Apple's iPad Media Event Scheduled For October 22

Apple will hold its iPad media event on Tuesday, October 22 according to a few reliable sources, AllThingsD and The Loop. Before Apple sends out official press invitations to its media event however, we do know that it is highly anticipated that Apple will release a redesigned iPad 5 with a slimmer, narrow-bezel and aluminum iPad mini-like design (seen in the leaked parts above) - along with Touch ID implementation, improved cameras and specs, a Retina iPad mini and new Space Gray color options which will replace the black slate-colored iPads.

Apple Confirms iPad Event For March 7

Apple has officially confirmed that it will hold an iPad press event slated to start at 10AM PST sharp on Wednesday, March 7 at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco. Apple is expected to release the third installment to the ever so popular iPad tablet, the iPad 3. Until then, Apple's message on its 2012 iPad event press invite reads "We have something you really have to see. And touch." on top of what might be a home button-less, slimmer iPad 3 sporting a retina display and faster internal hardware.
