New iMacs, Mac & iPad minis tipped for October 23rd

As mentioned by CNET UK, Apple’s insiders, the birds flying around the Foxconn factory and people involved in the Apple supply chain, we can say there will be plenty of upgrades for the Cupertino based fruity manufacturer. With the new exciting one being smaller iPads.

Apple’s tiniest computer, the humble Mac mini, is rumoured to be getting a much-needed refresh alongside the launch of the fabled iPad mini.

9to5Mac reports the new Mac mini units will come in two sizes, with varying processor and storage options. That’s exactly how the Mac mini is served up now, although both current models have the same 500GB of storage as standard.

True to form, Apple is reckoned to start shipping the new mini Macs immediately after unveiling them. Speedier processors and USB 3.0 ports would be smart bets on any refresh, and flash storage on the cheapest models would be a welcome addition.

 

Meanwhile Macrumours spotted a Chinese forum thread that points to a new iMac, that’s said to be much thinner than the existing model. There’s a photo that supposedly shows some internal components too.

The iPad mini is tipped to be revealed in a week’s time, on 23 October, so that’s likely when we’d see any other kit updated. Miniaturisation and Macs could well be a theme of Apple’s rumoured shindig — a 13-inch version of its retina display MacBook Pro is also expected to be revealed.

    About freakin’ time! I have been waiting over 1 year to buy a new Mac Mini. Not a single Mac in my house can run Mac OS X 10.8, so this is a much-needed upgrade.

      My 2011 mac mini runs 10.8 just fine. :-) You must have fairly ancient equipment.
