There was a rumor that Apple will announce their next-generation iPad in an event on October 22. That arrow of rumor hits right on target as Apple has sent out the invites of the event which will be held in San Francisco Hall at 10AM Pacific Time on October 22.
Apple has not specified what hardware/devices it will be introducing. This event will be mostly Mac centric. We might see the new MacBook air and MacBook pro. But as a rumor has spread out, we will probably see the nee iPads – iPad 5 and iPad mini 2.
Earlier today, an image of the iPad 5 was leaked which confirms the presence of the TouchID sensor in the home key which looks same as the one in iPhone 5s. The iPad mini is supposed to launch with the Retina Display. But we’re not sure whether it will receive the spec bump or not.
There still a week to go, so we might see some last moment leaks of the new devices. We still don’t know if Apple will stream the live event or not. But we will keep you posted on whatever gets unveiled at the event.
