Apple expected to unveil 'iPad mini' at next week

Apple logoIn addition to a smaller iPad, Apple also reportedly plans to unveil a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display at a media event next week.

People familiar with the company's plans told John Paczkowski of AllThingsD that Apple will debut the redesigned 13-inch MacBook Pro at an Oct. 23 media event. The notebook will feature the "same thin chassis, all-flash storage, and a 2,560-by-1,600 pixel density display."

Pricing on the new MacBook Pro remains unknown. The current 13-inch MacBook Pro without a Retina display starts at $1,199.

The redesigned 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display was launched by Apple in June. It takes many cues from the popular MacBook Air lineup, including flash-only storage and the lack of an optical disc drive.

For customers who still need a disc drive or more storage offered by a traditional spinning hard drive, Apple continues to sell its legacy 15-inch MacBook Pro starting at $1,799. The 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display starts at $2,199.

The redesigned 15-inch MacBook Pro is said to have hit the market first because of apparent production issues with the 13-inch model. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI securities first said in July that Apple would launch a new 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro along with a redesigned iMac this fall.

Apple is expected to hold an event to unveil its smaller 7.85-inch iPad, unofficially referred to as the iPad mini, at an event next Tuesday, Oct. 23. Invitations making the event official should be sent out to members of the press tomorrow, as Apple typically gives one week's notice.

Over the weekend, a photo claiming to show internal components of Apple's redesigned iMac also surfaced online, suggesting the all-in-one desktop could also see an imminent refresh. Supply of Mac mini units at third-party resellers has also been constrained, which could be a sign of a product refresh.
