Apple Reveals iPad Mini and 2 Other Big Updates
Apple execs reveals the specs for the new iPad Mini as well as the new Macbook Pro and iMac
After months of speculation, Apple unveiled its new iPad Mini today.
Deadline.com reports the new device has a 7.9 inch screen - almost two inches smaller than the previous 9.7 inch screen. It’s also 7.2 mm thick, which is less than one inch (0.284 inches) and about 25 percent thinner than the current iPad. The device weights 0.68 pounds. All of the software for the iPad will operate unchanged on the iPad Mini.
It wasn't all about the iPad Mini, though. Company reps also introduced a 13-inch MacBook Pro that is 0.75 inches thin and weighs 3.57 pounds, about 1 pound lighter than the previous version. A MacBook Mini, perhaps? The base model will retail for $1,699. A model with a 15-inch screen will start at $2,199.
