Apple is renowned for not announcing release dates for their new products. But that just makes people talk about them more. Hmm, perhaps that’s intentional? (wink).

USA Today recently posted a nice article entitled What’s ahead from Apple in 2012? Here is a summary of their predictions:

Apple Product Releases

“If you’re thinking of buying an Apple device this year, or are in the market for a new computer then gather round as we tell you what you can expect and when we think you can expect it.”

I think you’ll find that the iPad 3 appeared in March 2012

Hi to your highness, the Duke of Edinburgh. Apple called the current iPad "the new iPad" rather than the "iPad 3". I assumed Apple considered this an update to the iPad 2 rather than a new version (ala iPhone 4S). I guess we’ll find out around March 2013!
