The sources have also claimed that iPad 3 trial production will begin in the month of October, which will probably continue till the end of this year. Apple has ordered some of the key hardware components from its manufacturers, source said.
Apple may not launch an iPad in the upcoming media event, but there is no need to get disappointed as they might treat everyone with a couple of phones (iPhone 4S and iPhone 5) as well as the fifth generation iPod Touch.
