The day has finally come. Apple has mailed out invites to the press for an event scheduled for October 23. As it stands, October 23 is the currently rumored day that the iPad mini was to be unveiled at an Apple event. The invitation even says right on the page "we've got a little more to show you," which screams iPad mini.
But it also screams Mac mini update as well as an update to the Retina MacBook Pro's little brother. It seems as though Apple is planning to stuff a Retina display into the smaller 13-inch form factor as well as bring the Mac mini up in line with the rest of the Mac line by stuffing an Ivy Bridge and USB 3.0 inside.
Of course, you can expect the usual flow of news from TweakTown as the event unfolds. I'm expecting the new iPad mini, or one of the other devices rumored to be updated, to be coming in many different colors as the invitation features a rainbow-like smattering of color behind the top of the Apple logo.
Of course, only time will tell. All of our questions should be answered next Tuesday.
