Trending: Why Amazon is suddenly going on the offensive amid a growing techlash

YosemiteBetaApple will hold an event to unveil a whole smorgasbord of updated devices on Oct. 16, John Paczkowski of Re/code reported today. The event will be primarily focused on the launch of updated iPads, as well as the unveiling of new iMacs with Retina Displays.

In addition to the hardware news, Apple is also slated to release OS X Yosemite, the next update to its desktop operating system, which it announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference back in June.

Yosemite comes with a whole bunch of updates for Mac users, including a significant user interface redesign, and Continuity features that better connect Macs with iOS devices so that users can move seamlessly between their gadgets.

It’s unclear yet if a MacBook Air with Retina Display will make an appearance at the event, though its existence has been a common fixture of Apple’s rumor mill for the past year, and this event would make sense for its unveiling.

While invitations to the event haven’t been sent out yet, Paczkowski has a solid track record when it comes to Apple rumors, especially the timing of events. So Apple fans who want to make sure they can track the keynote live will want to block out their calendars for that morning.
