Are you talking about the Apple "leak" that says to expect the iPad 5 in the Fall?

See there! Even Apple can be wrong about the date. T-38 days!

It came a day late. And not from Apple. MS just announced their announcement of when they will announce the Xbox will be released.

WWDC June 10th, almost certainly we'll see a Mac Pro release. And probably also some iOS7 announcement.

I think afv011 is referring to Tim Cook's comments:

http://mashable.com/2013/04/23/apple-no-new-products/

Quote:
Apple's CEO Tim Cook suggested during the March quarter earnings call Tuesday that the company will not be releasing any new products until the fall. "Our teams are hard at work on some amazing new hardware, software and services we can't wait to introduce this fall and throughout 2014," Cook said.

When asked to clarify later in the call whether this meant no new products would come during the summer, Cook remained somewhat vague. "I dont want to be more specific, but I'm just saying we've got some really great stuff coming in the fall and across all of 2014."

Ehhh... what does Tim Cook know?

Seriously, they should put something out there. This is not good for Apple's image. From the article (my emphasis):
Quote:
If true, this isn't just disappointing to consumers aching for a new Apple product, but also for investors. It has been more than six months since Apple held its last big launch event for a new product — the iPad Mini in October. With no new products on the horizon, investors and analysts have filled the void by speculating about the company's decline. Apple's stock dropped from more than $600 when the iPad Mini was announced to less than $400 earlier this month.

Considering reverting to pages for apps. at least when you swipe through you can see them better. On the phone, also, its a PITA (more so, really, because the icons and text are even smaller). Think I might just use a folder on the last page for apps I don't use and can't delete.

Surprised and annoyed. I had only bought "The new ipad" 6 months before, and already it was out of date. Still using it, however, one simply cannot update every single time.

Android allows you to put the same app in multiple folders. Wish Apple would do the same thing.

2014 is next year.
It does imply nothing coming in 2013 until the fall.

If they release updates every 6 months, they get criticized for releasing products too quickly and milking the userbase. If they don't, they get criticized for not releasing products fast enough. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

What, this is not 2014?? I must have been using the wrong calender..

Don't feel bad. I'm still using the Original flavor iPad 1. It won't even run OS 6, and a couple of my apps require OS 6 for an update.

I have a feeling that when iPad 5 does come out, it will be running on OS 7.

Yes, I wish Apple implemented an equivalent to shortcuts on PC/Mac that would allow me to put the same app on different screens or in different folders. I have tried to find an iOS app to do that, but the ones I found just didn't work as expected, or seem to create a shortcut on the iPad that will launch a web link that will launch an app, which kind of tickles my paranoia, plus it's not very useful when you're not online, which happens to me frequently.

Since reading the comments about folders on this thread, I have embarked on a complete reorganization of screens and folders on my iPad. Now it's a complete mess and I can't find anything.
