Re/code reported on Friday that Apple is planning to hold an event on Thursday, October 16, where it will debut new iPads sporting Touch ID, 27-inch iMacs with Retina Displays, and OS X Yosemite. The site quoted the ever popular, “unnamed sources familiar with the company’s plans.”
John Paczkowski for Re/code:
Given the breadth and spectacle of Apple’s September event, this one will be a more laid-back affair held at the company’s Town Hall Auditorium in Cupertino, without any mysterious white structures and awkward one-song concerts.
Apple declined to confirm the event when contacted by Re/code.
If Apple follows its usual operating system release pattern, OS X Yosemite should be released to the public soon after the event. The new OS will be a free download.
Apple is also scheduled to announce its fiscal Q4 2014 financial results on Monday, October 20. MacTrast will provide coverage of both the October 16th and October 20th events. So stay tuned.
