Apple to launch new iPads, MacBook, and Mac mini on October 30

Apple pens date for expected Mac updates Apple's October 30 Event: What to Expect

Well now, Apple has scheduled a "Special Event" later this month on October 30 where it's expected to announce some more products. The show will will kick off at 10am ET and as the numerous different invites sent to the media, including Pocket-lint, point out, will focus on creativity. The new iPad Pro would thus introduce the types of navigation gestures used on the iPhone X and iPhone XS, according to some reports.

Apple already unveiled new versions of its phones and watches in September.

There have been growing rumours that Apple will also launch an updated version of the Apple Pencil, aka the Apple Pencil 2. Also, the MacBook Air hasn't received many updates off lately and it is also a few generations behind the actual intel cores that are in use by other tablets and laptops. The event - dubbed "there's more in the making" - will likely be "less impactful " compared to the iPhone launch but nevertheless incrementally contribute to the overall business. Apple may launch two variants of iPad with 11- and 12.9-inch display sizes. However, there have also been some reports about a "pro" variant which is dubbed as the "Mac mini Pro".

Yes, that means come Halloween, Australia will likely have a new iPad Pro available for order or pre-order, and likely alongside something else.

This adds credence to the rumors that Apple's upcoming iPad Pro models might ditch Apple's proprietary Lightning connector for the USB-C standard. Well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that there will be a significant display performance upgrade and a processor refresh.

It was just last month that Apple announced three new iPhones and its latest smartwatch, but it turns out the company isn't done for the year.

Of course, device makers are third-hand sources when it comes to Apple's future plans, but they also frequently have an inside track on what's going on. It's expected to slot in beneath the 12-inch MacBook as the company's new low-priced laptop option.
