No delay of iPad 2 and iPhone 5?

Just yesterday, there were a pair of analyst reports that suggests Apple's upcoming iPad 2 and iPhone 5 will see a delay on their launches due to "issues" with production. But now, there is a chorus of denials on those claims.

Barron's and Reuters are now refuting the claim that the next-generation iPhone 5 and the upcoming iPad 2 is delayed for shipping and will arrive consumers' hands later.

According to The Loop's Jim Dalrymple, these claims of delayed iPad 2 and iPhone 5 launch are simply untrue. While he did mention that he does not know when the next-generation versions of Apple's flagship iOS devices will be available, he explicitly mentions that any "delays" are false and everything is going like clockwise on Apple's side.

From what I've heard this morning both products are on schedule and will ship when they are supposed to. Only Apple knows exactly when that will be, but the products are not delayed.

In addition, Dalrymple goes on to note the phenomenon of "delays" for products that haven't even been announced to the public.

It seems amazing that rumors of Apple missing product deadlines are running rampant when Apple hasn't even announced the product yet. The only deadlines that have been set are by the media, not Apple.

Having said that, the iPhone 5 and iPad 2 are not delayed.

Without delays, Apple is expected to launch the next iPad between March and April, and June-July window for the next-generation iPhone.
