Next Apple Event October 22nd!

 

 

Thanks to AllThingsD, we’ve got a date of the next Apple event! With announcements of new products and upgrades and wheeee!

 

(so far unconfirmed by Apple, but that’s pretty normal.)

 

Pencil it in kids: October 22nd, 2013.

 

The event will most likely focus on all things iPad, although Mavericks OS X and the new Mac pro will also probably get a look in.

 

The fifth gen iPad is expected to be announced, with more than a passing resemblance to it’s little bro the mini, with a thinner, lighter design and smaller side bezels ( the bits beside the screen).

 

It is also expected to have  a 64-bit A7 processor and an improved 8-megapixel camera.

 

Sahweet!

 

According to up and coming tech leaker Sonny Dickson – these are leaked pictures of the 5th Generation iPad next to the current gen.

 

 

 

 

 

The mini is expected to have a nice little upgrade, with similar 64-bit chip and camera improvements as it’s big bro as well as a retina display. FANCY.

 

Just a word of warning- According to some, the iPad mini won’t have much availability once it is released. Because it’s fancy, ya see.

 

There have been leaks (unconfirmed) that the upgraded iPads MIGHT come in the gold color seen in the much sought after in the iPhone 5S, and/or equipped with the Touch ID also seen on the iPhone 5S.

 

Both the 5th generation iPad and the upgraded iPad mini should be offered in Silver & Space Grey, if not Gold as well.

 

With the announcement looking like it’s 99% on October the 22nd, we’ll probably be seeing the launch of the upgraded products on November 1st.

 

In the tech world, the date of Apple’s fall event coincides with both Nokia’s Innovation Reinvented showcase, and the retail debut of Microsoft’s new Surface 2.

 

What do you guys think, are you excited about the announcement or over it for the year?

 

Will you get a new iPad or iPad Mini?
