Apple Inc is set to launch two new iPads and release the next version of its Mac operating system at its next event on October 21.

A report by Daily Dot, citing sources familiar with the matter, said Apple plans to unveil the sixth generation of its iPad and the third edition of the iPad mini, as well as its operating system OS X Yosemite, which has undergone a complete visual overhaul.

Trudy Muller, a spokeswoman for Apple, declined to comment.

Bloomberg had earlier reported that the new iPad is expected to have a 9.7-inch screen while the new version of the iPad mini will have a 7.9-inch screen.

Another report by the agency has said the California-based company will launch its next generation of iPads around mid-October as Apple prepares for the holiday season by boosting its product lineup.

Apple has already unveiled its Apple Watch, two larger iPhones and a mobile payments service dubbed "Apple Pay" last week.

The Tim Cook-led company sold 13.3 million iPads in the quarter ended June, falling short of analysts' projections for more than 14 million.
