Earlier this month Apple send out the below invitation for an event on October 16.
It is rumored that Apple will release a thinner iPad Air. The new tablet is going to a higher resolution and also enable split-screen-multitasking in iOS8. In order to manage that the iPad Air 2 is said to get a more powerful SoC – the A8X. This is in line with what Apple has done in the past, both the third and fourth generation came with a modified SoC marked with “X”.
It is also expected that Apple will release Retina iMacs and some people are interpreting the slogan “It’s been way too long.”, saying the next generation iPod will be revealed.
We will have to wait until later this week to see. Apple will once again stream the event on their website: http://www.apple.com/live
