Apple analysts, including Ming-Chi Kuo, believe the company will shrink down the bezels around the iPad Pro's display, ditch the Home button and add a TrueDepth front camera similar to the one that appears on current iPhone X models.

Japanese blog Mac Otakara is now getting in on the action. Apple has propped up demand with cheaper models and the more-capable iPad Pro, which works with a keyboard.


Apple has promised professional users a new Mac Pro, but that's not supposed to launch until 2019, so we're not expecting to see it later this month. The tablet is expected to come in two sizes - a 12.9-inch version and a smaller 11-inch version. Apart from the iPhone, Apple has already refreshed its new MacBook Pro lineup with the latest 8th gen Intel Core processors.

As rumoured, Apple has just announced that it will be holding an event on October 30 at Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House, New York, US.


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. You can read a round-up of all the 2018 iPad Pro rumours and leaks here. It would also be an opportune time to launch the AirPower wireless charging pad that has gone unspoken of for much of the past year. Specifically, the MacBook Air is expected to be refreshed at this event.

The Mac Mini desktop computer has not been updated since 2014, despite its cult following.


Apple is finally coming to the Big Apple for a big product release.
