Apple Announces Media Event for October 16

As first reported by The Loop’s Jim Dalrymple, Apple has invited selected members of the press to a media event that will take place in Cupertino, California, on October 16th at 10 AM.

Following last month’s introduction of the iPhone 6, Apple Pay, and Apple Watch, the company is expected to announce new iterations of its iPad Air and iPad mini lines. According to recent rumors and speculation, the new iPads will carry Touch ID (first introduced last year with the iPhone 5s), a thinner chassis, and design cues from the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Apple is also expected to provide a release date for Yosemite, the next major version of OS X currently in testing with registered Mac developers and in “Golden Master candidate” status. OS X Yosemite, announced at WWDC ‘14, brings a complete redesign of the company’s Aqua interface and deeper integration with iOS 8 through Handoff and Continuity. Yosemite will also feature the desktop counterparts of several new functionalities first rolled out on iOS 8, such as Notification Center widgets and app extensions.
