Apple iPad event, ios, macworld australiaWe knew it was coming, and it’s finally here: Apple overnight announced a media event to be held at its Cupertino headquarters 16 October (17 October here in Australia). Of course, the company didn’t give much – or any – detail as to what journalists and guests can expect, just that “it’s been too long.” Too long for what?

What we expect: An iPad Air 2 (perhaps in gold), a Retina iMac, the official launch of OS X Yosemite, iOS 8.1, and more information about Apple Pay, which is rumoured to launch in the US on 20 October.

If Apple were to sneak in one more thing at this event, what would you want to see? New iPods? Another peek at Apple Watch? Tell us in the comments, and follow us on October 17 at 4am AEST for all the news. We can’t wait.

    I would prefer Apple to err on the side of conservatism regarding product updates. While I like new gadgets (“bright shiny objects”) just as much as the next person, I would rather have them take the time to get it right. I worked for a firm that launched a product prematurely, which almost caused its total collapse from endlessly chasing quality issues. I would want a better fate for Apple.
