Apple’s event on 23rd October 2012: What to expect!

Apple will be having an event on 23rd October 2012 on 1p.m (1 a.m 24th Oct 2012 for Malaysia) which will focus on some “little” things like the invitation below suggested. They have a little more to show us and we are expecting the iPad mini. What else? But along with that, we also expect some other minis like the new Mac mini, 13-inch MacBook Pro with retina display (mini is a way) and some other announcement. Read on for more!

click here to see what else the invitation suggest!

 

iPad Mini:

The likely star of the event will be the iPad Mini. The 7.85-inch 4:3 screen will be the focus of the attention but the $329 (hopefully below RM1000) starting price that we revealed will draw a lot of attention.  We expect the same 1024×768 resolution as the iPad 2 but, at $329, Apple could probably squeeze a Retina Display with the same PPI as the iPhone 4+ on it. As for internal specs, that $329 price point means that Apple doesn’t have to skimp on specs. Expect a very fast A5X or A6 (perhaps built on a smaller die).

We also expect this to be a centerpiece for education initiatives that will be showcased at the event. The thin, lightweight design, huge iPad apps and iBooks libraries and other features will make this thing a no-brainer for students. It wouldn’t hurt Apple’s cause to have some big name universities signed up for the launch.  We’ve already heard about big school discounts being planned as well as some new cases.

iPad Lightning:

We’ve also seen prices for and shells of a third generation iPad with Lightning adapter instead of the 30-pin adapter. We don’t know all of the details but can speculate that Apple could take the refreshing opportunity to upgrade the LTE chip to a lower power version and could even upgrade to a thinner screen and battery, thereby making the new iPad as thin as the iPad 2, if not thinner. A smaller SoC die could also cool things off and require smaller batteries.

Apple did a refresh on iPad 2 last year with a faster chip around this time. This wont be a replacement or the next generation model or it will piss off all the people who bought the iPad 3. Prices will remain the same for the new refreshed iPad.

13-inch Retina MacBook Pro:

Another major product to be unveiled at tomorrow’s event is the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display that we told you about earlier this month. The update is expected to mirror the 15-inch Retina model introduced in June with a thinner and lighter enclosure, two configurations with different processor and storage options, and is expected to be available to purchase shortly after tomorrow morning’s unveiling. Our sources also indicated that, like the 15-inch MacBook lineup following the Retina model’s introduction, Apple will keep the current non-Retina version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro at current prices. The 13-inch Retina Macbook Pro will of course be priced slightly higher than the current 13-inch lineup. We have also received pricing details for the device, with the base model coming in at $1,699 and the higher spec model at $200-$300 more. You can convert the price yourself if you are interested. But this is certainly an highly anticipated product for this event!

Mac Mini:

A refreshed Mac mini lineup is also likely to make an appearance tomorrow. We’re not sure how much of a focus the the minis will be with the other big announcements, but there is a possibility they will be mentioned alongside the education announcements that many expect. We do, however, have details on the upgraded models. The new Mac minis will likely keep similar pricing, starting at $599, of the current models, but will also receive RAM upgrades allowing for up to 16GB. Apple will offer two configurations for the new Mac minis and also keep a third OS X server model. Other possibilities include updated chipsets and USB 3.0.

iMac:

As noted above, at least some of the new iMacs we told you about previously might be seeing a bit of a delay, but it’s unclear what that means for their presence tomorrow. We know Apple has two refreshed models for the current 21-inch and 27-inch variants, but we have also heard at least some varieties of the new models will not be ready to ship directly after launch. As for what you can expect in the upgraded iMacs, we have discovered upgraded RAM options allowing for 2 x 8GB of RAM, which would allow for up to 32GB across the iMac’s 4 slots. Our sources expect to see similar pricing to the current iMacs (starting at $1199), with slightly cheaper pricing for some countries on the higher spec models. We sure hope that the iMacs will be announced in the event. It will make the event awesome!

Education/iBooks 3.0:

While rumors that we will see iTunes 11 release tomorrow aren’t too shocking given Apple announced an October release date back in September, there is a possibility Apple has some software related announcements in store. With iPad mini’s $329 price point and Tim Cook’s promise to be aggressive at getting iPads into schools, it’s likely we will see an education focus during the presentation. A few reports have heard the same, and we recently saw “iBooks 3.0″ listed for a book on iTunes. We wouldn’t be shocked to see enhancements to iBooks and or apps/textbooks designed specifically for the 7-inch display demoed by Apple execs. The iBookstore today became available in 17 more countries, a fact that probably won’t go unnoticed tomorrow.

Other small stuff:

There are at least two more iOS cables Apple will release tomorrow.  We believe that these could be VGA/HDMI video adapters, new camera kits or they could be docking connectors (though Schiller said no iPhone 5 docks).  We’ll likely know before the event starts.

Apple will likely announce and/or release iOS 6.01 with various bugfixes and enhancements. (YAY!)

It is also interesting to note that Yerba Buena, where Apple often holds its events, is available for tomorrow’s event. If so, it would indicate that Apple chose the California Theatre – a movie theater – for its size or other features. That might make for an interesting show. We might find out why they actually decided to choose the California Theatre for this event.

Apple sends out event invitations. What is the hidden message this time? iPad Mini’s name confirmed!

 

Apple has recently sent out invitations to it’s event this 23th October 2012. We are very sure that the smaller iPad will be showcased in this event together with some others which we are not very certain of. But the likes of a new 13 inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, refreshed iMac and Mac Minis might be possible to be on stage this coming event.

Everytime Apple sends out event invitations, they will have a hidden message in the invitation that will hint on what will be happening on the event. For example, the iPhone 5 event invitations have a shadow of the number 5 which hints that the iPhone 5 is coming. For the new iPad invitation, a blurred large Retina Display icon is cleverly hidden in the background. But this time, we cant say much about the invitation. Except for the wordings that comes with the invitation that says “We’ve got a “little” more to show you”. This might be the hint that something little will be showcased on that event! Like the iPad mini? LOL

And we have also noticed that the Apple logo forms a big “m” on the invitation which also hints to iPad “m”ini. So we can conclude that the naming is now confirmed! And such a colorful invitation might hint that the iPad mini will come in various different colors like the new iPod touch. That will be cool!

We will know all of that on the 23th of October 2012. For local time, the event will be happening on 1AM on the 24th October 2012. Stay tuned to littlegeeko as we will be updating you during the event! Have a good day!

 

The upcoming iPad mini might just look absolutely fantastic

The iPad mini’s announcement is around the corner and we all expect it to be unveiled by Apple in this month. Most probably mid October 2012. We have seen most of the leaked part of this device and they do look good in some of them. And it is highly anticipated because we all expect it to be a rather cheap tablet by Apple. Who doesnt want to own an iPad? Right? Especially if it is that cheap!

Martin Hajek who was famous for his accurate concept design of the iPhone 5 earlier last month has made some wonderful iPad mini concept designs and we hope these are as accurate as what he did for iPhone 5.

Here are some of his gorgeous designs:

The iPad Mini Will Probably Look Like This, And It’s Beautiful [Gallery]

These designs look rock solid, and based on the rumor mill, there’s a very good chance Apple’s upcoming tablet will look almost exactly like what Hajek has imagined. Make sure to head over to Gizmodo to check out all of Hajek’s work in glorious high resolution.

Hajek even design the iPad mini to come with cool blue color which looks something like the blue we have for the new iPods. But for us, if the iPad mini really comes with a black back casing, it will be just awesome. Or rather, droolsome!!
Tell us what you think about the designs and the iPad mini!

 

Next Generation iPhone will be released on Sept/Oct 2012 [Rumor]

A Japanese site Macotakara reported that a “reliable source” claims that Apple’s sixth-generation iPhone will be released in either September or October of this year.

Apple always have at least 1-year before announcing a new product of the same category each year except for last year with the iPhone 4S where it was announced only after 1 year and 3 months after iPhone 4. So a September or October release for the next iPhone is very possible.

But we cannot really predict the release date of the iPhone because Apple have once broken the rules with the iPhone 4S release.

BGR reported last December that Apple was set to release a “completely redesigned” iPhone in the fall of 2012. Other sources, including iMore’s recent report that pegged the upcoming iPad 3 announcement, have also suggested an iPhone announcement during the same timeframe.

We are sure it will be a different device in terms of both design and internal hardwares including the software but we have no idea how will it look like. But we will be very happy to have something like the concept picture above.
