Apple to launch new iPads on 22 October
The new generation of Apple iPads could be launched as soon as 22 October, according to sources ‘familiar with Apple’s plans’.
Tech blog “AllThingsD” is reporting that Apple is planning its next invitation-only launch event that day, and that it aims to launch not just new iPads, but the new MacBook Pro, and a new desktop operating system – OS X Mavericks.
The fifth generation of the Californian company’s iconic iPad is likely to be thinner and lighter, with an improved camera and a more powerful processor – Apple’s much-vaunted new 64-bit A7 chip. Also expected is the second-gen iPad mini, which is thought to be being upgraded to use a “retina” display like its larger sibling.
