Apple will not release iPad 3 at Macworld or CES

Reports began circulating earlier today that Apple would release two new iPads at Macworld Expo in January. These rumors are completely false.

I checked with a number of my sources today and an iPad 3 is not planned for release at Macworld. In case you’re wondering, an iPad 3 won’t be released at CES either.

You can also mark a TV off your list for either one of those shows too — it’s not going to happen, according to my sources.

An Apple spokeswoman declined comment.

Apple withdrew from Macworld Expo back in 2009 and has not attended the show since. In fact, Apple has withdrawn from most, if not all, tradeshows in the last couple of years.
