According to iMore's sources – ones they claim have proven accurate in the past – Apple is planning to unveil the iPhone 5 during a special event that'll be held on September 12th, with a release date to follow 9 days later, on September 21. The iPad mini, along with an all new iPod Nano (and likely iPod Touch) is set to be announced as well during the same event. From what iMore is hearing, the iPad Mini will be exactly the same as the 9.7″ big brother, only sized down to 7.x inches. A recent rumour had pegged the smaller iPad to feature a 7.85″ IGZO screen and a $250-299 price tag.
Meanwhile, iLounge has also published a report this morning providing a number of juicy tidbits regarding the release of the new iPhone and other iDevices. Here's what their “highly reliable source” is saying:

If you missed Apple’s new Genius oriented ads shown during the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics in London, here they are. The 30 second ads feature the same Apple genius character, who in various humorous situations, goes to the extra mile helping Mac customers in distress. The first (above) is dubbed “Mayday” and is my favorite of the bunch:

Japanese repair site iLab.cc have posted a handful of images of what apparently is a fully assembled iPhone 5. They’re among the most in-depth look yet of the next gen iPhone that have been circulating around the web over the past several weeks. Very similar to a previous leak of shots taken, these latest ones also show a two-toned design, a repositioned facetime camera (now sitting centered above earpiece) and earphone jack (bottom left of device), the long rumoured smaller dock connector and of course, the slightly larger (4 inch) screen. And as first reported by iLounge, iLab’s photos suggest a visibly slimmer body, which could directly be attributed to Apple supposedly using the all new in-cell technology for its display. More up close and personal images of the iPhone 5 after the gap.
Update: Macotakara have posted a video (below) of a very similar looking iPhone 5.
