Apple October 21st Event for new iPads and OS X Yosemite

With the release of the iPhone 6 it was anticipated that Apple would also launch the new iPad Air. This was mentioned in passing but considering the new iPad announcements and Apple tradition, a new report states that revision to both iPad models will be unveiled on October the 21st. This would include the OS X Yosemite 10.10 for the Mac on the same day.

Apple’s second biggest event of the year will take place on October the 21st, allowing the Cupertino company to follow up the iPhone 6 launch by focusing on its prized tablets. There is also the possibility for the OS X Yosemite 10.10 which was announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June to be made available on the same day, bearing in mind the latest public betas and developer previews appear to be close to completion.  

A anticipated feature for the new iPads is the Touch ID fingerprint sensor that is already available on the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6. It is also likely that both tablets will be slimmer in width than the current line-up.

As we anticipate the new Mac software, we are also secretly hoping for some improvements to the hardware. The Retina MacBook Air seems doubtful given that Intel’s new Broadwell chips are still a work in progress, but with talk of a higher-res Thunderbolt Display and the new Mac mini as a future prospect. But let’s see what develops.
