Apple announces October 30th NYC event, new iPads and Macs expected

Apple Inc. said it will hold a product announcement October 30 in Brooklyn, New York, likely to unveil new iPads and Mac computers.

"There's more in the making", reads the invite that Gadgets 360 received, with an Apple logo in blue with little skyscrapers in the middle, representing what looks like the NY skyline. So, what else could Apple launch?

Thanks to A12 Bionic, Apple iPhone XS and the XS Max including the iPhone XR series are powerful phones, which rival Android brands will take a year to match them. Apart from the iPhone, Apple has already refreshed its new MacBook Pro lineup with the latest 8th gen Intel Core processors.

Apple is expected to announce something before the end of October, although time is indeed starting to run out if an all-out event is going to be held.

Those policies are all seen as initiatives of Prince Mohammed, the son of King Salman, who is next in line to the throne. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met the Saudi king and crown prince on Tuesday to discuss the disappearance of Khashoggi.


On its website, Apple said the event will be live streamed. It is, however, the second Apple product launch outside of California this year. And the new tablets will also have the Smart Connector in a new spot, this time on the back of the device rather than the side. Lastly in terms of computers, it is possible that Apple will tease the new Mac Pro ahead of an expected 2019 launch.

The 10.5-inch iPad Pro might be retired and replaced with an 11-inch version, while the 12.9-inch will still remain - both will have a smaller footprint of course thanks to the slimmer bezels.

Beyond tablets, the company is planning an entry-level Mac with a high-resolution screen to succeed the once-popular MacBook Air. The new Mac mini desktop will focus on professional users.
