Apple is set to unveil a new line of iPads at an invite-only event later this month if rumours are to be believed.

Generally reliable tech news website AllThingsD reported today that Apple will hold an event on 22 October in which it will show off a thinner iPad with an A7 processor and improved camera capabilities. The websited cited "people familiar with Apple's plans."

Apple is also expected to release an upgraded version of the iPad mini, possibly with a Retina display and an A7 processor to boot.

AllThingsD also noted Apple’s Town Hall Auditorium in Cupertino and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco as the two most likely locations for the launch event.

The iPad was last refreshed in November 2012.

Apple is looking for momentum after a quieter than usual iPhone 5s and 5c launch last month that saw subdued queues for the devices, and US carriers already cutting the price of the colourful iPhone 5c.

The new iPads are sure to be a big deal, however, with new sales data showing tablets are now an 'unstoppable force' down under.
