Although the iPad mini may be a toss up because it uses Apple's in-house processor, an MBA with Retina screen won't pop up until Intel releases Haswell (and after it's been on the market). Compared to Ivybridge, it's expected to increase CPU performance by roughly 10% and double GPU performance. Furthermore, TDP is expected to be anywhere between 10-65W for the mobile variants, another boon.

Of course, it's certainly feasible right now to give the MBA a retina screen, but not if you want to greatly sacrifice battery life. Haswell will fix this.

Bullcrap. I do believe we'll see a new iPad Mini upgrade next fall along with iPad 5 and iPhone 5s. Judging by the iPad mini design, I'm assuming the iPad 5 will have similar design which I love, by the way.

Knowing the retina madness that apple is getting into, I'm sure the next iPad mini upgrade will indeed have retina display.

I'm just saying.

Apple TV could be pretty awesome. Check out this opinion.

It's all there, every show in a search-able database in the iCloud.
Then when she finds it and shows it to you, you tell Siri to record only new episodes and skip the Ads (for reruns).

I miss the Jan 2013 MacPro update.

And the Apple TV thing ... I am afraid it's not going to take off or it will be dull effort.

These 'business insiders' just go on the macrumors forums and read all the 99 speculation threads in the iOS section and then write an article about it so that macrumors can then repost it and all the posters think their speculations are validated.

A little article about Gene Munster and why you shouldn't take his predictions seriously:

I suspect this may have been said earlier in this thread, but iPhone 5S in September just doesn't makes sense. iPhone market share is falling fast. Apple can't afford to wait till September for a minor upgrade. 5S better come in March, 6 in October/November.

I predict the following:
  • Apple will release an iPad Mini with retina display around March 2013
  • The iPad Mini with retina will not take the place of the iPad Mini without retina - kind of like the iPad 2 and iPad 4 existing together
  • The iPad Mini with retina will cost approximately $50 less than the iPad 4 - similar capabilities, similar price

I just don't see how Apple can go a whole year, or even next summer, without releasing something for consumers to buy.

Agreed. A retina mini is *not* going to happen in March (though, I too would buy one, even though I have a mini!). Apple just moved the iPad full sized launch to Autumn to take advantage of the holidays, but also to ensure holiday gifts aren't outdated 3 months later. They won't do this with the mini.

You mean the speculation regarding consumer products which come from a company with the largest market capitalisation on the planet? Strange, especially since they don't pre-announce every product before availability. It boggles the mind.

No way the MBA is getting a retina display. It's already underpowered trying to drive the pixels it has now.

Clearly you have not used both iPad 3 and 4 in the same seating.

The retina MBA should have been October 2012. June is late in the game, the screen competition has already passed up apple by miles.

Maybe you haven't heard- apple doesn't care about pro users anymore. They cater to consumer levels now.

Plus, there's no way they are going to be able to power the display for 7 hours unless they come up with some amazing new battery technology.

Do not forget the new Mac Pro and Thunderbolt Display, together with wired USB 3 keyboard (hub) and mouse.

The integrated graphics chip handles Retina just fine. I'd say Battery life is the biggest concern, the GPU is not.

For better or worse, the Mac Pro just doesn't have the interest to move stock prices. Apple could announce tomorrow everyone's wish list for the Mac Pro, shipping January 2nd, and it wouldn't cause a blip on the stock price. (Well, if we exclude insanely low price from everyone's wish list.)

All the products he listed, should they happen, could have an impact on the stock price. Most up, an iPhone 5S might push down.

Exactly. And, selling the iPad 4 and buying an iPad 5 won't be much of a wallet hit. Especially if you can unload it about a month before the official iPad 5 announcement.
