A new report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo outlines his estimates to Apple's product launch schedule for the second half of 2012, where he notes we should see an all-new iPod touch and iPod nano models, as well as a new iPhone and iPad mini models, and tweaked internals for the full-sized iPad.

Kuo's report also mentions Apple's Mac range, where he believes Apple will launch their 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro in the Sept-Oct time frame. He notes that the launch of this 13-inch Retina MBP would be a little on the quiet side, because it would launch close to the new iPhone and iPad mini models:

We think consumers who initially planned to purchase the 13" MacBook Pro and Air will turn to the 13" Retina MacBook Pro instead because it has an attractive panel, its price is similar to MacBook Pro and it has a better balance between power consumption and form factor. However, as supply is limited due to panel and assembly yield rate issues, shipment of the 13" Retina MacBook Pro won't be able to satisfy demand. And we think consumers' budgets will transfer to new iOS products after Apple launches them, which suggests that overall MacBook shipments will not grow meaningfully on the 13" Retina MacBook Pro.
