Just a couple of weeks ago, it was debunked that Apple would be holding an event for the iPad 3 in February. Today, a new rumor has popped up and it seems to be true. iMore reports that Apple is planning to hold their iPad 3 on Wednesday, March 7, 2012. In the past, a majority of Apple’s events have been on a Wednesday.
In addition, the report also claims that the iPad 3 will include a 2048×1536 Retina display as well as a quad-core A6 processor and “possibly” 4G LTE networking. They cite sources “who have been reliable in the past”. Now you maybe thinking that anyone can come up with such a rumor, but well-connected Jim Dalrymple of The Loop also backs up the claim with a simple “Yep”. Dalrymple has been reporting on Apple for over 20 years and has been known to have sources inside Apple.
If we look back at history, this can very well be true:
Announced: Jan 27, 2010
Released: Mar 5, 2010
Announced Mar 2, 2011
Released: Mar 11, 2011
