New iPads tipped for Apple launch next week

Apple is holding an event in San Francisco next week to announce new products - likely updated iPads.

The company announced its most recent iPads around this time last year. The announcement included a smaller version, called the Mini, for the first time.

New iPads would get Apple's latest operating system for mobile devices, iOS 7. The invitation sent includes a graphic that mimics the colour scheme in iOS 7.

Next Tuesday's event will take place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco, a venue Apple has often used in the past.

It follows last month's release of new iPhones with iOS 7 the 5S model with a fingerprint sensor and a cheaper, 5C model with a variety of colour options.
