The iPhone maker is likely to unveil the new iPads and the latest updates to its iMac line, Re/code reports, says an article published by technology website.
However, there were reports of Apple planning to launch a ‘gold’ iPad Air 2. According to another report, the new versions of the 9.7-inch iPads which are expected to be unveiled at the October 16th event will include a golden coloured rear metal cover in addition to the silver and gray that are already available.
The report further says that Apple’s iPad sales have been declining and that this would not be the first time that Apple would try a coloured-devices strategy to boost sales.
Apple sold close to 13.2 million iPads in Q2 of 2014, which is again less than the 16.3 million sold in Q2 of 2014, and less than the 14.6 million iPads sold in Q3 of 2013.
According to Apple’s official data, the iPad saw a negative growth of 9 percent on units and negative growth of 8 percent on revenue, year-on-year.
