The move appears to have been brought forward from the expected announcement date at the end of March or start of April and the new tablet will make its debut in San Francisco where it will be shown off to the wider world.
A retina screen with four times as many pixels as the current iPad on the market is expected to be the main point of attraction for the Apple fans eager to see what has changed.
Other advances for the iPad include a quad-core processor, unlike the dual-core A5 chip which presently is in the iPad 2, whilst the new Apple tablet will also offer 4G connectivity, allowing it to offer 100Mbps, a problem for iPhone products die to their heavy drainage on the battery.
No call has been made on if Apple will announce the launch of its new television system at the San Francisco conference, despite rumours circulating that the Cupertino company have lined up a form of Smart TV which it hopes to launch in the near future.
Reports from America suggest that the current incarnation of Apple TV is slowly being withdrawn from the shops, meaning that the firm will rework the plans.
The new launch is expected to be one of the most anticipated yet with Apple wanting to reassert its dominant position in the tablet market following expected challenges from Amazon’s Kindle and the new Windows 8 operating system.
