Apple will be following up last month’s iPhone-centric special event with another keynote address, this time devoted exclusively to updated versions of the iPad, reports AllThingsD. The event is likely to take place on Tuesday, Oct. 22 and will focuses primarily on some new hardware features for the company’s fifth generation iPad, its iPad mini and may even provide hints for when the new OS X Mavericks operating system will roll out.
The extent of the updates has been left entirely to speculation at this point, though Apple news website MacRumors, which just about nailed all its predictions for last month’s iPhone event, has offered some new details based on company supply chain leaks. The new iPad with Retina Display will probably mimic the thinner design of the companion iPad mini, and it could also get smaller bezels, a better camera and the 64-bit A7 processor that made its debut in the new iPhone 5s. The iPad mini will likely get a processor upgrade and could even get a long-awaited Retina Display screen of its own. Apple has yet to comment on its plans for the event.
