iPad Mini, anyone? Apple sets 23 Oct event

It looks like the iPhone 5 wasn't Apple's last big debut for 2012.

Apple sent out invitations overnight for a special event that it's holding on 23 October, starting at 10am PT (4am AEST), presumably to unveil the much-rumoured smaller iPad model.

The tagline of the invite says, "We've got a little more to show you", and the invitation shows the top of Apple's logo.

Apple is holding the event at the California Theatre in San Jose, California, just a block away from the courtroom where its major trial with Samsung took place.

The invitation confirms a report from All Things Digital last week, which claimed that the event date would be 23 October.

Since before the very first model of the iPad came out, Apple has been rumoured to be working on a smaller version. But expectations that the company would double down on its iPad line have increased, especially after competitors like Amazon and Google began to put out smaller tablets that were a third of the price and brought in critical acclaim.

Recently, we saw leaked photos of an alleged finished product. And ahead of that, there was an email thread between some of Apple's top executives discussing the viability of a 7-inch model, unearthed during the Apple v. Samsung trial in August.

Along with an iPad Mini, Apple is rumoured to be introducing a 13-inch model of its Retina display MacBook Pro, as well as updated Mac Minis.
