New iPads! Mark Your iCals For Apple's October 22 Event

0 comments

Just when you'd returned from camping out for a new iPhone 5S comes the news that Apple will hold an event on October 22, when it will reportedly debut the next generation of iPads. According to AllThingsD, we could see slightly smaller iPads that take design cues from iPad Minis, meaning a thinner and lighter body and a slimmer bezel. The 9.7-inch screen, however, would remain the same size. It'll allegedly run Apple’s new 64-bit A7 chip, just as the second-generation Mini could, though CurrentEditorials reports that it will be the A6 instead. The Mini, at the very least, is expected to get a Retina Display upgrade, according to AllThingsD. The new Mac Pro and OS X Mavericks might get some love at the event, too.

While the date has not been officially confirmed by Apple, several commentators have pointed out that October 22 is also the date of a major Nokia launch and marks the arrival of Microsoft's Surface 2 on retail shelves. The plot thickens. (AllThingsD)
