Apple’s online store has gone offline and many have been wondering if it’s because of the release of the Retina iPad mini, which was rumored to be released on November 12th. However, it’s not certain that the new retina mini will make it’s debut today and it’s possible that the store could be down for other reasons. The retina iPad mini will start at $399 and feature 16GB of storage.
Earlier this week many websites, including AllThingsD, announced that Apple will be holding another special event on Tuesday October 22. The event is expected to be primarily about an update to the iPad line which will likely feature a 64-bit processor (A7), Touch ID sensor, and updated camera. Some rumors have mentioned that we could see the bezel of the iPad shrink even more in this next revision and we could possibly see an iPad mini with a retina display.
As of this posting, there are still no official announcements from Apple regarding this event and we also haven’t heard where they are planning to hold the event. As soon as official details begin to roll in we will be pushing out updates.
