More apple news has leaked out ahead of next weeks event. I'm Jeff Bakalar filling in for Bridgette Cary, this is your CNET update. [BLANK_AUDIO] So at this point it's like why is Apple even having an event next week? We pretty much know every single detail there is to know at this point. Especially today as we're finding out apple may debut an iPad Pro and the iPad Mini 4 next week. According to 9TO5Mac siting trusted sources. A 12.9 inch iPad is almost ready for primetime. Full specs on the new iPads are a little light at this point, but if Apple does unveil them next week, look for them to be available this November. So while we don't have specific specs about the new iPads, the picture is much clearer on the new Apple TV. 9TO5MAc is also reporting Apple TV will rock an A8 chip. That's the same chip in the Iphone 6 and it will come in eight and 16 gigabyte offerings, starting at $150. The new Apple TV will also run in IOS 9 core and feature a newly designed remote that supports touch and motion controls. Look for the new Apple TV to focus on gaming as much as streaming content, but don't expect it to support 4K. All right, enough with the Apple news for now. Let's switch gears to Google. According to CNET reporters Roger Chang and Shara Tibken, Google will hold a Nexus event on September 29th in San Francisco. Google is expected to announce a smaller version of LG's Nexus phone, while the second largest flagship device, will be made by Wahweh, now say it with me. Wah-way. We don't know much about the specs of the new devices but they are sure to be running the latest version of Android 6.0 marshmallow. And finally Tesla has announced its pricing scheme for its electric SUV. The first run of model X are going to cost you, 132 thousand dollars. Just for the base model. Well that puts me, I want to say like 100 grand over budget but I guess the future isn't going to be cheap. I mean this thing comes with a feature called Autopilot. That's just what it's called Autopilot. So I guess I'm not too surprised. What is a bit surprising though is that the car is only going to get 240 miles on a single charge Which isn't as good as other Tesla models. So, where is that magical $35,000 Tesla that everyone's always talking about, the model 3? Well Elon Musk said in a bunch of tweets that preorders will begin Again, March of next year.
