Apple's 2014 iPad Product Lineup

Share this:

Apple held three special events over this past year: the Worldwide Developer’s Conference in June and two special events in the Fall.  They announced a plethora of new products in terms of hardware and software. We don’t expect Apple to hold another event this year, but the next one should be in early 2015. Apple is currently selling two different generations of the full-sized iPad and three of the miniature iPad.  Here’s the iPad lineup for 2014:

October 22 Event:

Apple’s invitation was released last week showing an apple with transparent leaves and the words: “We still have a lot to cover.”  The event will take place in San Francisco, California at 10am PT. or 1pm EST.  Apple has not yet announced they will be live streaming the event, although they may wait until the last minute to reveal this.  I will not be attending this event and any news I find will be posted on my Twitter.  There are links below to live blogs where they will actually be in attendance for the event.  However, if you live in London, there will be a live stream that will take place at the Kings Place Hall at 6pm GMT.  Finally, if Apple chooses to live stream their event at last minute, check it out here.
