ANOTHER APPLE EVENT FOR 30 OCTOBER – HERE'S WHAT TO EXPECTDate: 2018-10-24
Apple sure has been busy this year, announcing three new handsets a few months ago, brand new iOS updates across the board, and some rumours about other hardware to follow.
We'll likely see the company's new iPad Pro and Mac products at their just-announced 30 October event in New York. The company sent out unique invite designs to a bunch of media across the world with a tagline that reads "There's more in the making" – which possibly indicates that there's something coming that we don't know about… yet.
What to expect at the event
All the Apple fans will most likely see a new iPad Pro, which is rumoured to have slim bezels and Face ID, which will render the fingerprint reader useless and therefore will most probably be removed. It has also been reported that this update will feature a USB-C port to replace the traditional lightening port and the device will be available with larger 11-inch and 12.9-inch display sizes. The goal being to make the iPad Pro powerful enough to replace your laptop.
Fans can also expect the long-awaited successor to the MacBook Air laptop. The device will look similar to the Air but will feature a thinner bezel and an upgraded display, according to Bloomberg.
A new Mac Mini might also make its way to the Apple event this month, something that will excite desktop Mac-lovers. There hasn't been an update since 2014, and this time Apple is reportedly focussing on power users and developers.
Other than that, we don’t know what else to expect. Judging by the event tagline, there will likely be at least one more Apple-branded device (or even software, for that matter) that we’re not expecting.
Be sure to check it all out on 30 October to find out more about the Apple updates.
