Apple to unveil iPad, MacBook laptop overhauls October 30

Share

The invite sent out by Apple doesn't mention what this October 30 event is going to be all about.

Apple introduced the notch on the iPhone X at its September event past year. It is rumored that Apple will announce new iPads and Macs during the event.

We might also see what's become of Apple's AirPower charging pad, and possibly a change or two for other accessories. The event page is titled as "Apple Special Event" followed by other details.

Of course, Apple has plenty more in store for fans ahead of the 2018 holiday shopping season. In addition to this, there will be a new USB-C port, which will replace the Lightning to allow video output up to 4K.

It can be noted that Cupertino-based company already unveiled the generic iPad (6 Gen), earlier this year.

According to numerous rumors emerged in recent weeks, Apple should launch the new iPad Pro from 11 and 12.9 inches with a borderless display similar to that of the latest iPhone of the "X" generation. While it's true that Apple has a huge product catalog that continues to expand each year, the iPhone is still the company's most important and most popular product by a huge margin.

There's plenty of speculation that the new tablets Apple could reveal will follow the design of the iPhone by dropping the Home button and the bezels and relying completely on FaceID.

We will probably also see some new iMacs with updated hardware features. The current Mac mini starts at $499 - the MacBook Air at $999. The iPhone XS and XS Max are available now, the XR goes on sale Friday and the older 7 and 8 lines have been discounted.

Which instantly got us thinking that an updated pair of AirPods could be on the way.

At Apple's now-confirmed 30 October event, which will take place in New York City at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Apple is also likely to take the wraps off of its long-awaited successor to the MacBook Air.

The report also mentioned a new Mac Mini desktop as well, aimed primarily at pro users and app developers.
