Apple has just started sending out invites to hand-picked media representatives for their forthcoming special event on October 23rd, widely believed to be concentrated on the rumored iPad Mini and Macs. The event is scheduled to take place at 10:00 am PT, as usual, but the location has changed- instead of Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, the media event will be held at the California Theatre in San Jose.
"We've got a little more to show you"- read the invitations, hinting that it’s quite possible the company will introduce a “little” version of the iPad, and perhaps an updated iPad 3 with Lightning cable and international LTE. Moreover, we may also see the final version of iTunes 11, and perhaps a bump to iOS 6 to support the new devices.
With the event being less than a week away, a product list has leaked, suggesting that Apple may launch as many as 24 iPad models! The differences between the numbers of iPads will be in storage, color, and radio variants, which is fairly typical for any new Apple product. The report reads:
“With the three storage capacities, four models, and lastly two colors denoted by “A” and “B” (likely black and white), Apple will launch 24 new iPad models. Apple will also be selling 10 packs of iPad Minis to education for a discount, according to the SKUs.”
So, with no official confirmation of what the new iPads and Macs will look like, all we’ve left to do is to keep calm and wait for October 23rd!
