Apple set to launch new iPad Pro, MacBook at 30 October event


Apple is widely expected to announce at least one, likely two new iPad Pros in the coming weeks, and while we've had a few leaks here and there, there has been nothing on the scale of what we usually see when a new iPhone is on the horizon. It has sent out several unique invites with artistic and colourful Apple logo with a message-"There's more in the making"- to the media outlets. There are also rumors it may launch with a new Apple Pencil.

Apple's privacy tools now go beyond Europe, so more now get to download the personal data it has collected.

What will be under the lid when Apple unveils its new MacBooks?

The Apple Special Event is taking place at 10AM EDT on 30 October, which is at 10PM Malaysian time. Apple will also live stream the presentation.

As evidenced from the render below, Apple's iPad Pro models will borrow some heavy design cues from the iPhone X in the sense that the home button has been removed entirely and replaced with Face ID.

When Apple launched its new iPhones back in September, the company did a good job of fleshing out its handset lineup with the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. We'll keep you posted on these details as we learn them, but will be bringing you all the latest from the event on the day. The new Mac mini desktop will focus on professional users. It's unclear whether this device will have a new redesign or simply updated specs. It's also worth mentioning that Apple's next-gen iPad Pro models will reportedly ship without a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.
