We wouldn’t call this a long time coming, but we would call it “just another Apple launch”. Hello and welcome to the iPad Mini launch event, live from California.

Here’s what to expect: a 7.85-inch iPad with among other things, a Lightning port. There’s also the hope that it’s going to come in at the same US$200 price as the Nexus 7 and other 7-inchers. There’s reportedly going to be a slew of new software updates such as iBooks and iTunes 11 and the 13-inch Retina Display MacPro too.

Apple’s iPad Mini event starts at 10am PD and 7pm African time
