Apple has just finished launching its new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones, as well as announcing its first wearable: Watch. But now that is all out of the way and iPhones begin shipping to consumers around the world, the rumors of the new iPad begin.
The latest rumor is that the Cupertino-based iGiant will announce its new iPad on October 21, as well as the official release date of OS X Yosemite. The successor to the iPad would be the sixth-generation full-sized iPad, while a new iPad mini would be a third-generation slate. It would make sense to announce them next month, for two reasons.
First, Apple probably didn't want to take the hoopla away from the iPhone launch, as the iPhone is obviously very important to them. And second, the fifth-generation iPad and second-generation iPad mini were announced in October 2013, launching them on November 1.
