Apple sends out invites for iPad Pro event on October 30th


In addition, the expected long-awaited update to MacBook Air-new model with a thin frame and a Retina display, which will be a more accessible alternative to the 12-inch MacBook.

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.

Apple may launch an affordable MacBook Air variant. The company also just yesterday introduced a new USB-C magnetic charger for its Apple Watch showing its readiness to accept Type-C as a charging port.

Media reports said the iPad Pro will have slim bezels, a new USB-C port and 11 inch or 12.9 inch display sizes.

There is also the possibility of seeing new MacBooks on October 30. 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 Mac Pro, meanwhile, is expected to receive its next update in 2019. It is also the company's second gathering outside its home turf of California in 2018; the last time it held an event in NY was in 2012.

The report also says a pricier water-resistant, noise-canceling version of AirPods is coming in 2019. Investors and tech enthusiasts will also be hoping to receive more information on the second generation AirPod headphones that work with the device. However, one thing is different this year, unlike previous years' the company will not hold the event in San Francisco or even the newly constructed Steve Jobs theater but rather in New York (Howard Gilman Opera House). No additional new iPhones are anticipated, though it's possible this could be where we see iOS 12.1 and all its new emoji.

For Australians, we'll learn about it all in the early hours of Wednesday October 31, so we'll have more info about that as the launch gets closer and it all happens!

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.
