iPad 2 and iPhone 5 not delayed after all?

Earlier this morning we told you about rumors of the iPad 2 being delayed until June, but Jim Dalrymple from The Loop claims the rumors are completely false. He states that in addition to the iPad 2 being on track he also doesn't believe the other rumor making the rounds today -- that iPhone 5 would be delayed until September either:

The Internet is buzzing this morning with separate rumors that Apple’s iPad 2 and iPhone 5 will be delayed. The fact is, neither rumor is true. From what I’ve heard this morning both products are on schedule and will ship when they are supposed to. Only Apple knows exactly when that will be, but the products are not delayed.

The Loop usually has fairly accurate sources so we're going to side with him on this one. With how on-track Apple usually is with their release schedules, especially when it comes to their yearly iPhone updates, these rumors don't seem to hold much weight.

What do you think, will we still see iPad 2 this spring and iPhone 5 this summer?

  • Yes.
  • No, but I have news that ipad 2 has been delayed till June . For latest on iPhone,ipad,iPod,Apple,Android and Jailbreak visit
  • Breaking: Apple to make annual changes to products and deliver when ready
  • Hehe, there is no delay but no one knows what date Apple has set? The iPad 2 might be delayed to september, but one can argue that september was the date Apple wanted anyway, so there is no delay. This is a classic example of circular reasoning.
  • Then again apple should take a break from bringing new generation devices each year
  • This just in: Due to production changes, Apple's new iPad is a potato. A delicious addition to the lineup.
  • A rumor likely propagated to manipulate AAPL stock.
  • In related news, Kara Swisher at AllThingsD (not your average rumor-monger) is reporting 1st-hand knowledge that Apple will soon send invites to an event on March 2 where they'll announce the next gen iPad:
  • Since Apple has not announced any dates, there can't be any delays. Delays would be perceived by dates we want Apple to do things by. But only they know what they are doing. This is one reason why they try to keep things secret.
  • Doesn't matter to me. I love my iPhone 4. Just don't delay ios5
  • also i have got this news that iphone 5 and ipad2 are delayed to june.
  • Then it must be confirmed, since nobody would dare relay false information to Faraz.
  • Ha! They wouldn't dare!
  • Faraz is wrong too. BGR and Macrumors: iPad 2 event on March 2nd scheduled in San Francisco.
  • A shocking revelation! Reliable source xxDrummer Boyxx has revealed he is the ultimate source of confirmed knowledge, and not just some guy who reads before coming to! Astounding!
  • I am going to go ahead and say this... There is a secret employee meeting that seems to be happening this sunday. The employees will have to sign a nondisclosure agreement prior to attending the meeting. Which means that this is not a normal quarterly all hands meeting. They will announce that next week they are going to announce the new MBP, iMac and iPad 2 and all will feature the new light-peak technology... thats why they will all be announced at the same time.
  • It's a quarterly meeting Matt. The NDA that employees are requested to sign is in regards to the cupcake bake-off that Apple is planning. It prevents employees from sharing their delicious recipes with the public.
  • sounds like a likely reason for NDA... the actual weird thing is that this comes on the heals of that consumer reports article that states the store employees have no knowledge of forth coming announcements. Therefore no reason for a NDA unless they are about to gain some inside knowledge... I was surprised at the lack of knowledge the apple store employees had on 4 launch day.It appears that the launch and announcement are going to be so close together that they will not actually have time for learning any new features...
  • New features will not be necessary. All that matters is powdered sugar and food coloring. You'll see my friend. You'll see.
  • Thank all the God's
  • Well just because my iPhone 4 was dropped a couple of times and now has a few dings here and there, and I'm the most A.D.D person ever, I want to purchase my 5 this summer! :p
  • Has Apple ever missed a deadline? I would think that their products are on schedule until they say something. I think all these analysts are saying that because there's supposed to be new MacBook Pros coming out soon too.
  • Yes, both the iPad and the iPad 3G were delayed by a month
  • I'm waiting patiently fir the iPhone 5. My 16 g seems downright claustrophobic. I need more space, but will wait until the 5 comes and upgrade my second line to a 32 gig.
  • Definitely. It isn't like Apple to skip its yearly product cycles.
  • That is really? I just bought one ipad wifi+3g from in conpetitive price, it bring me a lot of fun and convenient, i like it very much.
  • Hi there, did you get your ipad from i heard its a scam
  • and what about the white iphone 4? do you think they will anounce it in the same event?
  • Yearly is kindof getting crazy. I little bit tooo fast. What's the iPhone 6, 7, 8, 20 gonna be?
  • I cherished up to you'll receive performed proper here. The sketch is attractive, your authored material stylish. nonetheless, you command get bought an shakiness over that you want be handing over the following. ill indisputably come further beforehand once more since exactly the similar nearly very incessantly inside of case you protect this increase.
  • I've been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours these days, yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It's lovely price sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.
