Apple expected to unveil new iPad on Oct 16

Apple is expected to hold a “special event” on Oct. 16 to launch its new iPads, according to technology website Re/Code.

At the event, the iPhone maker could unveil the new iPads, along with updates to its iMac, Fortune reported.

The new iMacs will likely be equipped with a retina display which would be the company’s first desktop computer with the enhanced imaging technology, according to 9to5Mac.

Apple reportedly will also reveal a gold iPad. Reports say the updated tablet may come equipped with the Touch ID fingerprint sensor currently on newer versions of the iPhone.

The event may be held at Apple’s Town Hall Auditorium in Cupertino, Re/Code said. Originally, rumors circulated that the event was scheduled for Oct. 21.

In September, Apple announced its new line of iPhones, a smart watch and Apple Pay, a mobile payment system.

Last year, Apple announced the iPad Air, the second generation iPad mini, and released its OS X Mavericks operating system on Oct. 22.
