The release of Apple’s iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C have just been made public a few weeks ago and it looks like Apple is at it again but this time the news is set to be released on October 22nd. The timing is right on schedule as the holiday season starts to roll around and Apple is looking to unveiling their new iPad, Mac Pro and OS X Mavericks. The release of these devices are very much welcomed with the recent stock shares not faring too well, even with a new iPhone being released recently.
October 22nd falls on a Tuesday, in just over a weeks time from today and was announced by AllThingsD which is a company well known for being accurate on when Apple holds an event. Apple are looking to be taking the sting out of the competitive market, Microsoft’s Surface 2 is due to release the same day and Nokia is set to announce a new line of Lumia phones as well. Though both Nokia and Microsoft are looking to squeeze out some sales themselves, Apple may to want to squash any possibilities of either company gaining ground during this holiday season
The new Apple iPads are rumored to be similar however to last years iPad mini, in a concept of how Apple repackaged the older iPhone 5 and sold it as the new IPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, so it seems this is the common theme for the year of 2013 and Apple. The iPads are also said to feature the color options the new iPhone 5C offer, but it’s yet to be seen if Apple’s Touch ID seniors are going to be implemented in the new devices.
The Mac Pro and the upgrade to OS X Mavericks have not released a date they will be available, but AllThingsD believes that these new products will be announced as well on October 22nd by Apple. Last week OS X Mavericks, which is the follow up to Apples OS X Mountain Lion was given to developers to get the ball rolling on applications and programs being developed before it was released to the general public.
Next week we should be able to find out more information on what Apple plans on talking about during the event, as it’s a normal for Apple to invite the media to the event a week in advance in order to get the hype on these new devices turning. The one gripe I have with Apple is the price point of their Mac series, if they could use a similar concept that Samsung used in creating the Series 3 Chromebook, then Apple may find a new way to keep their limited line choices relevant without the need to stray too far from the design tree that is known as Apple.
