iPad mini and wifi iPods head for October iTunes event

This afternoon it would appear that not only has the name "iPad mini" been tipped once again, a couple new iPods have been updated as well. According to Asian sources speaking with Macotakara, the new iPad will have a 7.85-inch display and will indeed be called the "iPad mini." A couple new iPods will be popping up at the same event as this iPad mini, each of them with the ability to connect to wireless internet so that they might connect with iTunes in the Cloud.

This next Apple event has been tipped as taking place in mid-October, this far enough away from the supposed September iPhone 5 event that it'll make full use of the "second wave" effect. One wave of iPhone action, several weeks pass, and the fun starts all over again with so much iTunes in the Cloud action that you'll be unable to contain your wallets contents at all whatsoever! This October event has taken place in the past at right around the same time, here coming in 2012 with a smaller size and price to make it a perfect iTunes media machine.

The iPod touch has had wi-fi connectivity for a while now, but a new one may be coming at this event with a new micro dock – the same 16-pin dock connection that the iPhone 5 has been tipped to have. There may well be a new iPod nano as well, here coming with its first connection to the web via its own wi-fi ability. With this, users will be able to use iTunes in the Cloud with great success.

Have a peek at the timeline below to see what else may be popping up in the next few months from Apple. We're expecting a whole new mobile range, with the standard iPad also getting a small update. This update will also include the new mini dock connector.
