Actually, we believe that Apple may be unveiling of its latest tablet computer on October 16 at an event.
If these goes through, is expected to release an update to the operating system for its Mac computers and the possible release of a new digital payment service called Apple Pay. As the Apple iPhones released last month are designed with a wireless chip equipped to make the payments, but the service is not yet available.
In keeping with its usual practice, Apple Inc. isn’t saying what’s on the agenda. Instead, a cryptic invitation sent Wednesday to reporters and analysts simply said: “It’s been way too long.”
However, Apple typically releases its latest products during these period of the year as to cash in on the holiday shopping season. The company’s last tablet, the iPad Air, came out nearly a year ago.
Although the iPad Air, it’s Apple’s sleekest tablet yet, actually the iPad Air has not proven compelling enough to accelerate sales of it’s tablet products. After a solid performance in last year’s holiday shopping season, Apple’s iPads have faltered. Through the first half of this year, Apple had shipped 29.6 million iPads, a 13 per cent drop from the same time last year.
Speculation surrounding the new iPad, features inclusion of a sensor that enables a device to be unlocked with a user’s fingerprint instead of a password. The feature, called Touch ID, has been available on Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus models. Apple also might offer an iPad with a gold-coloured casing, another option already available on iPhones.
Apple’s most recent iPhone includes a hot-selling model with a 5.5-inch display screen. Some analysts believe the bigger iPhone might siphon sales from Apple’s iPad Mini, which has a 7.9-inch screen. The standard iPad boast a nearly 10-inch screen.
Apple may also release an update called “Yosemite” to it’s operating system for Apple’s line of Mac computers, making it likely that the software will also be a part of the October 16 event at company’s headquarters in Cupertino.
