Apple has started prepping the California Theatre in San Jose ahead of the special event on October 23, with Macrumors posting pictures of the exterior and interior of the building. Preparations still seem to be ongoing, but the colourful spy images show that they’re certainly underway and progressing nicely. On the inside, we can plainly see theatre’s poster frames that have been plastered with three Apple logos having green, orange and blue background. The company usually posts colorful graphics signifying its events at the site. Here are some pictures of Apple’s swanky signage at California Theatre:
It’s the first time in seven years that Apple has used the historic venue to introduce a new consumer device. Back in 2005, Steve Jobs announced the first video iPod and TV shows in the iTunes Store. In October 2004 as well, Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs took the stage with the members of legendary Irish rock band U2 to introduce the iPod U2 special edition.
No one have a good idea of what Apple has planned to launch – but a number of leaks (and Apple’s own invitation) suggests that Apple will announce 7.85-inch iPad Mini, iPad 3 with smaller lighting connector, 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, refreshed Mac Mini, iBooks 3.0 and more.
Apple’s special event is going to be pretty big. We’re going to be covering the whole event, so be sure to follow this link and watch everything unfold starting at 10 AM PST on October 23.
