If you haven’t already been saturated with everything Apple given the recent announcements of the the new iPhones, the Apple Watch and iOS 8 last night, then there is some more fun coming your way very soon. It was rumored for a while that the iPhone event will be closely followed by the iPad launch, and looks like that would indeed be the case.
The Daily Dot has published a report which has stated that Apple is set to hold another event on October 21st, where it will in most likelihood introduce new iPads and OSX Yosemite. Apple had introduced Yosemite at WWDC earlier this year, and it is expected to roll out to the users post this event. It is not clear whether we will see any new Macbooks or not just yet.
In terms of the tablets on offer, Apple is expected to bring the iPad Air 2 and the next generation of iPad Mini with Retina display. It is expected that the non Retina version of the iPad Mini will be discontinued. The iPad Air 2 is expected to be even slimmer than the iPad Air and feature a Touch ID like the iPhone 5s or iPhone 6/ 6 Plus. It is expected to be powered by the Apple A8 chip, which incidentally also powers the newer iPhones. The iPad Mini is also expected to get the Touch ID as well as an 8 MP camera.
No official confirmation has come from Apple announcing the event, but it is only about 7-10 days in advance that the invites are sent out, so its all about waiting and watching.
