This year Apple will celebrate six years since the release of the first iPhone, on June 29, 2007. The Original iPhone was introduced to the public earlier that year by Steve Jobs, during a keynote at the Macworld 2007 convention, in San Francisco.
An inside source from Apple (also confirmed by a third party) told Gizmorati that its both devices, the iPhone 5S and the iPad 5 will be unveiled during a special event called ‘Original Passion, New Ideas’, on June 29, 2013. This event is intended to celebrate six years from the launch of the original iPhone, under the leadership of Steve Jobs and the release of the iPhone 5S and iPad 5, under the leadership of Apple’s current CEO, Tim Cook, as both of these devices are developed entirely under Cook’s authority (Businessweek reports that iPhone 5 was the last Apple device to get the Steve Jobs’ blessing before production).
I believe that a large part of Apple’s success is due to the vision and popularity of Steve Jobs and after the recent disappointments like Apple Maps, AAPL stock price going down, weak sales (as TheVerge and Mashable reported) and Tim Cook’s approval rating falling, the company is trying to reconquer the public and reassure the investors, showing that Jobs’ passion and vision regarding Apple are still contemporary within the company.
Most probably this special event will take place at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. As soon as we will have more details about the release or any iPhone 5S or iPad 5 confirmed specifications we will publish them.
Do you think the ‘Original Passion, New Ideas’ special event will help Tim Cook and Apple, overall?
