As expected, Apple has today confirmed October 22 as the date for the expected iPad and Mac special event. As is traditional, the event will kick off at 10am PST. This time around proceedings will be taking place at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco, under the tagline "we still have a lot to cover."

So, what are we expecting? Apple still has new iPads for 2013 to launch, including the refreshed full sized iPad that should take on the look of the iPad mini. A new iPad mini is also likely, though at this point it's still anyones guess as to whether it will or will not include a Retina Display.

Away from iPads, we're also expecting October 22 to bring news on the Mac front. OS X Mavericks is due for imminent release, the already announced Mac Pro should be getting some attention, and we could be looking at a Haswell update for the MacBook Pro line.

Whatever Apple throws our way in 7 days time, keep it locked to iMore for all the best coverage leading up to, during and post-event. Who's excited? And what are you most excited for?
