Apple has unveiled a 7.9 inch iPad boasting a ten hour battery life, and capable of running all existing iPad applications.
Local pricing for the iPad mini starts at $369 for the 16GB wi-fi version, and tops out at $729 for the 64GB LTE version. Wi-fi equipped versions begin shipping on November 2.
The new device comes in both black and white, with a similar body finish to the recently released iPhone5.
Enterprise app developers expect the device to prove popular for field sales applications.
The company also announced a fourth generation “big” iPad, with a faster processor, and the company’s new Lightning connector.
The fourth generation device is also compatible with Australian LTE networks.
A new design iMac, a revised Mac Mini, and a retina-display 13-inch MacBook Pro were also announced.
