AllThingsD is reporting that Apple is to unveil its much-rumored iPad mini at an invite-only event on October 23rd. Beyond the date there aren't too many new details to take out from the article; AllThingsD says its sources declined to say where the event will be held.

Recent reports have been in agreement that we should expect a 7.85-inch iPad with Apple's new Lightning connector, and an "ultra-thin" design. If you'd like to know more about what exactly Apple's new iPad might be, check out our iPad mini rumor roundup.
