If you’re wondering when you might be able to get your eyes on some actual iPad 3 news, AllThingsD is reporting that the ever-present and all-knowing “sources” say Apple will announce the unit the first week in March. It is assumed the event will be held in San Francisco at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, one of Apple’s preferred locations. The all-knowing sources haven’t provided a release date as of yet, but if the iPad 3 follows the schedule of the iPad 2, it could release shortly after the introductory announcement by only a week or so. The device is said to be somewhat similar to the upgrade found between the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S: A similar form factor, but faster and more powerful bits stuffed inside. We won’t have to wait too much longer for some hard news of the new iPad, so sit tight, and try to figure out what you’re going to do with that iPad 2 you only bought a year ago.
- The last time there was a rumor on a next-gen Apple product, we thought it was the iPhone 5
- Which didn’t happen, because it was actually about the iPhone 4S instead
- But then there was a rumor that Steve Jobs scrapped the iPhone 5 months before release
