Don't expect a new iPad 5 or iPad Mini at the expected September 10 Apple event -- that's the consensus of Apple experts and observers.
After rumors surface Wednesday claiming that new iPads would be announced alongside new iPhones, Apple blogs responded: No.
9to5Mac said that "it contradicts everything we've heard thus far about Apple's fall iOS Device launch plans from our sources."
AppleInsider also chimed in: "Last year, the iPhone 5 was unveiled at a media event in September, while the iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad were introduced to the public in October. It's likely that Apple will follow a similar schedule this year."
Other Apple enthusiast blogs were more succinct: "Nope. No iPads," said The Loop.
The 9.7-inch iPad 5 is expected to borrow design elements from the iPad Mini (see bezel photo above) and be thinner and lighter than the iPad 4. The new iPad Minis may include a non-Retina model with an updated processor and, later, a Retina iPad Mini.
