New images thought to be of the front assembly for Apple's next-generation iPhone were found on Sunday by Chinese site Apple.pro and posted to a Photobucket account that previously posted photos of measurements showing that the third-generation iPad would be thicker than the iPad 2, as well as the first leaked photo of the next-generation iPhone front panel in white.
Jim Dalrymple, the well-known Apple journalist, reported in his blog on Thursday that Apple may be preparing to debut a next-gen iPhone and 'iPad mini' at two separate media events. Apple is widely expected to debut the sixth-generation iPhone at a special event on September 12, at which time pre-orders are said to begin. Further rumors point to a U.S. rollout starting September 21. Almost nothing is known of the iPad mini. Different report suggests that the smaller iPad will debut at either the same iPhone event or at a later date.
The protective third-party cases allegedly designed to fit Apple's rumored "iPad mini" were discovered and highlighted on Friday by Giz-China.com. The cases show a space on the back for a rear-facing camera at the top left of the device that suggests that like all other portable iOS devices, including the iPhone and iPod touch, the smaller iPad will feature a rear-facing camera.
“Supply volume of Apple's 7.85-inch iPad is estimated to reach four million units per month starting in September in order to prepare for demand from year-end holidays, according to sources from the upstream supply chain”.

New information from iMore, one of the first to claim that Apple will be holding its media event to introduce the next-generation iPhone on September 12, points Apple will start taking pre-orders for its sixth-generation iPhone on September 12 following a special event announcing the device ahead of the already-rumored first wave of launches on September 21. Apple's first launch wave typically includes the United States.
The Verge reports that today in the Samsung vs. Apple court trial Apple called a financial expert Terry Musica to the stand. While on the stand Terry Musica provided the jury a breakdown showing how much profits Apple lost due to Samsung’s patent violation. According to his estimates, Apple lost 2 million iPad and iPhone sales, costing $488.8 million in total. The calculations are based on the products that Samsung is accused of copying, royalty fees that Samsung should have paid for accused products, and profits that Apple have lost.
Industrial designer Don Lehman has analyzed the leaked photos of the rumored iPhone 5 unibody design that should make the device stronger, lighter, and thinner than previous models, using a high-quality, thin metal shell wherever possible on the back of the device.
With the iPhone needing to send and receive Wi-Fi, cellular, GPS, Bluetooth, and perhaps NFC signals, Lehman notes that Apple redesigned the antenna system in order to push the antennas to the top and bottom portions of the stainless steel band wrapping around the device and avoid the "Antennagate" controversy that first took place with the iPhone 4. Lehman notes that even the bosses where screws for other components will attach are machined out of the single rear shell piece, increasing strength while reducing thickness and weight.
iColorOS (via Nowhereelse.fr) posted on Thursday more photos of the alleged next-generation iPhone parts, showing the protective glass cover, internal sensors and external buttons like the volume rocker, but the most interesting piece is a thin sheet of metal seemingly intended to be a protective shielding for the 4-inch screen's back.
In February, iMore reported that Apple would introduce a smaller dock connector for its iOS devices. Now these rumors are confirmed by various sources and the evidence revealed recently shows a much smaller opening in the casing of what is claimed to be the next-generation iPhone.
A new portion of the documents presented to the court by Apple as a part of the legal battle between Apple and Samsung show Samsung's proprietary home-screen icon designs are nearly identical to that of the iPhone's. As far as you know, Apple registered the most part of their icons as trademarks in 2010 that means that Apple accuses Samsung of another infringement of the iPhone-maker’s patents.
