Apple confirms 22 October event: Mac OS X Mavericks, updated iPads, MacPro expected

Apple 22 October invite for iPad Mini 2 and iPad 5 launch

Apple has sent out invitations for an event on 22 October – next Tuesday – where it is widely expected to unveil a host of new products. The event invite reads: “We still have a lot to cover."

This is likely to include a Retina display iPad Mini, a new full-size iPad, a brand new MacPro computer tower, a series of new MacBook laptops and further updates about its new Mac OS X, called Mavericks, as well as its release date.

The Apple event had been widely expected, and it comes around six weeks after the firm unveiled its new iPhone 5S and 5C smartphones.

The event is also a chance for the firm to address problems and criticisms of iOS 7, of which there have been many, such as iMessages not being sent and problems with battery life. Many users have been left hugely frustrated by these issues.

However, Apple chief executive Tim Cook and his cohorts may just focus on the unveiling, which is likely to lead to more clamour for products from the firm.

The event date is bad news for Nokia and Microsoft, both of which have major events planned for 22 October. Nokia is hosting its Nokia World event in Dubai, where it is expected to unveil a series of new devices.

Meanwhile, Microsoft's new Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets will be going on sale. However, with Apple showing off new iPad models – which will also mean older iPads fall in price again – it could find interest mooted as consumers continue to favour Apple.
