Apple to Unveil iPad and MacBook Laptop Overhauls on Oct. 30


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

Apple is expected to launch new iPads and potentially laptops at the Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn, New York on October 30. Press invites for the event feature various Apple logo designs, with the same handwritten-style tagline: "There's more in the making". Apple doesn't usually launch new products in NY, often opting for a venue closer to its home base in Cupertino, California.

Apple launched new iPhones and Apple Watches last month, so analysts expect Apple to launch new iPad Pros and MacBook laptops at this month's event. Apart from the iPhone, Apple has already refreshed its new MacBook Pro lineup with the latest 8th gen Intel Core processors.

Mac Otakara goes on to state that manufacturers at the trade show cited a photo of the 2018 iPad Pro's dimensions.

The new iPad Pro is the biggest and fastest Apple tablet to date.

All that said, we'd still take these claims with a huge dose of salt, because it seems so at odds with Apple's usual approach to hardware, and because Apple is so invested in Lightning and the accessories that work with it.

The new iPhone XR will be available to pre-order from tomorrow but that's not the only launch coming from Apple in October. However, iPad sales have slowed in recent years in favor of laptops and other larger screen devices. Along with its long-awaited refresh of its MacBook Air. Reports suggest the new iPad will sport thinner bezels (mostly reduced top and bottom bezels), support Face ID in both portrait and landscape, and ditch the Lightning port for USB-C (yes, really).
