Apple, yesterday, released invites to selected members of the press. For your viewing pleasure, I’ve inserted the invite graphics above.
The event will likely showcase a new iPad and possibly a new iPad Mini. A new Macbook Pro Retina will also likely be announced. According to sources, OS X Mavericks will probably also get some stage time.
What is unlikely, you ask? iTV is probably out of the question for this event, and probably for this year as a whole. On a matter of fact, I don’t know when we will ever see iTV. Another thing unlikely for this event is iWatch. the possibility of the seeing Apple’s revolutionary smart-watch on stage any time soon is also very unlikely.
Retina iPad mini? Possible, though not set in stone. We’ve all – in the tech world – been hearing conflicting reports on the subject, but I think that it is safe to assume that it will probably make it’s debut.
Mavericks Release Date? I’m glad you asked… I personally believe that it will be available on the Mac App Store after the event is over. Yes, that means that I think it will be released on October 22 at roughly 12:00. Why? It hit GM status over a week ago, it is virtually bug-free (Extensively tested first-hand), and would be a great selling point for the event. There is some questioning on the price. My gut says it will still be priced at $19.99, wile the hopeful part of me says it will be free.
Anyway, the only way to know if all this plays out the way I say it will is to wait until Tuesday. Who’s excited?
