Apple Special Event 22 October 2013 Preview

Apple is going to hold another event this year. With a kind of lukewarm acceptance of its September event, Apple surely needs to up their gameplan and show a brighter future of their products and ultimately their company.

Rumours have it that this time they have to show some things that they've introduced during their summer 2013 event. On top of it, they are expected to release new things that is approaching the end of their life cycle. 

The things that they've introduced during the summer developer's event was Mac Pro, and the new Apple OS X 10.9 Mavericks (link). Those two are most likely to show up this time. People are also expecting updates to other lineups too, such as the MacBook Pro, iPad, iPad mini, displays and even Mac Mini. Apple ditches numbering to their products, therefore it is most likely that the new iPads will be called iPad and iPad mini instead of iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 respectively.

That is quite a lot. No wonder the catchphrase they use in the invitation is "We still have a lot to cover". MacBook Pro and retina MacBook Pro are more likely to get an Intel Haswell update. There is also a possibility that Apple will ditch non-retina MacBook Pro lineup once and for all. It is plausible, but might welcome boos from the audience.

The new iPad and iPad mini might get the Touch ID sensor just like the newly launched iPhone 5s. The iPad mini might also get a retina display, even though that might slightly add to the difficulty for the developers having to program for several sizes of iDevice screens. However, if that's what people want, I think Apple would follow through. 

I'm not sure about the displays and the Mac mini update. However I'm very keen with the Mac Pro update. I've thought (day dreamt) about the similar thermal design before, but never put it onto paper. Then I totally forgot about it. I hope the Mac Pro would be successful, not like their discontinued iCube.

I think that's about it. Now I can't wait for the release of OS X 10.9 Mavericks and the Mac Pro! What about you?
