Retina iPad Mini among expected news from Apple

Tech Industry
-Hello and welcome to Inside Scoop. I'm Sumi Das, joining me is Senior Writer for CNET, Josh Lowensohn. Josh, thanks for being with us. -Yeah, my pleasure. -Doing something a little different today. We are in a specific location at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts because tomorrow at this time, what's gonna be happening in here? -Chaos. Organized chaos. -And you'll be a part of it. -Yes, we're gonna be there of course. We've got a few people going inside right here, it's gonna be ground zero for probably new iPads and new Macs and some new software too. -Okay. Let's talk specifics then. Let's hit the iPads first. We're probably going to see not a different size of the iPad but some finer-- finely tune features. Yeah? -Yeah. The big expectation is that we'll see a bigger iPad that look a lot more like the iPad Mini with rounded corners and thinner kind of that portrait style or the edges aren't as thick. -Right. -Also what we're expecting is the Retina iPad Mini. -Yeah. -This is the thing we didn't get with the first generation iPad, you know, we have that first kind of 1024 by 780 kind of display that looked okay but it wasn't quite up to par with some of the other devices. So, we're expecting something very sharp. -And if you're excited about that iPad Mini with the Retina display, you should probably act quickly if they announce it because-- -Yeah. -there's another report that's surfaced, right? -Yeah, there have been a couple reports floating around that suggest that it's gonna be a limited supply. It's the same kind of thing happened with some older products that have come out with Retina displays where, they were kinda hard to get it first. -Right. -I don't think we have a good indication with that but the fact that they're launching that probably alongside in updated version or older version of the iPad Mini, means it could be short, yeah. -There's still a question mark about whether or not we'll see a fingerprint sensor carrying over from the iPhone. -Yeah and reports are kinda diverging on that. Some had suggested that we'll only see it on the full sized iPad not the Mini. I kinda think that if they are gonna put it on the iPad, it will come to Mini too because that's really a device that people carry around with them. -Right. -And that's the kind of thing where you do want a password on that and it just makes a lot of sense. -Quickly. Yeah. Okay, and it's not just iPads tomorrow, though, they're probably gonna cover some other ground because this is the last Apple event before the holiday season kicks in the year. -Yes and Macs are almost assured that we got the Mac Pro, which is their big weird tube-like desktop tower. -Yeah, the Darth Vader type. -Right. We still don't have a price or release date on that. We're probably gonna get both of those things tomorrow and some of the people I talked to, some of the analysts suggested it could be like $2800 to start or even higher. So, this is definitely gonna be a high high-end machine. The question is if Apple will price it down cheaper. -And it's not just going to be a hardware, there will be some software news too possibly. -Yeah. We're expecting a full price and release date for Mavericks which is the next version of OS X. I think we're also expecting some new iLife software and iWork software for the iOS. Some of the details about that leaked out over the weekend. So, I expect the Apple to update all those things this week. -All right. You will be inside. You will live blogging the whole thing so we won't miss a single detail. Is that right? -Yeah, we'll have live photos and videos. It all starts at 9 AM with a live video show. -Okay. So, just go to CNET for more information. Josh, thanks for chatting with us. -Absolutely. -For Inside Scoop, I'm Sumi Das. Thanks for watching.
