It looks like it's finally official: Oct. 22 will be the date that Apple finally shows off the 2013 Retina MacBook Pro with the new Intel Haswell processor.

Apple sent out press invites for an event Oct. 22 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. The Cupertino giant will be kicking things off 10 a.m. PST and stated in the invitation that "We still have a lot to cover," hinting at a slew of new offerings.

A new Retina MacBook Pro is expected to be one of the stars of the show and one of the devices Apple will show off OS X 10.9 Mavericks through. While there's been no word on when the new Retina MacBook Pros will be available for purchase, a recent rumor from French website MacG states that the laptops should go on sale Oct. 24 or Oct. 25.

Not much is known about the 2013 Retina MacBook Pro other than that it should contain the new Intel Haswell processor. If statistics align properly, the new Haswell processors should give the new MacBook Pros up to a 60 percent boost in performance as well as a greatly-extended battery life. The new MacBook Pros should also have the new Thunderbolt 2 port and there's even been some talk of a 4K display, although it seems highly unlikely.

Apple will also be announcing a new iPad and new iPad mini at the Oct. 22 event.
