Just as the rumors last week predicted, Apple has confirmed another special keynote event for next Thursday, October 16. As usual, the event invitation doesn’t give much away, but this is expected to be the event where this year’s new iPad models will be unveiled – likely alongside new Macs and final preview of the latest version of OS X.
Here’s what 9to5Mac thinks in terms of iPad content at next week’s event:
We’re expecting new versions of the iPad Air and the iPad mini. The new Air will be slightly thinner, but come with a more efficient (and slightly snappier) A8 processor, new M8 chip from the iPhone 6, Touch ID, enhanced camera features, animproved screen design, and, of course, a gold color option. It’s likely that the new Mini will pick up some (if not all) of the Air’s new features. Hopefully at least the gold.
As the iPad mini is my preferred iPad size, I’m hoping it will get a similar level of refresh as the iPad Air. The good thing is, now there’s only a week to wait to learn all about this year’s new iPads.
