Apple has sent out press invitations confirming the previously rumored October 22 event date. According to AllThingsD, Apple will unveil a new iPad and iPad Mini model, and likely provide a release date for OS X Mavericks and the new Mac Pro.
The new iPad Mini is rumored to have a retina display, while iPad 5 is expected to be thinner and lighter and have an aluminum chassis that is similar to the design of existing iPad Mini models. Both devices are said to run on the new A7 64-bit CPU that was introduced with the iPhone 5S.
The event invite, shown above courtesy of AllThingsD (no, we do not get invited to that stuff), is vague as usual, with a brief tagline saying “We still have a lot to cover.”, and the event itself will be held at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.
If you’re in the market for a new iPad, iPad Mini, Mac Pro, or a new Mac in general, you may want to hold off a week to get more details about the new offerings. OS X Mavericks is a great improvement to the Mac operating system, the new Mac Pro should be very impressive, and the new iPad models will both be significantly improved as well. Stay tuned!
