Apple will be kicking off its event at 6pm that will see the firm unveil a raft of new products, with a new full-size iPad, the iPad 5 and the latest version of the iPad Mini expected to be on display.
The firm confirmed rumours of a launch last week when it sent out invitations for an event on 22 October with the tag line, “We still have a lot to cover”, and anticipation is now building around the products that will be on show.
The products likely to be on unveiled at the event are:
- Retina display iPad Mini
- A new full-size iPad
- New MacPro computer tower
- A series of new MacBook laptops
- Further updates to its new Mac OS X, called Mavericks, as well as its release date
The event starts at 6pm UK time and V3 will be covering the announcements live as they happen so check back for all the news as it happens.
The firm will be hoping that demand for its new products matches that for the iPhone 5S and 5C, which were released in September. Opening weekend sales hit nine million, although it appears the 5S was by far the more popular of the two devices.
The firm may steer clear of talking too much about iOS 7, though, as to date users appear unimpressed with the new platform, with scores of V3 readers complaining about a raft of issues ranging from design to functionality.
A report on users' unhappiness with the platform led to even more complaints being raised, as Apple faces its first serious wave of user criticism in some time. Rivals will be hoping to entice users to their platforms as a result, with Nokia set to unveil a series of new devices on Tuesday as well.
