Apple has sent out invites to the press for a special event on October 23 to be held at the California Theater in San Jose. This is actually a change from regular Apple event that are held either at the Yerba Buena Center of Arts and the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Apple is expected to unveil the rumored iPad mini, which is expected to have a smaller 7.85-inch display with a resolution of 1024×768 pixels, a dual-core A5 processor, and a lightning connector.
Apart from this, Apple is also expected to announce a 13-inch version of the MacBook Pro with the Retina Display. Rumors about this event have been rampant and 9to5Mac even suggests that Apple may even launch a revised version of the new iPad with upgraded internals that will include the new ‘Lightning Dock connector’.
