New Apple iPad launches in a couple of weeks! Well that’s what big US blog AllthingsD is claiming. It says that its sources say Apple will deliver the fifth generation iPad and the second gen iPad mini – with a possible side of other new products ((Mac pro?) on October 22nd.
AllThingsD has had a good track record at predicting Apple launch event days and were bang on with the September 10th date for the iPhone 5s and 5c.
If you are expecting some huge new technological advance from the new iPad think again. The 5th gen iPad is likely to be thinner and lighter and look a little more like the iPad mini. Meanwhile the mini will most likely sport a retina display. Anything else would be a major surprise. It is interesting too that very little has recently been heard of the iWatch.
There have been rumours recently that the display has caused Apple issues and that it won’t have enough of the iPad mini 2 this side of Christmas. If this isn’t rubbish then maybe we will see the new iPad mini 2 in limited quantities for a few months. Apple is highly unlikely to unveil a iPad mini 2 without a Retina display.
