New MacBook Pros and iMacs may be debuting next month, according to multiple reports. Both may sport Ivy Bridge processors and, possibly, retina displays. MacRumors believes the model IDs are MacBook Pro 9 with an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7-3820QM quad-core processor running at 2.7 GHz, and iMac 13 with an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7-3770 quad-core processor running at 3.4 GHz.
Other rumors suggest: an “iPad Mini” in October with a 7.85-inch Retina screen; a 42-inch HDTV, dubbed iTV, with Siri-like voice controls; and a taller 4-inch screen for the next iPhone.
