Apple is expected to launch some exciting new products on October 22 according to a report by AllThingsD, coincidentally it will be the same day Microsoft’s new Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 goes on sale as well as the day Nokia is expected to launch their new tablet line up.
According to AllThingsD, Apple will be holding an invitation-only event on October 22 to showcase some new products. These new products may include, but not be limited to the Apple iPad 5 which is set to feature a drastic redesign as well as the addition of a TouchID sensor, an iPad Mini 2 which may feature a Retina display as well as a TouchID sensor and a champagne coloured offering, new MacBook Air notebooks with Retina displays and the new OS X Mavericks update, a possible new Mac Pro, a possible Apple iOS-powered console and an Apple iTV. Apple’s iWatch is only expected to hit in early 2014.
If rumours are correct, Apple is set to dazzle, and be quite the thorn in Microsoft’s back, for whom the day would be much more important as Windows powered tablets come of age, and likely fail.
