SAN FRANCISCO -- Apple is expected to round out its lineup of gadgets for the holiday shopping season with the unveiling of its latest iPads today.

The San Francisco showcase is likely to feature remodelled versions of Apple's standard-sized iPad with a 10-inch display screen and the iPad Mini with a nearly eight-inch screen. Apple Inc. hasn't shared details about what's on the agenda. The Cupertino, Calif., company merely sent out invitations that said, "We still have a lot to cover."

Apple's secrecy notwithstanding, glimpses of the revamped iPads have been showing up in Internet videos, including on websites that provided early, accurate peeks at the new iPhones Apple rolled out last month.

If the unauthorized previews of the new iPads are correct, this year's standard-sized model is getting a more noticeable makeover than last year. It's expected to be even thinner and lighter than its predecessor and designed more like the iPad Mini, with slimmer sides and tighter curves on the back. Apple is also expected to introduce new versions of its smart covers -- the polyurethane shields that attach to iPads to protect the screen. Apple will probably add its high-definition "Retina Display" to the iPad Mini to stay competitive.

Both sizes of iPad almost certainly will come with iOS 7, Apple's latest mobile operating system, already installed. The new operating software has been available to download on most of the previous generations of the iPad since last month.
