Analysts have a mixed record of being able to guess Apple’s next moves. Topeka Capital Markets analyst, Brian White, however, is out with a new report tonight in which the industry assessor puts forward his beliefs that Apple may be set to introduce the next iterations of both its 9.7-inch iPad, (and newly introduced 7.9-inch “iPad mini”), this March.

As we continue to detail the very latest technology to be announced at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, we’re drawn to the recent announcements made by Seagate. Seagate is also based in the heart of Cupertino, California, and is currently one of the world’s largest manufacturers of hard disk drives.
Compared to the first half of this year, however, the second half of 2012 was a less successful time for Apple on the public stage. We begin our story on July 1, where we brought you an article, entitled “Just How Good Is Siri?” Written by our own Andy, Apple’s intelligent assistant had been around for about 9-months at the time and had received mixed reviews.

There’s a report floating around this afternoon which cites Jefferies’ analyst, Peter Misek, as claiming Apple’s next iPhone could launch as early as next June-July. While Apple did show little disregard for the people who jumped on its third-generation iPad announced back in March, (announcing the fourth iteration of the product in October), we highly doubt the company is gearing up for an iPhone launch next Summer.
