“Mini” is the new black, if the latest Apple hardware rumours are to be believed. Two long-rumoured, small-statured, Apple products, the iPad Mini and 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, are being tipped to land on the same day, according to a new report from 9to5Mac.
A “consistently reliable source at a high-profile US retailer” has pooh-poohed claims that the devices will each headline separate events a few weeks apart, instead stating that Apple will pull both highly-anticapted devices together for one product showcase.
9to5Mac have also been told that the new Retina MacBook will come in two different configurations, with pricing dictated by the power of each configuration’s processor.
As for the exact launch date of each product, we’re still none-the-wiser. The latest rumours tip the iPad Mini unveiling to be on 23 October, with the device landing in stores a few weeks later. If this rumour is to be believed, you could expect the smaller Retina MacBook Pro to be available before the year is out.
