Report: Apple Is Holding an iPad Event October 22

By Leslie Horn on at

AllThingsD is reporting that Apple is holding an iPad event on Tuesday, October 22. Apparently, the focus of the event will be not only iPads, but also new Mac Pros and OS X Maverick.

AllThingsD has a pretty good track record with these things—it was right about the date of the iPhone event last month, so new iPads on the 22nd are probably a safe bet.

And what will these new iPads look like? Apparently the flagship Apple tablets are getting the same 64-bit A7 chip as the iPhone 5S, better cameras, and will be (shocker) thinner and lighter. The second-gen iPad Mini will reportedly get a better display and might get the A7 chip as well. Touch ID is one question that remains, but we'll hopefully get the answers later this month.
