Two Apple events in two months! A person could get used to this.
With the words “We still have a lot to cover,” Apple fired up the masses when they sent out their invitations confirming the October 22nd event that was first leaked by AllThingsD.
Yes, that’s right, Apple will host their second event in two months. This one will take place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater located in San Francisco. It is set to commence Tuesday at 10 a.m. Pacific, noon Central. This time it will not be about the phones.
The invitations, as seen to the right, are a very fall-like and contain the image is of the traditional Apple logo found at the bottom. In the background one can see many multicolored leaves (the iconic Apple leaf) floating up to the top. The tagline “We still have a lot to cover”is found at the bottom and suggest that this event will unveil a lot of new products.
Rumors have it that these products include their new iPads, the features and availability of OS X 10.9 Mavericks, and the new MacBook Pro. Speculations are also floating around that they may introduce a smartwatch (the iWatch) as well as an update to Apple TV.
It is projected that the “belles” of this ball will be their two new iPads, reports say both will support the new 64-bit A7 chip. The first is the second generation iPad mini that will likely feature Retina display. It will also reportedly have additional power and a longer-lasting battery that will make it a little heavier than its predecessor. The other is their fifth generation iPad, which will get a makeover and boast a thinner and lighter design as well as an improved camera. It is uncertain as to whether or not the new iPads will contain the new Touch ID fingerprint scanner that was first introduced in the iPhone 5S.
Improvements to the MacBook Pro will include more battery life – possibly hitting the 12-hour mark – as well as a better processors.
Unfortunately, we were not on the invitation list and will not be able to attend the event in San Francisco to either confirm or debunk the rumors firsthand. But we will keep you updated with all the latest ‘tech-gossip’ revolving around the event as that day approaches as well as a complete summary following the event including what and when the products will hit the marketplace.
