Apple has just sent out invites to an October 23rd media event, following recent reports of an imminent “iPad mini” unveiling. The invitation hints that the iPad mini will indeed be the subject of the event, teasing, “We’ve got a little more to show you”.
According to The Loop, the event will take place at the California Theatre in San Jose at 10AM PST.
The iPad mini is rumoured to have a 7.85-inch display, making it smaller than the current 9.7-inch iPad, yet bigger than most popular 7-inch class tablets such as the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire. Recent SKU leaks have indicated that a whopping 24 new iPad models will be released, which may be a combination of the iPad mini and an updated iPad 3 with Lightning connector.
Apple is also expected to unveil some new Macs at next week’s event. The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display will finally make its debut, joining the larger 15-inch version that launched in June. An updated iMac with a thinner, ‘tear drop’ design is also expected, as is a minor Mac mini upgrade.
