Apple Roundup: iPad Mini, iMac, Steve Jobs

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) --Tuesday's top Apple (AAPL - Get Report) chatter mentions more rumors about the iPad Mini and its price; the potential launch of the next-gen iMac may launch in a few months; and the appearance of a candid Steve Jobs interview on iTunes.

Rumors continue to persist about an iPad Mini. If Apple does release a smaller tablet at the reported price pointof between $249 and $299, it could be a death blow to the others in the tablet industry, according to Chinese-language website MyDrivers.

The tablet reportedly would be 7.85-inches in size, down from Apple's 9.7-inch form-factor and would be as thin as the iPad 2.

Apple could not be immediately reached for comment about an iPad Mini.

Apple is reportedly getting set to launch the next version of its iMac in October, and its supply chain is starting to ready parts for the computer, DigiTimes said.

Apple's all-in-one computer could potentially feature Retina Display, but it's a costly feature, so this may not happen right away. This feature could happen in 2013, when costs are more reasonable, the report said.

The last Apple news item of the day is that a rare Steve Jobs interview has surfaced for rent on iTunes. The interview dates back to when Jobs was running NeXT and Pixar.

The interview was conducted by ex-Apple employee Robert X. Cringely and costs $3.99 to rent for U.S. iTunes users.

Shares of Apple are higher in Tuesday's trading, up 1.05% to $598.73.
