New iPad unveiling expected next week

CUPERTINO, Calif. — Apple is holding an event in San Francisco next week to announce new products — likely to be updated iPads.

The company unveiled its most recent iPads around this time last year. A smaller version, called the Mini, was offered for the first time.

New iPads would use Apple’s latest operating system for mobile devices, iOS 7. The invitation sent Tuesday includes a graphic that mimics the color scheme in iOS 7.


Next Tuesday’s event will take place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco, a venue Apple has often used. It follows last month’s release of new iPhones with the iOS 7 system.
