With an invite titled "We still have a lot to cover.", Apple are likely to reveal the Apple iPad 5, iPad mini 2 and Apple TV along with new MacBook Pro models. So far, quite a lot of leaked images and rumours point towards a slimmer and thinner Apple iPad 5 that uses the same narrow bezel design as the Apple iPad mini, while the iPad mini 2 will likely offer a Retina screen. The tech specs and features for these tablets are also expected to change with Apple's 64-bit A7 chip and Touch ID fingerprint scanner expected to be put into the iPad 5 along with a 2K Retina display. Apart from the expected Retina display, the iPad mini 2 will also likely get a new processor in the form of the Apple A6 processor. While these seem like the most likely Apple products to be revealed, we could also see the Apple iWatch revealed so stay tuned and we'll keep you posted. No details on Malaysia release dates or pricing just yet though.

When the Apple iPhone 5S appeared with Space Grey and Gold it was assumed that other Apple products would also have these new colour options as well. Seemingly confirming these assumptions is a recently leaked image of the Apple iPad Mini 2 in champagne gold. Rather than just a backplate, this appears to be the full tablet as it also features a fingerprint scanner Home button on the front, much like the one found on the Apple iPhone 5S. The pics certainly seem accurate enough to not be fakes but with all rumours do take this with a pinch of salt. While there was no exact Malaysia release dates or pricing the Apple iPad Mini 2 is expected to be announced in the next few weeks or so.
