Apple is staying tight-lipped over rumours that a new iPad release is imminent.

Speculation has heightened after respected technology site All Things D suggested an October 22 unveiling.

It said insiders are hinting at a thinner, lighter design, along with a better camera, and a new A7 processor – as seen in the iPhone 5S.

The iPad Mini is also said to be getting a higher quality ‘retina’ display.

However, true to form for the technology giant, an Apple spokesman based in London refused to comment on the speculation.

“We don’t discuss future products, we have not disclosed anything,” he said.

Apple will be hoping any new products can help it stem growing sales of cheaper Android-powered tablets, such as Google’s Nexus 7.

The technology giant also updated its iPhone range last month, showing off a new flagship iPhone 5 model and launching a slightly cheaper, multi-coloured 5C version.
