RUMOR Apple to unveil iPad 2 at iOS event next week

“Citing sources within the accessories business, reported Thursday that Apple is planning an event next week to highlight the features of iOS 4.3,” Slash Lane reports for AppleInsider. “The site speculated that the second-generation iPad could be presented as the famous ‘one more thing’ at the end of the event.”

“Apple’s new in-app subscription feature was unveiled on Wednesday with the launch of The Daily for iPad,” Lane reports. “But when asked about when the functionality might become available to other content providers and developers, iTunes chief Eddy Cue declined to comment, saying that Apple would provide more details in the near future. An event for iOS 4.3 could be where those details would be revealed.”

Lane reports, “ does not have an established track record with respect to Apple rumors, though it did obtain parts for a white iPhone 4 in December, and it has also claimed that the ‘iPad 2’ will launch in early April. The alleged timeframe reported Thursday would also fit recent evidence that Apple could launch iOS 4.3 for the iPhone and iPad by Feb. 13.”

  1. Not bloody likely.

    It’s too early, and there is no way the iPad 2 is a “one more thing” at the end of some other event. When the iPad 2 is announced, it IS THE EVENT. Period.

  2. An event for iOS 4.3 seems rather pointless. There’s not that many new features, are there? Plus, iPad 2 will command its own media event.

    There won’t be any “one more thing” while Steve’s out on medical leave, anyway. That’s his trademark.

    Plus, when was the last time Steve did the famous “one more thing” anyway? Seems like it’s been a few years.

  3. nah. Apple will have a “one more thing” next week.
    it will be the iPad 2.
    and it will be available for pre-order immediately. shipping the next week.

    Granted, thats the Rumor i heard.

  4. I could see an early announcement if the some of the current models stay in the lineup with a price drop. Imagine if they continued the top and bottom models for all those who can’t have or don’t want a camera. Reset pricing to 399 and 649. Sales would continue with the same current holdouts holding out.
