Apple will hold an event to unveil new iPad models on October 22, according to AllThingsD.

AllThingsD always accurately reports Apple event dates a few weeks before they happen, so you can consider this date very solid.

So what will Apple announce?

According to numerous leaks, Apple will introduce a new full-sized iPad with a thinner and lighter design that matches the iPad Mini.

Apple’s next iPad Mini will have a high-resolution screen, which Apple calls the Retina Display, but will have the same design as before.

Both iPads will have internal upgrades like faster processors. AllThingsD says the full-sized iPad will have the same new chip that’s in the iPhone 5S.
