Apple gives the users that bought something right before the new model a chance to return it and get the newer product. Apple does have a limited return policy because their retail stores can't discuss new products until the day they are announced.
Even Apple's Retail Sales people don't know what is going to be announced until the day of the announcement.
Everything you read is speculation.
What do car mfg do when they announce a new car? NOTHING. They sell what's on the lot and when a new model comes out, when it comes out, then you can buy the new model. So, what's the problem. ALL companies that constantly come out with new products are going to sell you what they have.
Do you think Google is going to tell EVERYONE not to buy their current product? NO typically.
If I had talked to Google, I would have just told them I going to buy the iPad Mini and not buy their Nexus whatever because I want something with a REAL eco-system, not just some wannabe eco-system. And then hangup and laugh. Google is a joke. They really don't design any of the hardware, they just pick from standard components the basic specs and then ASUS does the rest and sticks Google's name on it. BIG DEAL. Nothing special going on with Google hardware, and I STILL can't figure out what IDIOT left out the camera on the Nexus 7, that was just boneheaded on a product like that.
