Market is expecting Apple to announce the release of its two new tablets, i.e., iPad Mini 2, and iPad 5, in its upcoming event on Tuesday, October 22, 2013. Though Apple has not mentioned much in the invitations sent across to journalists, other than “we have a lot to cover”, release of these two models in this meeting at San Francisco is almost a foregone conclusion.

There is a lot of speculation about features of these two gadgets. People are expecting that these two iPads would have A7 chip either incorporated in iPhone 5s or the A7X chip. A7X chip would help in improving its display screen to 2,048 by 1,536 pixels. Market is also prepared to see the motion compression chip (M7) that was incorporated in iPhone 5s though they are prepared for its absence.
Market is expecting many new features in the iPad 5, based on latest technologies that are available in various smartphones and tablets. In particular, it expects this tablet to include the latest chip of 64-bit that Apple has developed, apart from fingerprint recognition feature. Speculators believe that gold models of these two tablets would be made available by Apple. Apple is also expected to price these products as per its usual pricing policy.
Rumors also suggest that Apple would give details about its new operating system, i.e., Mac OS x Mavericks, and Mac Pro gadget at this meeting.
