Possible fall iPad Mini and iPhone 5 launch means no September slump for Apple

Apple’s going to have another killer holiday quarter this year. Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White believes that the company will have an “exciting” September, as it’s set to unveil both the next generation of iPhone alongside a rumored 7″ iPad mini. White based this prediction on discussions with sources close to Apple’s supply chain in Taipei.

Most have been expecting an October launch for the next iPhone, as this is when the iPhone 4S was introduced, and a launch window for the iPad mini was previously unknown. If both devices do in fact launch in September, well ahead of the holiday season, it could mean the best quarter on record for the most valuable company in the world. Topeka Capital Markets has a 12-month stock price of over $1,100 for Apple, which would make the Cupertino Giant the first company with a $1 trillion valuation.

If the launch rumors hold true, September is shaping up to be a great time for Apple fans looking to get their hands on the next great Apple creations. We should be learning more about the iPhone 5 and iPad mini in coming months, perhaps at WWDC later this month. Stay tuned!
