"We still have a lot to cover," read Apple's invite for the event that's taking place Tuesday in San Francisco. As execs prepare to take the stage, let's take a quick catalog of all that could be mentioned, based on what's due for a refresh, and what's been in the rumor mill.

First, the likeliest stuff:

  • A new 9.7-inch iPad with a thinner, trimmer design, similar to the iPad Mini's
  • A new iPad Mini that looks pretty much like the first one, but with a better "Retina" screen, whose pixels you can't see
  • A slightly upgraded MacBook Pro with Retina screen
  • The previously revealed Mac Pro desktop system (the one that looks like a jet engine)
  • OS X Mavericks, which was revealed in June with a fall ship date
And here are the maybes, other products that may make an appearance, however unlikely:
  • Last year's iPad Mini, which could stay on as a cheap alternative to the new Retina Mini
  • Apple TV, because Apple seriously needs to put an app store in that thing sooner rather than later
  • iPods, because it's weird for Apple to have a fall event without even mentioning its once-beloved media players
Now, let's list what you probably won't see on Apple's Tuesday laundry list:
  • An iWatch
  • An iTV
You probably also won't see:
  • An iCar
  • An iBoat
  • An iPlane
  • An iUFO (though that would be pretty wild)
