Apple’s iPad mini event round-up: everything you have to know!

The iPad mini event is over and much have been talked about especially on all the products Apple introduces in one event! We have a list of products Apple shows to the world in the event and iPad Mini, the long awaited iPad Mini is one of them. Yes, there are also iMacs and MacBooks. Chill.

Everything about the event was awesome, but there is only one let down when Apple introduces the iPad 4th gen. The 3rd generation iPad is just out for 7-8 months and we all expect Apple to have a minor refresh on the iPad (like what happened to iPad 2 last year) but the refresh is too much to be considered minor. This will make some iPad 3 owner to be pissed but some says they would be happy with their iPad 3 and saving on lightning adapters.

Rather than going all over the internet for all the post about the Apple event, we found an awesome round-up of the event by Cult of Mac which gives a complete round-up of the event. Enjoy!

Here’s everything that Apple announced at today’s keynote:
