Apple iPad event tipped for October 22

It’s not official just yet, but Apple is reportedly holding its fall iPad launch event on October 22 according to AllThingsD. The outlet’s sources suggest that while new iPads(s aapl) will be the main course, there could be appetizers featuring OS X Mavericks and the new Mac Pro that Apple teased this summer.

What’s to be expected? If the rumors are true look for a new 9.7-inch iPad that looks more like the current iPad mini: A slimmer, lighter device, likely with some of the goodies found in the new iPhone 5s. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a new iPad model with Apple’s 64-bit A7 chip and Touch ID sensor, for example.
