Confirming an earlier report, Apple today sent out invitations to media for an event to be held on Thursday, October 16. The company is widely expected to announce new iPads and Mac computers during the presentation, which will be held at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, California.

“It’s been way too long,” Apple teased in its invitation sent to media (via GameSpot sister site CNET).

According to a report from Recode last week, Apple might also talk about OS X Yosemite, the latest iteration of its operating system, during the event.

Apple has a history of holding iPad events in October, as the company announced the iPad Air and iPad Mini devices last year at an event on October 22, 2013.

Next week’s event comes just a month after Apple unveiled the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and Apple Watch as part of a high-profile presentation that even featured a performance by U2. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus went on sale on September 19 and sold a record 10 million units in three days.

As for Apple’s iPad line, the first iPad was released in 2010 and prompted the release of a flood of similar tablets from competing companies. Xbox maker Microsoft launched its own tablet line, called Surface, in 2012.
