The official announcement and possible launch of Apple’s next iPad is being widely speculated on following the distribution of invitations to a media event. The date which may be the iPad 3’s big unveiling is set for 7 March, but there is speculation that Apple will have a few other tricks up its sleeve at the same time.
The media event will be taking place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and, while many believe that the iPad 3 will be the star of the show, Mac website 9to5Mac has cited sources “familiar with Apple’s upcoming product release” as saying that the company will also be announcing a new Apple TV at same time.
The rumoured Apple TV, codenamed J33, is said to include a variation of the dual-core A5 processor, Siri support and may launch with a new 1080p movies service on iTunes. If the rumours are true, that is.
