New rumors have arrived claiming that Apple will unveil two new iPads on October 15th. The rumored tablets are considered to be the iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2. Last week’s keynote unveiled the iPhone 5s & iPhone 5c along side iOS 7 with no mention of tablets or computers.

French blog Macgeneration is the latest source behind this speculation but have a mediocre track record in terms of accurately gauging Apple’s strategy. The website previously claimed that a new set of Mac Pro laptops would be sold Spring 2013. After the iPhone 5 keynote last year, Tim Cook and his team held an event introducing new iPads one month later so this timeframe may still be accurate.

The expected specs surrounding the tentatively titled iPad 5 & iPad Mini 2 are that they will come to stores during the holidays equipped with a slimmer bezel and high res retina display while both products will essentially be designed in a similar manner. With the focus finally shifting away from the iPhone 5s & iPhone 5c, Apple could be focusing more attention on this next of devices as well as the final version of OS X Mavericks. While still too early to assume that this completely true, Tim Cook’s company has a few more tricks up their sleeve. We’ll update you more as this story develops.
