Tuesday News Roundup

A few items of news ahead of the Apple Event tomorrow:

  • 22.5 hours to go ’til the Apple product launch.  Not that I’m the least bit interested.  MUCH!!
  • The first rumour to appear today is that the new iPhone could be on preorder as soon as THIS Friday;
  • Right now, the Apple Developer Site is down, which is typical because I need to log in;
  • Mockup pictures of an iPad Mini have emerged online today;
  • We may see a new iPod Touch tomorrow, with a 1136 x 640 display;
  • That new Apple 9-pin connector has been dubbed ‘Lightning’, the new earbuds I spoke of a week ago are called ‘Earpods’ and there’s a new ‘Loop’ accessory coming for the iPod Touch.

Remember to pop back here for 6pm BST (1pm EST) tomorrow for a live-ish blog from the Apple event in San Francisco.  If you want a no-nonsense Blog without all the “here’s a picture of me outside the Centre” and “here’s X sat outside with his MacBook looking wistful and gorgeous” then join me for tea and toast and absolute zero bullshit at 6pm.
