Apple has set October 22 as the day to unveil the fifth generation iPad. The updated iPad is expected to be thinner, lighter and sport an improved camera. But it’s the innards that will likely set tongues wagging.
The new iPad will feature the new 64-bit A7 chip. The iPad has been making inroads into the corporate environment, but the new chip is expected to spur more enterprise App development. This means that the iPad will be setting its sights on replacing not just laptops, but desktops, in the corporate world.
One item that you could see included in the new iPad is the Touch ID fingerprint sensor that is part of the new iPhone 5S.
At the October 22 event, the new Mac Pro and the OS X Mavericks should get some stage time as well as the iPad.
While no release date is available, expect the new iPad to be available by mid-November so Apple can take advantage of the holiday buying season.
