A place for everything and everything in its place. It seems Apple has chosen a Tuesday for their announcement(s) and the rest is similarly just as you’d expect: Mac, iPhone and iTunes betas are all winding down — the mothership is generally pulling together the other loose ends.
All Things D is reporting with certainty that Apple will hold a media event at 1 Infinite Loop on Tuesday, October 4. Various sources are saying Tim Cook will deliver the keynote.
Thereupon, Next Web reports that Apple has seeded a fresh developer build of OS X 10.7.2, which brings compatibility with iOS 5, iCloud and, one imagines, has iTunes 10.5 — which is also in beta. The latest Lion beta seed arrived in dev hands with no known issues.
For its part, AppleInsider adds that Twitter will be holding a “Developer Teatime” on October 10 and 12. Of course, iOS 5 includes deep Twitter integration.
9 to 5 Mac chimes in with the news, not a rumor, that Apple plans to reset iCloud libraries on Monday, September 26 at 12 noon (EST).
Thereupon, I’m guessing that Apple will ship iOS ahead of the date the iPhone 4S — consensus is building that we won’t get the iPhone 5 this Fall — later in October, perhaps on the 14th or 21st, both of which are Fridays…
What’s your take?
