Following the iPhone 5S launch we all knew that Apple had a lot more to show us and earlier today they sent that message within their press invites. The next Apple keynote will take place on October 22, and most of Product Reviews readers expected at least a new iPad 5 and mini 2, but there will be a lot more on show.
We already pointed to the 2013 MacBook Pro that will likely share a similar release date to the new iPads, but a number of sources point to the 2013 Mac Pro joining the other products for a launch around mid-November.
There has been a number of rumors pointing to various launch dates, although this latest prediction arrived on Mac Generation and this website has been known to get it right on a number of occasions. This source goes the extra mile by providing exact release dates for each product.
If Mac Generation is correct, then you can expect to see the Haswell 2013 MacBook Pro release on October 24/25 and the new iPad mini 2 and iPad 5 on October 30/31. This website is based in France, so it is not clear if these release dates are for the USA or Europe.
They also pinpoint the 2013 Mac Pro release date for November 15, and this fits with Apple’s official message of later this year. While these release dates should still be counted as rumor, they make sense considering the event being one week away and we’ve already seen benchmarks and a number of leaks for all the new products.
