Updated 9.7-inch iPad with Retina display improved internals, Lightning connector on the way; no price changes

“Apple will announce a refreshed version of its full-sized, 9.7-inch Retina display iPad at its media event October 23rd, according to our sources,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.

“These people say that the new version of the iPad will retain the same $499, $599, and $699 WiFi-only price points, and the LTE line will retain the current $629, $729, and $829 pricing,” Gurman reports. “With no price changes or additional storage capacities, we believe that the storage options of 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB will also be retained.”

Gurman reports, “We expect this new iPad to gain the smaller Lightning connector.. Also likely in the mix for this tweaked iPad is global LTE support, just like in the iPhone 5… Also coming at Apple’s October 23rd event are new Mac minis, new iMacs, and a 13-inch version of the MacBook Pro with Retina display.”

        1. Here is the menu for our 5-star crow dish prepared by Chef Daniel Boulud Crowbar:

          Crow pie with lashings of crow sauce accompanied by crow potatoes

          Ice cream crow flambeed over a dash of crow whiskey

          Crow with a twist of lime

          Crow chocolate with sprinklings of crow droppings

  1. Considering the “source” is just a tiny site, not something like AllThings Digital, the reliability of this information is low.

    This could be easily made up to gather clicks and raise advertisement income.

  2. Apple is keeping major pressure on the competitors by not allowing anyone to get ahead of them in any significant way.

    This and other rumored enhancements lead me to believe that Google and Microsoft must double their expenditures and internal expertise if they expect to significantly gain any market share from Apple.

      1. Updated to 16.0.1 – Still broken the same way I’m afraid. Nice try though.

        I’m running 10.5.8….. hahaaa just got a pop-up warning me FireFox is no longer supported on my OS. It’s telling me I’m now vulnerable to on line attacks. Nice. Time to switch to Solaris….

  3. More memory! More memory! I keep erasing Apps and podcasts on my 64-gig so I can fit more slideshow photos for my desk at work. I am scanning a footlocker of photo albums on my 512-gig Retina MacBook.
