London: Tech giant Apple has reportedly sent out invites for a special event on October 23, at which the firm is likely to unveil a smaller version of its iPad.

The invite, headlined 'We've got a little more to show you', said the Apple event will take place on October 23rd at the California Theater in San Jose, close to San Francisco.

According to the Telegraph, Apple is widely expected to unveil a new, smaller iPad at next week's event.

The new device is expected to have a 7.85-inch screen, compared with the existing iPad's 10-inch display, the paper said.
