In a trend that has been going on for a few years now, Apple has announced that it will be live streaming the iPad event from October 16th. It will take place at 10 am PDT and it will most likely offer us a glimpse at the new Macs and iPads.
The event is streamed live on apple.com/live, provided that the stream holds up. Discussions about Mac OS X Yosemite will also be included, most likely. Apple also had an event last month, meant to debut the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, that have already surpassed the 20 million units sold mark. We sure hope the stream from next Thursday will be steady, as the one from last month was glitchy, slow and bugged.
Among the things expected on the 16th are a thinner iPad Air 2, with a more powerful CPU inside, Touch ID fingerprint scanning, improved cameras and maybe even a better Retina HD screen. The iPad Mini 3 isn’t sure to come on that date, since rumors have been placing it in 2015. If it does, it will also bring a Touch ID scanner and the bulk of the improvements of the bigger model.
A 12 inch Retina MacBook is also expected.
