Suggests LTE iPad mini, fourth-gen iPad shipping soon

Late on Thursday, Apple issued updates to its MacBook models from June 2012, and made the iOS 6.0.1 firmware available to its LTE-compatible versions of the fourth-generation iPad and the iPad mini, suggesting the latter two devices will be shipping in the near future. The update for the MacBook Pro and Air models includes "graphics performance and reliability enhancements" as well as improving compatibility with some USB devices. The iOS 6.0.1 update issued today is only for LTE-compatible iPad models.

The MacBook update is for all Mac notebooks introduced in June of this year, which means the update is not needed for users who have purchased the 13.3-inch Retina MacBook Pro, which came out last month. Users with eligible machines can download the update directly from Apple's support web page or through the Mac App Store's Software Update mechanism. The file is 127.07MB in size.

The iOS 6.0.1 updates are available for both the GSM and CDMA versions of the iPad mini, as well as for the GSM and CDMA versions of the fourth-gen iPad.
