Apple has now officially sent out invites to a 22nd October event, where they say “We still have a lot to cover”. It is widely expected that this is the date we will get the first official looks at the next generation iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2, amongst other.
The primary focus of this event is almost certain to be about the next iPads. Trying to read something into the invite there could be quite a few announcements made on the day, besides the iPad news. Those announcements could include new Macbook Pros, the Mac Pro, the OS X 10.9 Mavericks, and perhaps there’s even some news around the Apple Tv and an Apple smartwatch.
