According to France-based MacGeneration, which has offered both accurate and inaccurate information in the past, Apple’s next media event will be held on Tuesday, October 15th. Apple is expected to debut a series of new products by the end of this year, including multiple new iPad models, several new Macs, OS X Mavericks, and perhaps an update to Apple TV hardware.
Today’s report also claims that iMac stock is constrained, something we reported earlier this month. An October event following a September event would not be unprecedented. Last year, Apple debuted the iPhone 5 and new iPods in September, and then it launched new Macs, a new full-sized iPad, and the first-generation iPad mini in late October.
We’re expecting OS X Mavericks to hit the App Store toward the end of October. Besides the iMac, the MacBook Pro and Mac mini are both due for Intel Haswell-infused refreshes. We’re also expecting Apple to introduce at least two new iPads, including a redesigned full-sized model and an iPad mini with a Retina display.
