We reported last week that Apple would be conducting an event on October 16th to unveil its new tablets but at the time there was no confirmation from the company. That changes today. Apple has sent out invites for an event which will take place on October 16th and while the invite doesn’t say much about the products it is going to unveil, rumor has it that we’re going to see the iPad Air 2 and the third generation iPad mini.
One announcement that Mac users will be particularly waiting for is of the OS X 10.10 Yosemite release. The new software was first unveiled back at the Worldwide Developers Conference 2014 and since then it has been in beta stage. Apple is expected to formally announce the public release of Yosemite at its October 16th event.
Apart from the new iPads the company is also expected to unveil new iMacs with one that may even have a 5K display. Whether or not we’ll get to see the 12-inch MacBook at the event as well remains a mystery.
As far as the new iPads are concerned they’re both believed to come with Touch ID fingerprint sensors with support for Apple Pay, the new payments service that the company announced at its event last month. Both tablets will reportedly be thinner and lighter than their predecessors and powered by Apple’s new A8 chip also found in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Pricing and availability information will obviously be revealed on October 16th so lets just sit back, relax and wait for the day.
