The launch is said to take place at the company’s Town Hall Auditorium in Cupertino, and most likely won’t be as flamboyant as the iPhone 6 launch event.

The date of 16 October is just a few days earlier than last year when Apple debuted the iPad Air, the iPad Mini with Retina display, and launched its revamped Mac Pro.

Besides the updated version of the iPad Air and iPad Mini, a final version of OS X Yosemite and iMacs with Retina displays are some other products that could get unveiled.

Prior to 2012, Apple unveiled new iPads in the spring, but the company changed this to make the best of the upcoming holiday season when many people are eying the iPad as a potential Christmas gift.

As for the specs and features of the upcoming new iPads, we should expect the usual incremental updates from Apple, and that is – improved cameras and processors, and perhaps a better build.

Some recent rumors were suggesting that Apple could add a gold color option in order to boost sales of the declining iPad; and fingerprint scanner is also another novel that could make its way into the the iconic products.
