MacRumors Roundups for iPad Mini, 13-Inch Retina MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Mini

Last month ahead of the iPhone 5 launch, we rolled out the first in a new series of "Roundups", designed to be a one-stop location for readers to catch up on our up-to-date thoughts on Apple's upcoming product releases and updates.

We will be continuing to update each one in the days prior to the event, and will continue to add new roundups for additional products over time.

These took a lot longer to get out then we had originally anticipated. There are also still a few bugs in the system (such as forum tab integration). Hoping to get these out much more ahead of time in the future.

Awesome rumour round up.
Just one little note. You don't know 100% for certain Apple will release an iPad mini. No one outside of Apple does. It's just a very good educated guess at this point in time.

I fixed up the MacRumors image too. Just so everyone knows how it really is. I don't blame MacRumors though. Everyone can make a mistake. They are only human. Just fixing up their little mistake.


English spelling.


US spelling.

I put both in as this is a US based website and people might prefer the US spelling here.

How has the Apple wristwatch not been rumors for this event? It's coming, mark my words.

I'm still a bit skeptical. Why would they release 2 iPads in one year? I believe that it's coming, but right now? hmmmm....
Why would you be skeptical? We have 11" and 13" Airs and 13" and 15" MacBooks, people want options! Now we'll have 7" and 10" iPad.

Apple is late to the 7" market which apparently quite a bit of people want. Just look at some of the more recent articles/forum threads, a decent amount of people saying at the right price they'd easily pick one or more up. I personally find my iPad 2 heavy after a bit of use. Not to the point where my arm is sore, just to the point where I'd maybe consider a Mini in the future.
