Apple sends out invites to October 22nd press event, iPads and more expected

ipad-event

“We still have a lot to cover.” So reads the invite being sent to members of the press ahead of a now confirmed October 22nd event at which Apple will unveil refreshed iPads, among other devices. The date is no surprise — it had been rumored since last week — but all that will be shown off is still somewhat of a mystery.

Starting with what we do know, the main focus of the event will be Apple’s new lineup of tablets. New products should include a redesigned iPad borrowing its cues from the iPad mini. It will likely include Apple’s A7 processor and could feature Touch ID. Those same specs could carry over to a new iPad mini, though the main feature anticipated is the debut of a Retina display for the 8-inch form factor.

It is also expected that Apple will announce public availability of Max OS X Mavericks alongside updated MacBook Pro laptops. We could also get an update on the overhauled Mac Pro first revealed at WWDC.

We’ll be covering the event live, so be sure to stay tuned here to iSource for all the breaking news. In the meantime, we’ll be tracking rumors and speculation in the lead up to the event. Hop on over to the iSource forums and join on on the conversation surrounding Apple’s upcoming announcements.
