Apple Introduces the iPad Mini, 13” Retina MacBook Pro, and More
Apple launched a number of new hardware products today, including a new iPad, smaller iPad Mini, a 13" Retina MacBook Pro, and a few new desktop Macs. Here's everything Apple released today.
The new 4th generation iPad is pretty much what you'd expect: it has a better graphics, a better processor, longer battery life (10 hours claimed), and even faster Wi-Fi. It also has a Lightning port for charging, as well its new Lightning-to-USB and Lightning-to-HDMI cables. They also released the long-awaited iPad Mini, which has a slightly different form factor (thinner and less wide than the regular iPad) and a 7.9" screen. It also has the same battery life and same screen resolution as the regular iPad, so all your apps should work without any updates (which is actually really nice).
Apple also introduced a new 13" MacBook Pro with a Retina display, a new Mac Mini with USB 3.0, and a new super-thin iMac. Both the Mac Mini and iMac have the added option of a "Fusion" drive, which is essentially a hybrid SSD that gives you SSD performance with hard drive-level capacities. They also released a new version of iBooks with continuous scrolling, which you can grab in the App Store.
You can check out all the devices in more detail on Apple's web site now. The new iPads are available for preorder on Friday for Wi-Fi models and two weeks later for LTE models. The 21.5 inch iMac is coming in November, and the 27 inch will be available in December. The Mac Minis and MacBook Pro should be available in the store today.
