Apple may announce new iPads on October 16

Apple may announce new iPads on October 16We have already seen the first Apple event which was held early last month and if the Cupertino giant continues its tradition, we will soon see another event, most likely this month where the company will unveil new iPads and the latest version of its Macintosh operating system.

In the past few years, the company has always kept a separate event for its iPad lineup and we expect the same this year too. Given that October has always been the month for a new iPad announcement, speculations and new reports are coming up on the internet.

While there are plenty of rumors predicting the date of the next event, Re/Code says that Apple will keep its iPad event on October 16. The website has been right about many of its predictions in the past, so this one too can turn out to be true.

Unlike the September 9th event which was a major event for the company, this one is expected to be much smaller. In fact, it is said that the event will be held in the company’s Town Hall venue which has less than 2000 seats available. So, the invite list too is going to be much smaller and those who are excited about the announcement will have to satisfy themselves by watching the online stream.

We do hope that the streaming works this time, unlike the Apple iPhone event where it stopped in between.

Even before the official unveiling of the iPhones and the Apple Watch, we had plenty of things to talk about the devices, thanks to the numerous leaks online. However, things have become very quiet after it and we hardly have anything new about the upcoming iPads and OS Yosemite.

This could be due to the smaller scale of the event and the update being not as significant as the earlier one. Experts predict just a minor update to the existing iPads which will be rebranded as the iPad 2014.  Some of the expected updates include an additional gold color option, Touch ID integration, Apple Pay and anti-reflective coating to make the display more readable.

The rumored 12.9 inch iPad Pro is probably the most exciting news that we have got about the event but some say that the device is still not fully developed and may not be announced on October 16.

We can also expect new iMac models with Retina 5K resolution screens and OS X Yosemite at the event in addition to the updates made to the iPad.
