The iPad mini 2nd generation will be similar to the original iPad mini with improved hardware such Apple’s new A7 chip with 1GB RAM, come in new colors, a fingerprint sensor and possibly come with Retina display.

Also on tap for the event is the release date for OS X Mavericks and hopefully some new information on the Mac Pro. Apple’s next generation powerhouse desktop was unveiled at WWDC 2013 with a radical new design. ALso expected, but not mentioned in this leak is the possible refresh of the MacBook Pro. Earlier this year, Apple updated the MacBook Air with the latest Intel Core iX chips. The iMac was recently updated, leaving the MacBook Pro as the only mainstream Mac with last year’s hardware.

Update:

Jim Dalrymple of The Loop who has an impeccable track record when it comes to Apple related rumors and famous for his one word responses, has also confirmed the iPad event will be held on October 22 with his typical “Yep.”

Apple will probably send an invite for the event sometime next week.
