AllThingsD has reported that the next-gen iPhone or iPhone 5 and the iPad Mini will launch at two separate events this fall, instead of the widely rumored September 12th reveal date for both devices.

According to the blog, the next generation iPhone will be announced on that rumored date, and the iPad Mini will launch after that date which according to their sources will be scheduled for October.

Darling Fireball’s, John Gruber was the one who originally posted the reports which suggested the two release dates, who thinks that the company would never unveil one product alongside another, as it might dilute attention from one of those products.

As always Apple declined to comment on the rumor, but we should find out a lot more within the next month.
