Apple will reportedly unveil two new iPads, a redesigned fifth-generation iPad and the second generation of its smaller iPad mini, at an event on October 22nd.
According to AllThingsD, Apple will cut the size and weight of its full-sized iPad, which has typically sported a 9.7-inch display, upgrading its processor to the new A7 chip. Along with a new camera, the iPad 5 may also sport a Touch ID sensor. This jibes with what we’ve seen in recent leaked images.
The iPad mini 2 will reportedly also have a Retina display, which at 7.9-inches comes to an iPhone-like 324 ppi density. To power all those pixels, the iPad mini will also be powered by a variant of the A7, though it’s not clear how Apple will keep the entry price at $329 if it has the same general hardware as the larger iPad.
The Mac Pro and OS X Mavericks will also share some stage time with the new iPads, but the October 22nd event, which is the same day Nokia plans to unveil its new products, will be mainly about tablets.
