    What will the new iPad have to enthrall users?

    Apple will unveil new iPads at an Oct. 22 event, but the details -- such as location -- are still being finalized, according to reports.

    The Cupertino-based tech giant's fifth-generation iPad will be thinner and lighter -- and will accompany a new iPad Mini, according to reports in AllThingsD and the San Jose Mercury News.

    Apple may unveil the new tablets in Cupertino -- or at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, where the late Steve Jobs himself unveiled new gadgets.

    Apple reportedly has multiple new products in the works, including a Mac Pro and a OS X Mavericks operating system -- and new technology like the Touch ID sensors, which scan users' fingerprints.
