iPad launch 2014 confirmed for October 16

Apple has confirmed it will hold a special event on October 16 in Berlin, most likely to be for the iPad mini 3 and iPad Air 2.

The Cupertino company has issued press invites for a Berlin-based event on October 16, reinforcing previous rumours Apple will launch its new iPad models on that date.

Although the rather pain invite doesn’t actually mention iPads at all – baring on the tagline “It’s been way too long” – the event follows the launch pattern for an iPad refresh.

It may well be that there is something to read into that tagline though. Apple hasn’t launched an Apple TV set top box for a number of years, so is now the time Apple lifts the lid on its Amazon Fire TV rival?

Apple may also be preparing to launch a 6th generation iPod Touch, as we haven’t had a new one of those for a while either. Plus, we’re still mourning the loss of the iPod Classic.

TrustedReviews will be on hand to bring you all the latest from the Apple event next week, so stay tuned.
