Fresh rumours tip 22 October Apple iPad launch

Apple will introduce its next-gen iPads at an event on 22 October, according to AllThingsD.

The tech blog says that the event will focus on new iPads, but attendees will likely get a glimpse at the new Mac Pro and OS X Mavericks, too.

ATD was not able to confirm a location, but Apple's Cupertino headquarters or the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco are two main contenders.

ATD has a strong record when it comes to getting the inside scoop on when Apple will hold its launch events. It correctly reported that the iPhone 5S/5C event would be on 10 September, but has also been right on past Apple events, too.

If accurate, Apple is following a roll-out schedule similar to the one it executed last year, when it launched the iPhone 5 in September and the iPad 4 and iPad mini a month later.

Recent rumours tip a next-gen iPad that takes its design cues from the iPad mini, as well as a mini with a Retina display. There were reports recently, however, that suggested the Retina iPad mini will be in short supply due to manufacturing limits.

On the non-iPad front, the final version of OS X Mavericks was recently released to developers, suggesting that Apple's newest OS will debut later this month.

Meanwhile, Apple showed off a preview of its revamped Mac Pro at WWDC in June, so it's due for a more complete demo on 22 October.

If the past is any indication, invites for the 22 October event will likely go out early next week, so stay tuned.
