Apple has announced a new live-streamed media event for October 16

Following on from Apple’s flagship live event back in September which saw the announcement of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Apple Watch, and Apple Pay, we could be about to see some updates to other areas of its product line: the next event has been confirmed to take place on October 16.

The event will be in the form of a special media event, and press invitations have already started being sent out. The message from Apple is far from revealing, simply stating: “It’s been too long”.

So, what are we likely to see? It’s believed that the so-called iPad Air 2, and the next-generation iPad mini will both be revealed, while OS X Yosemite, Apple’s latest Mac operating system that’s been in beta for some time will be officially released.

Updates to the Mac mini and the iMac are also expected.

A longer, but still perfectly valid prediction would be the announcement of a long-rumored 12.9-inch iPad, dubbed ‘iPad Pro’. We could also see a new iteration of the Apple TV and new iPod models – especially as the iPod Classic has now been discontinued.

The event will be held at 10am PDT on Apple’s Cupertino, California campus. It will be live-streamed simultaneously on Apple’s website.
