New iPads and OS X Yosemite Release News Allegedly Set for Oct. 21

Apple just announced the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus but we’re still waiting to hear news on the company’s next product advancements, especially its new iPads. A report from Daily Dot on Wednesday sheds some light on when wee might expect to hear more from Apple.

The news outlet said it has learned Apple will invite the press to yet another event on Oct. 21 where it will unveil its “two new iPads,” presumably a new iPad Air and a new iPad Mini 3 with Touch ID. Additionally, that’s when Apple is expected to announce the full release of OS X Yosemite, which works more seamlessly with iOS than ever before, thanks to features like Continuity. OS X Yosemite is currently in beta and interested consumers can opt to install a public beta to give it a whirl in advance.

Daily Dot notes that Apple announced its new iPads last year on Oct. 22, so the timing seems right. Additionally, Apple has promised an update to iOS 8 that will enable mobile payments and Continuity features sometime in October, which also lines up with the release of OS X Yosemite. Apple has not yet confirmed the date, so keep in mind this is still very much a rumor.
