too. I’m just saying from my own opinion, so please don’t attack me here. Thanks.
