  • Apple pens date for expected Mac updates

Lastly in terms of computers, it is possible that Apple will tease the new Mac Pro ahead of an expected 2019 launch.

Japanese technology news website Macotakara spoke to a range of accessory makers at the Global Sources Mobile Electronics trade show in Hong Kong, and was told the iPad Pro 2018 would have a USB-C port rather than a Lightning port. The firm confirmed the event details in one of their Apple Events webpage. If legit, this means the smaller iPad Pro model will measure in at 178mm wide and 247mm tall, while the larger-screened model will come in at 215mm x 280mm.

As first reported by Neil Cybart, Apple has announced a media event for October 30, 2018 at 10:00 am Eastern.

Many are expecting the iPad Pro 2018 to take an iPhone Xs-esque approach to unlocking, by dropping the home button and instead including TrueDepth cameras to allow Face ID.

Something to look forward to: As the holiday season inches closer, Apple has one more event to pull out some new gadgets before shopping commences. The headphone jack might also be cut from the tablet.

The new slim and light machine will occupy the space between the 12-inch MacBook and Apple's new "low-cost" laptop. Device identifiers suggest that we're going to see the new iPad Pro models boast the same display resolution as the current lineup.

A successor to the MacBook Air is expected to debut at this NY event. The new Mac mini desktop will focus on professional users. As always, we will be covering the event and keep you posted on what's coming down the pipeline.
