Apple event announced for next Tuesday - New iPads and Macs expected

A widely speculated Apple launch event will take place next Tuesday, 22 October. Among the devices we're expecting are the new MacBook Pro and Mac Pro, as well as the iPad 5 and iPad 2 mini.

None of that's certain, but recent events have made the promise of Apple chief Tim Cook look rather silly. Last year he promised that the tech giant would be doubling down on secrecy - but there haven't been many surprises from recent pressers.
