Last night, Japanese website Kodwarisan reported that Apple would be holding its annual fall media event, which has always been focused around the introduction of new iPods, on Wednesday, September 7. While this speculated date would seemingly match up well with Apple’s past fall media events, which have all taken place around the same date, Jim Dalrymple from The Loop has debunked the rumor completely. Dalrymple claims that his sources have informed him that the event will not take place on this date nor will a new iPhone be launched on that day.
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.
