AllThingsD cites sources claiming that “the focal point of the gathering will the latest updates to the company’s iPad line, but new Mac Pro and OS X Mavericks will likely get some stage time as well.”

Recent leaks point to similarities between the next iPad and the iPad mini in terms of design.

The new tablet is expected to come with thinner side bezels and sharper edges.

The iPad 5 could also feature a fingerprint reader and Touch ID technology, similar to the iPhone 5S.
