AllThingsD is reporting that Apple will announce its so-called iPad Mini in October, according to several of their sources. Apple’s gearing up for two events for its new phone and tablet hardware, according to sources at AllThingsD.
The launch event will take place only a month after the iPhone event, which is supposed to take place on September 12, although Apple is yet to confirm that.
Unfortunately, the anonymous sources weren’t revealing anything further. Apple’s yet to confirm that posited September 12th event date, let alone any secondary event.
Initially, some postulated that the iPhone and the iPad mini events will take place simultaneously, although that seemed unlikely considering Apple has historically kept the two product events separate.
This latest news tells us that although Apple might not be willing to merge the iPad events with the iPhone’s, they are also not going to wait till next year’s main iPad event to release the smaller variant.
When ever it will be! just be assured that we’ll be covering both of them. And be sure to keep your eyes wide open to our home page.

Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference is about to start today and as usual, it’s a big industry event – one, which has seen the announcements of new iPhones, new iPods and iOS versions in recent years.
Eye-witness photos of the Moscone West convention center, where the event is held, show the place is being rigged up for tomorrow’s event. And the new banners confirm the highlight of the opening Keynote will be iOS 6, the next iteration of the mobile OS.
It’s good to know we’ll be getting another major release, but bear in mind the final version won’t come out before fall. Perhaps we’ll see several beta versions come out before that to give us a taste of what’s coming. We have a small roundup of the stuff supposed to go in the new release, but there will surely be a lot more.
What’s even more interesting is the things that were left out of the banners. Rumors suggest we might see certain developments in the MacBook series – unveiling of a refresh or even a complete discontinuation of the Pro series, making the Air the single MacBook in the lineup. Another expected debutee would be the final version of Mac OS Mountain Lion.
But whatever it is, you can be sure we’ll be here covering it for you as it happens, so stay tuned. The event’s keynote starts Monday, 6 p.m. London time.
