iPad Media Event Decorations Begin Going Up at Yerba Buena Center

Apple has begun installing decorations at the Yerba Buena Center ahead of Tuesday's media event, where Apple is widely expected to introduce new iPad and iPad mini models.

MacRumors reader David Jones sent in this image of colorful decorations going up on the side of the San Francisco building. The graphics match the invitations sent out to media members earlier this week.

The October 22 date was first reported by AllThingsD earlier this month, and was quickly confirmed by the The Loop's ever-reliable Jim Dalrymple.

The original AllThingsD report claimed that event will focus on the iPad updates, but that OS X Mavericks and the redesigned Mac Pro will also be featured at the event. Apple is due to release a number of other product updates, perhaps most notably new MacBook Pros, but it is apparently still unclear whether those updates will be a part of next week's event.

Update: Jones has now caught a photo of the plans showing the overall design for the graphics.

Wow, you must be fun at parties. :rolleyes:

This was the greatest personal computer company in the world before it turned into an iToy show.


Some would argue computing is more and more personal with iPhones and iPads than desktops ever were.

Because the world has moved on to mobile. How would being a niche computer company be good for Apple. Doesn't seem to be working out so great for Dell or HP.

First off, iPad Mini was announced basically a year ago almost to the day.

Secondly, what percentage of Apple's sales are Macs right now? 10 percent on a good day?

Yes, it makes perfect sense to have Mac related only items have their own specific event with the tagline "We still have a lot to cover" with another event in London as well for their weakest sellers.

The App Store almost beats Mac sales in terms of revenue...

I am not sure if many people on these boards can remember the pre-iPod Apple when Apple *was* a computer company, and it *was* Apple COMPUTER Inc., but it actually wasn't so bad...and there was a lot of Apple pride back then.


You're not the only one who was around back then. Times change. Get over it and stop living in the past. The average person doesn't need a traditional computer anymore. A tablet does everything they need (i.e. surf web, watch youtube, email, facebook, etc). No, "computers" won't ever go away entirely but we're already at the point where the average household probably doesn't need one anymore.
