Apple iPad Event October 16th 2014 [Live Coverage]

Another Apple event, another live coverage. As always we’ll delivery you the news seconds after Apple announces it’s new products and services. The event goes live 10AM Pacific Time. It’s barely even been a month since Apple last got up on stage to unveil new products but hey they have even more new products to show. So what are we expecting this month? It’s looking like most of Apple’s biggest announcements for the year have already passed, meaning we’re expecting far more modest updates this month. Still, Apple has plenty ready to show off: new iPads, a new iMac, and the next version of OS X.
