Now that all of the chaos of Apple announcements has settled, here is the recap.
Apple introduced the iPad Mini officially. A lighter 7.9 inch iPad that will include FaceTiime HD, faster wireless performance and 10 hours of battery life. The new Lightning connector is also featured as well as the option for cellular data plans. The Wi-Fi edition will begin at $329.
A surprise to most was the addition of another full size fourth-edition iPad. The device will feature an upgrade of a few features including the A6X chip, faster wireless capability and the conversion to the new Lightning connector as well. The fourth-generation iPad Wi-Fi edition will begin at the same price point as the last at $499.
Unfortunately those that purchased the third-generation iPad a mere seven months ago were handed news that their tablet no longer exists for purchase as the iPad 2 remains for sale along with the two newest in the iPad lineup.
A few other new products were announced including an interesting Fusion Drive and updated iMac and MacBook Pro. Their full details can be found here.
Both tablets will be available for pre-order at the Apple Online Store on October 26th and arrive in retail stores on November 2nd.
