appleApple has started mass production of a smaller and cheaper version of iPad tablet computer. The cheapest iPad starts from nearly $400. 
Asia-based LG Display and AU Optronics have already began manufacturing the LCD screens for Apple's new device in September. 
Apple has kept the screen size of its iPad unchanged at 9.7 inches since the product debuted in January 2010. 
In comparison, a smaller Apple tablet will feature a 7.85-inch liquid-crystal display with a lower resolution than the latest iPad. 
The launch of a smaller iPad is seen as Apple's move to stay competitive against rivals such as Google and Amazon, which have introduced 7-inch tablets at just $200. 
Apple is rumored to be sending out press invitation for a special event, which might be on Oct 17 to unveil a smaller iPad. 
Apple has not yet commented on the reports.
