Take a look at more photos:
A pair of images published by Apple.pro on Sunday reportedly demonstrates two Lightning dock connectors, one for Apple's much-rumored iPad mini and another bound for the fourth-generation 9.7-inch iPad. The connector is more compact than the current third-generation iPad's 30-pin flex cable. Unfortunately, the image's poor quality doesn’t allow assessing the connectors in detail.
According to The Korea Times
9to5Mac offered their suggestions related to the entry price point for Apple’s upcoming smaller iPad set to be released October 23rd. The entry price will be reportedly between the base model of the new, fifth-generation iPod touch ($299) and the currently shipping WiFi-only 16GB iPad 2 ($399). So, the base model of the smaller iPad will likely be priced at a minimum of $329 in the United States. A starting price of $329 makes sense. The new iPod touch will continue to be cheaper than Apple’s new tablet, while the smaller iPad’s pricing will also be nicely spaced under and between the new full-sized iPads.
Earlier we heard reports that Apple didn’t use Sharp’s IGZO display tech in the iPad 3 because Sharp’s technology was not ready in time. According to
AppleInsider and 9to5Mac independently posted a list of 24 different model numbers said to be for Apple's "iPad mini" scheduled for introduction at a media event next Tuesday.
According to the list, the iPad Mini will be available in four basic device variants P101, P103, P105, and P107
that presumably correspond to different hardware models (Wifi, 3G, LTE, etc). Each of those four variants is available in three different flavors designated "GOOD", "BETTER", and "BEST" - these ones refer to three different capacities (anything between 8 and 64 Gb). The A/B designations would continue to refer to two color options.
Apple has officially announced a media event for the much rumored iPad mini scheduled for October 23rd. Apple today sent out invitations to the press.
Apple is expected to show the new 7.85-inch iPad Mini, new iMac, new 13-inch Retina MacBook and new Mac Mini. We will certainly do online live blog from this event.
Apple is planning to update the Mac mini at its expected October 23rd event, according to 9to5Mac.
Alongside the smaller iPad, Apple plans to announce a new version of its Mac mini. Sources say that these Mac minis will come in two standard configurations, with different storage and processor options, and a third model that runs OS X Server.
These new Mac minis are said to begin shipping immediately after announcement. Apple last redesigned the Mac mini with a unibody aluminum enclosure in 2010, and last updated the computer with faster processors last summer.
According to a
“The new 13-inch MacBook Pro will be sold in two configurations, with differing processors and storage, and will be available for purchase soon after introduction. Like with the 15-inch MacBook Pro lines, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display will be sold (at a higher price) in addition to the current non-Retina display model”.
While Apple has not yet officially sent invitations to press, AllThingsD writer John Paczkowski is saying today that the invite-only iPad mini event is still scheduled for this month. According to the report, the event will likely be held in Apple’s Town Hall Auditorium on October 23:
Apple will hold a special event this month at which it will showcase a new, smaller iPad. People familiar with Apple’s plans tell us that the company will unveil the so-called “iPad mini” on October 23 at an invitation-only event… Sources declined to specify where the event is to be held, and I’ve not been able to confirm a location.
Earlier this month The Wall Street Journal
Martin Hajek has created some nice renders of the expected 7.85-inch iPad mini for Gizmodo. Take a look:
“According to my source, iPad mini was started production in Brazilian factory. I don't have information if it has been produced in Chinese factory, yet”.
