Apple's 'Special Event' Confirmed for 16 October – iPads Anyone?

By Matt Hill on at

The heavily rumoured next Apple event is definitely on, with invites going out to international media this afternoon.

While Tim Cook and co's US showpiece is to be held at the Town Hall Auditorium in Cupertino, the UK Giz team will be attending the European event in the Apple Store on Berlin's Kurfürstendamm.

The typically sparse and cryptic invite reads simply "It's been way too long" above a detail of the multi-coloured apple logo that can't quite fit within the message.

An iPad Air Mini on the cards? Because the Air's "too long"? OK, we're just plucking it out of thin air now, but here's our rumour round-up if you want to gen up in preparation.
