iPad 5 Event Now Rumored for October 22

We now have two rumored dates for Apple's next-generation iPad event. John Paczkowski of AllThingsD claims Apple will unveil its new iPad lineup on October 22, 2013, not on October 15 like a previous rumor had suggested. Apple will announce its fifth-generation iPad, iPad mini with Retina display, its new Mac Pro and OS X Mavericks at the event, according to people familiar with the company's plans.

The fifth-generation iPad is expected to receive a new iPad-mini like redesign, an improved camera and a Touch ID fingerprint sensor like seen on the iPhone 5s. The iPad mini 2 will be upgraded with an A7 chip and Retina display. However, Reuters previously reported that the iPad mini 2 will be available in limited quantities during the holiday season.

Paczkowski's sources declined to give the location of the event, but he believes it will either be held at Appleā€™s Town Hall Auditorium in Cupertino or the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.
