Apple is set to release iOS 8 later today, followed by the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus later this week, but if new iPads are on your wishlist you might not have to wait much longer.
An iPad event has reportedly been planned by Apple for October 21st, according to the Daily Dot’s Micah Singleton, who says the official launch date of OS X Yosemite will also be announced at the event.
“Apple plans to unveil the sixth generation of its iPad and the third edition of iPad mini during the event. OS X Yosemite, a complete visual overhaul for the Mac, is slated to be released immediately after the event.”
While we can’t verify the accuracy of the October 21st date, Apple does usually host its iPad events in October to provide a fresh update ahead of the holiday shopping season. Last year’s iPad keynote was held on October 22nd, so it’s likely that if the date doesn’t fall exactly on the 21st, it will occur the week before or after.
The two new iPads are rumored to sport upgraded internal components like the A8 processor, better cameras, and an anti-reflection coating for easier reading. OS X Yosemite was announced alongside iOS 8 on June 2nd at Apple’s developers conference, but it’s release isn’t slated until later this fall.
