Breaking: Apple major press event on October 22

Just in time to start making a Christmas shopping list.... 

A new report indicates that Apple will be holding a press event on Oct. 22.

According to sources speaking with AllThingsD, Apple is all set to hold a press event on Oct. 22, but the exact nature of the event, or the location is not known at this time. The sources said to expect it to be “iPad centric,” which fits in with the numerous rumors the public has been hearing for some time now. The sources also indicated that OS X Mavericks (the next operating system for Apple's computers) and the MacBook Pro line will also receive some attention during the event. Additionally, the company is set to give the iPad its first complete redesign in two years by narrowing the bezels of the tablet and overall making it more similar to the iPad mini. All Things D reports that both tablets will use the company's new 64-bit A7 chip. Widespread leaks suggest that Apple will update its iPad mini with a new, higher-resolution Retina display than the outgoing model. 

With the number of leaks that have appeared as of late for a fifth generation iPad and an iPad mini 2, those devices seem like a lock at this point, but with Apple you never know what to expect exactly. There has still been no sign of an update to the iPod line this year, and rumors have been circulating that the Apple TV may also be in line for an update.

Notably, October 22nd is the same day that Microsoft is launching its Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 tablets. If that weren't enough, Nokia will be holding an event to reveal new hardware on that date as well.

Considering Apple limited itself to only the mild refreshes introduced by the iPhone 5S and 5C at its press event last month, there's likely even more on tap. With Apple's latest version of its desktop operating system — OS X Mavericks — on the horizon, as well as updated MacBooks with Intel's latest Haswell processors and possibly other hardware on the horizon, this event looks like it will be very busy.

I'll have more information as it comes
