Apple to hold media event event on 16 October, new iPads and Macs expected

Apple has invited journalists to a media event taking place on 16 October, where it is widely expected to announce the new iPad Air 2 and a third-generation iPad mini.

The invitation, emailed today, features a colourful outline of the top half of the Apple logo, along with the message “It’s been way too long.”

Although new iPads are expected - and have started to leak online in recent days - the event is also where Apple is tipped to announce a new iMac, possible with a high-resolution Retina display.

The new version of its Mac OS X operating system, called Yosemite, is also expected to be released to the public.Yosemite includes a number of features which unite the Mac and iOS devices, such as the ability to answer calls and reply to text messages on your Mac, providing your iPhone is connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

The event will take place at Apple’s Town Hall Auditorium at the company’s California headquarters, a much smaller and more intimate venue compared to the massive Flint Centre, where the iPhone 6, 6 Plus and Apple Watch were unveiled last month.

As is standard for Apple announcements, the event will kick off at 10am local time, which is 6pm in the UK.
