The newest iPads could make their debut later this month.
According to CNN Apple is planning an October 22 press event to show off the latest additions to its iPad line, according to AllThingsD’s John Paczkowski, confirming an earlier report in Current Editorials.
The announcements are expected to include a redesigned, thinner iPad and a Retina display iPad Mini. The devices would likely pack in the usual incremental improvements that mark each new generation of Apple mobile devices, including better cameras and faster processors. Apple’s fancy new fingerprint technology might also make an appearance in the new iPads.
Apple has held a press event every October since 2010, announcing products that ship just in time for the holiday rush. Last year, Tim Cook introduced the iPad Mini, the full sized iPad with Retina display, and some new Macs.
It would not be unusual for the company to mix in some Mac news with the iPad announcements.
