    Apple Event 22 October: Preview
    Apple is hosting an event in San Francisco tomorrow where they promise they still have a lot to cover, following on from the recent launches of the iPhone 5S and 5C.

    Whilst Cupertino has been customarily quiet on the exact details of what they will show, there's at least two new products that are certain to be unveiled - the iPad 5 and the second generation of the iPad Mini.

    After the iPhone's leap in to the 64-bit world, we fully expect the new iPad will make the same jump and to feature an enhanced A7 processor. We would also assume that the new iPhone's Touch ID fingerprint technology will come across to the slate and, of course, it will be running iOS 7.
    iPad 5 to be 64-bit?
    The next iPad Mini seems to certain to boast an extremely high resolution display. Google's latest Nexus 7 tablet currently blows the iPad Mini away, in this regard, with its 1920 x 1200 screen so we'd expect Apple to at least match that and probably better it with their Retina (2048 x 1536) display. Inside is likely to be a variant of their A6 processor, so it will stay in the 32-bit zone for the time being, at least.
    Apple New iPad
    It's become traditional for Apple to show off their latest iPods at the same time as announcing the new iPads, so we should expect to see new Touch and Nano models.
    New iPods expected too
    It's also possible that Apple will take the opportunity to furnish more details of their newest desktop OS, Mavericks, and they could even give a price and release date. Along with that, we might see the all-new Mac Pro as well as updates to the Macbook Pro and Mac Mini.

    Whatever the weather, we'll be on hand to give you the details once they're known.
