Apple’s October 23rd Event: What To Expect.
As we told you last week, Today is the day Apple is scheduled to unveil its much-anticipated ‘iPad Mini’. The Event will be held in California at 10am Pacific Time (1pm Eastern and 6pm West African Time).
We know a lot of you are excited to see what Apple has to show us and we can’t wait either and want to give you a heads up on what to expect from the event.
We’ll start from the Star of the Event, which is the iPad Mini:
The 7.85-inch 4:3 screen iPad will be the centre of attraction today. We hear that it will have the same resolution as the iPad 2 at 1024×768 resolution and might not include a Retina display but Apple might surprise us. We also hear it will be as thin as the latest iPod touch. We will give you more details about this device once it has launched so stay tuned. The iPad is said to start at $249.
iPad with Lightening Connector:
In the heat of the rumours, prices and shells for the third generation iPad surfaced with a little addition to them, yes a lightening adaptor instead of the 30 pin adaptor. Maybe with this opportunity Apple could also chip in LTE to the iPad as well.
13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display:
A lot of questions went around after Apple launched the Retina display MacBook Pro in only the 15-inch model. A few days ago images popped up on the Internet of what was reported as a 13-inch MacBook Pro. The images are below. You can tell this is a 13-inch because of the absence of the speaker grills at the side and we can also tell this is a Retina display model because of the thinnest. Lets watch out and see.
Mac mini and iMac upgrades:
The Mac mini and iMac will receive internal upgrades like a boost in RAM and maybe better graphic chip but we don’t know if the Mac mini will have any physical design change. We hear the iMac will, let watch and see.
iTunes 11, iBooks 3.0 and Education:
iTunes 11 was announced back in their September event and we think it will finally go live today.
To position the iPad even more in Schools, iBooks 3.0 and Educational pricing will be discussed today.
Apple has made available live streaming from Apple TV.
We will be tweeting live as the event starts so you can follow and interact with us at @technesstivity. Stay tuned!
