The new iPad, potentially the iPad 5, should go on sale at the beginning of November based on Apple’s previous release schedules.

With Apple expected to unveil new versions of the iPad and iPad mini at a media event this week, here is a list of what to expect from the presentation.

There have been many rumours and reported leaks regarding the tech giant’s latest tablets that will either be confirmed or shot down at the event today.

Until then, here are a few of the things we know already, or are thought to be true, about the new gadgets.

Apple has sent out invites to an event next week where it is expected to launch a new iPad and mini iPad. In its typical cryptic way, the invite makes no mention of what the technology company plans to release. Instead, the invite to an event in San Francisco says "we still have a lot to cover" with a stylized version of the Apple logo with multiple versions of the apple stalk in different colors. The guessing game is now on to try and work out what the words mean. Some tech writers have decided it means the new iPads will come with new colorful covers. Others have gone for a literal meaning, hoping that it means that a lot of new devices will be released in an event where Apple CEO Tim Cook will have a lot to cover. Last month Apple held the launch for its new iPhone 5S and 5C models in its Cupertino headquarters. This event will be held at the Yerba Buena Centre for the Arts in San Francisco. The rumors are that the 5th generation iPad will get a new look, including a smaller bezel, while the iPad Mini is expected to be upgraded with a high-resolution Retina screen. Apple is also expected to release more details of its new operating system, OS X Mavericks, and upgrades to the MacBook Pro rang

New iPad (iPad 5?)

Apple’s premier tablet will still have a 9.7-inch Retina Display but will be slimmer than the last edition, according to ‘leaked’ photos of the device.

The new iPad is also rumoured to contain an upgraded A7 64-bit processor.

There may also be new versions of the tablet with increased memory, with current models only available with data up to the capacity of 128GB.

The design is thought to be similar to the iPhone 5S, with the gadget set to borrow the smartphone’s TouchID fingerprint scanner.

The mini version of the Apple tablet will have an improved Retina Display and a brand new sleek design that is also inspired by the iPhone 5S, according to reports.

It may also borrow other features from the popular smartphone, such as the fingerprint scanner.

Purported leaked photos of the tablet revealed it would also come in a gold colour similar to the 5S and it has been rumoured the device will be available in ‘Space Grey’.
