Apple just unveiled its iPhone 5 over one month ago, and now the company is preparing to roll out even more products before the holiday season.
A number of Apple developments that were expected to be revealed last month were noticeably absent from the company’s most recent keynote, such as the rumored iPad Mini, a 13-inch Retina Display MacBook Pro, a refreshed iMac, and more.
“We got a little more to show you,” Apple’s event invitation teased, perhaps alluding to the debut of a “little” tablet.
Although the Cupertino, Calif.-based company has not officially announced an iPad Mini, rumors and speculations about the mini tablet's features have been circulating the Web for months.
The tiny slate is expected to have a 7.85-inch screen with both 3G and 4G connectivity, and rumors have suggested that it will be a miniature version of Apple’s iPad 2, in that it may not feature a Retina Display. The iPad Mini is expected to fall within the price range of $249 and $299, putting it at a slightly higher cost than competing 7-inch tabs from Google and Amazon.
