According to Re/code’s John Paczkowski, Apple plans to hold a special event next Thursday, October 16, to showcase their iPad line.

The event will be held at the company’s Town Hall Auditorium and it is expected to be more low-key than the iPhone 6 launch last month, Paczkowski writes.

The iPad Air and iPad Retina mini will reportedly pack Touch ID fingerprint sensors and updated processors.

Recent rumors speculated about the introduction of a gold iPad Air variant with a new anti-reflective laminated display.

The new Retina iMacs and the OS X Yosemite will also be a highlight of the event.

Last year, Apple held an October event where the iPad Air and iPad Mini with Retina display were presented.
