The screen is also said to have an anti-reflective coating, which allow for better viewing in sunny conditions. There is anticipation that a refresh to the iPad Mini will be revealed. The Mini will most likely fall in line with the changes that are expected to come to the iPad Air. An iMac with Apple’s patented Retina display is expected to be unveiled during this event.
