Rumour: Apple Event For New iPads and Haswell-Powered iMacs Will Be Oct 15th

By Gary Cutlack on at

Apple might be about to refresh its desktop Mac and iPad ranges next month, with rumours suggesting a new gathering of the faithful is scheduled for October 15th.

According to some admittedly rather vague rumours reported on French blog MacG, shops are running down their stock levels of iPads and iMacs ahead of the mid-October announcement of refreshed ranges. It suggests Apple might be announcing that the new Macs will run on Intel's new fourth-gen Haswell architecture as you might expect, which would trigger mass upgrade fits among Apple computer fans.
