Apple to Unveil New iPads on October 22nd?



According to AllThingsD, Apple will officially unveil its new iPad 5 and probably a redesigned iPad mini with Retina display on Tuesday, October 22nd. The site experts claim that the media event can take place either at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts or at Apple's Town Hall auditorium.

The fifth generation iPad is expected to feature a thinner, lighter design akin to the iPad mini’s and an improved camera. It will run Apple’s new 64-bit A7 chip. The second-generation iPad mini will be upgraded with a retina display and also see the A7 incorporated into its innards. It’s not clear whether Apple’s new iPads will feature the Touch ID fingerprint sensor that recently debuted on the iPhone 5s, though that has been rumored.

Apple hasn’t neither confirmed, nor denied the information about new products’ launch yet.

ITC ban on Older iPhones, iPads was vetoed



According to WSJ, the Obama Administration has vetoed an ITC ban on the sale of older iPhones and iPads. The law would have prohibited selling of such models as AT&T iPhone 4 and iPad 2.

U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman made the decision to veto the ban on the Apple devices, citing concerns about patent holders gaining "undue leverage." He said Samsung could continue to pursue its patent rights through the courts. The action marked the first time since 1987 that a presidential administration had vetoed a product ban ordered by the U.S. International Trade Commission.

Since now the problem has risen of allowing companies to use  standard essential patents to block rival products.
