Today at the Apple event that's going to take place starting at 10AM PST there will more than likely be an iPad mini to be pumped about, but before then, the MacBook Pro with Retina display at 13-inches must be shown - and it's leaked. This leak comes from 9to5Mac where they've got essentially the full run-down of the models that will be available later today. That's another unconfirmed factoid in this situation, mind you, that the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display will indeed be up for sale by the end of the day online.
A collection of 6 new cables and adapters has been leaked today before the big Apple event including a new USB power adapter that's up to 12W instead of the standard iPad 10. This update points toward a faster-charging iPad mini and/or iPad 3 refresh and a power supply potentially more powerful than the already massive component in the iPad 3. This listing comes from 9to5Mac where they've also got a showing of a 60W Magsafe 2 power adapter, this likely aimed at a new Retina MacBook Pro.
Apple's online store has been taken down for updating, ahead of today's "little" event, with the expectation that a new iPad mini along with a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display are being added to the virtual shelves. Meanwhile, SlashGear is warming up the liveblog machine, ready to bring you all the details of what's announced as they're revealed.
Images surfaced on the Chinese website Weiphone showing internal components and ports on what is claimed to be the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro. The (mostly very tiny) images show off connection ports along the right and left sides of the laptop, as well as a snapshot of its display, which shows the machine running Windows 7. It's anticipated that Apple will unveil the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro at its event next week.
The folks at Apple have been tipped to be bringing on the 13-inch version of their lovely Retina-quality display-toting MacBook Pro soon, and with a price tag that jumps $500 over the non-Retina version of the device. The 2,560 x 1,600 pixel display on this device was reported as having started production earlier this year - in August, to be precise - and the announcement of the notebook will quite likely be appearing at the Apple event coming up on the 23rd (next week.) This notebook will almost certainly have the same specification upgrades that the Retina MacBook Pro had in its original iteration as well.
Today it's time to get busy packing for the next big Apple event, set for October 23rd and quite likely to reveal no larger an iPad than a mini. With the iPad mini on peoples' lips and in their dreams now for several months (or years, for some), it comes as no surprise that the device will be revealed just in time for the holiday season. Now we've just got to hypothesize on how many other devices - or device refreshes - will be appearing as well.
Many rumors have been floating around over the last several months about an Apple event being held soon for the unveiling of an iPad mini. Exactly, when or if that event will be held is still unconfirmed as far as official invitations being sent out from Apple. Despite the fact, rumors for the next event continue to build.
Welcome to Thursday evening, folks - just one more work day and the glorious weekend is here once again. This afternoon we heard that both the iPad Mini and the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro - neither of which officially exist yet, remember - have been delayed due to problems with component yields, but not long after, analysts were saying that the MacBook Pro with Retina Display is still on track to launch this year. Apple has managed to delay the ban of the iPhone and iPad in South Korea, and we learned that the company's new dock connector is nearly impossible to mod in a new teardown.
Earlier today, we reported that Apple's rumored iPad Mini and 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display were getting a delay because of low yields of certain materials needed for the devices. However, while we don't know much about the status of the iPad Mini, it's said that the new 13-inch MacBook Pro will still be on target for a launch this year.
Apple's not even close to slowing down the number of new products they have in the pipeline, but it looks like the production itself is slowing down a bit due to some rumored production issues on Foxconn's factory floor. Apple's upcoming iPad Mini and 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is said to be delayed from the production issues.
Three 3rd-party modified MacBook Pro units were put up for sale this week in limited iterations including a customized top lid with Steve Jobs's own visage reflecting deeply in the Apple logo. The proceeds from each of these notebooks, each of them created by the Apple customizers at Uncover, will be sold for 9500,00 Euro, aka right around 12 thousand bucks here in the USA. This set of three units will be sold with all proceeds going to a couple of charities you're just going to love.
