Apple planning September 12 iPhone 5, iPad mini, new iPod event: rumour

A new report claims that Apple will launch at least three new iOS products at a September special event

Apple is planning to unveil its next iPhone at a special event on September 12, alongside the iPad mini and new iPod nano.

That's according to iMore, which claims that "sources who have proven accurate in the past," have said that the iPhone 5 will be available to buy on September 21, but the widely speculated 7.85in iPad's release date has not been specified, and the new iPod touch was not mentioned.

The report follows the earlier discovery of alleged iPhone 5 photographs, showing a device fully assembled from parts leaked from Chinese factories.

It is expected that Apple's sixth-generation iPhone will be taller, with a larger display, smaller dock connector, and a two-tone metal back.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
