Apple rumors: new iMacs, Mac minis, more


Here are the latest Apple rumors from the blogosphere:

“A forum thread [Google translation] posted to Chinese site earlier this month claims that Apple is planning to introduce its next iMac at a press conference either this month or next month, with the new iMac offering a redesigned body with a thinner profile. The report includes a photo of what is said to be the logic board and other internal components of the new iMac.” — ‘MacRumors” (

“Alongside the smaller iPad, Apple plans to announce a new version of its Mac mini. Sources say that these Mac minis will come in two standard configurations, with different storage and processor options, and a third model that runs OS X Server.” — “9to5Mac” (

“A source at a high-profile US retailer has reportedly confirmed that Apple will be adding a 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro to its notebook lineup at an event later this month. The new 13-inch MacBook would join Apple’s 15-inch model in bringing Retina technology — which first emerged with Apple’s iOS devices — to the notebook space. While the announcement — indeed, the very existence of a late-October event — has not been confirmed by Apple, the unveiling of a 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro would be in keeping with previous predictions.” — “MacRumors” (

“Amazon is reportedly looking to bolster its mobile device division by purchasing the smartphone chip division of Texas Instruments.” — “AppleInsider” (

“A set of images released on Sunday reveal what is claimed to be Google’s anticipated Google Maps app for iOS, suggesting the internet search giant is well into the process of developing standalone software after Apple ditched its mapping services with iOS 6.” — “AppleInsider” (

“Is this why Apple moved its iPad mini launch? Cupertino just might be playing hard ball with one of its major rivals.” [“So what happened this time? My guess is Microsoft happened. Apple’s event is now rumored to be two days before the respective Windows 8 and Surface tablet launches. Is this is coincidence? No way. Not in my opinion.”] — “Fortune” (
