Apple's announcement of a "special event" next week has sparked rumours the technology giant could be about to unveil a new range of iPads.
Experts anticipate the company will bring some of the features of the latest iPhones to its tablets, including coloured casings and fingerprint security, while giving them more power.
The famously secretive California firm is remaining tight-lipped over the announcement, saying simply "We still have a lot to cover" on invitations to the event.
As well as new iPads, it is also rumoured the gadget giant could be launching a new Macbook laptop and revamping operating software for its computers.
Oliver Folkard, a telecoms expert at comparison website uSwitch.com, said: "Apple's increasingly leaky supply chain means it's rare that there's very much to surprise industry watchers at launch events these days, s o we've got a pretty good idea of what October 22nd's tablet double-whammy will bring us.
"Alongside a power boost and better screen that come as standard with new editions of established Apple product lines, this year we expect the iPad mini range and its standard-sized sibling converging both in terms of specs and design.
"Market intelligence suggests that the iPhone 5S Touch ID fingerprint security could also make its way to the iPad, but could be reserved for the higher-priced, larger tablet.
"The iPhone 5S is also likely to provide the colour palette for both new slates, which will come in gold, silver-white and graphite grey. As with the iPhone 5S, we expect the gold edition to be the most popular."
