The ‘iPad Mini’ Event Could Also Launch 13-Inch MacBook Pro With Retina Display And More
While much of the attention in recent days has focused on the so-called “iPad Mini,” other new Apple products could also launch very soon. One of those could be a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, according to 9to5Mac. Even before Apple unveiled the iPhone 5 on Oct. 12, many were reporting that Cupertino would hold two events this fall. Now, with the iPad Mini launch event likely on Oct. 23, we’re beginning to hear more about what those other products could be.

As such, it will look much like the 15-inch MacBook Pro that Apple launched in June. Additionally, 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.” Also possible at this month’s event are a modified iPad, and a new 27-inch iMac. Also, iTunes 11 could make its appearance at the event. At the iPhone 5 event, Apple unveiled the sixth generation phone, iOS 6, and new versions of the iPod touch, iPod nano, and iPod shuffle.

Until then, stories like this are only rumors. As per usual, we’ll keep you updated.
