As enticing as it might be right now to buy a new television, you shouldn’t do so.

It appears that more than just the tip-addicted iOS fans out there are getting their fair share of iPhone 5 madness as Apple stock this week hits an all-time high.

iPad Mini to borrow iPod touch style tip prototype insiders

Apple's iPad Mini takes styling cues from the 4th-gen iPod touch rather than the new iPad, sources supposedly familiar with the latest tablet prototypes have claimed, with production expected to kick off in September. Sales of the slate will begin in time to monopolize the holiday shopping season, Macotakara's insiders say, complete with WiFi-only and 3G/4G models. Even at the rumored price premium over the Nexus 7, meanwhile, analysts reckon Apple would have a multi-million seller on their hands by the end of the year.

iPhone 5 LTE release date tipped via Qualcomm shortage

This week it appears that the next generation iPhone 5 may have been inadvertently tipped by Qualcomm's quarterly earnings call via a supply issue warning for analysts tracking their mobile chipsets. The chipsets that are, in particular, seeing a strain on supply at the moment are their new 28-nm modem chips made to power the next generation of LTE speed devices.
