“I’m thinking it makes more sense for Apple to hold two events,” John Gruber writes for Daring Fireball.
“First, an iPhone event, focused solely on the new iPhone and iOS 6,” Gruber writes. “Then, the iPhone ships nine days later, and there’s another wave of iPhone-focused attention as the reviews come out. Then, in the first or second week of October, Apple holds its traditional ‘music event,’ exactly along the lines of the events at which they’ve been debuting new iPods for the last decade… An event where the iPad Air (cool, but just a smaller thinner cheaper iPad), new iPod Touch (cool, but just an iPhone without the phone), and maybe even new or at least updated iPod music players (eh) share the stage, tied together with the theme of consuming iTunes media content.”
To which The Loop’s Jim Dalrymple responds, “Oh that Gruber is a smart fellow.” Which is pretty much Jim’s long-winded version of “yep.”
