Apple pens date for expected Mac updates

More in the making

It has been over a year since Apple released its last iPad Pro, and while one year normally marks the time between releases, Apple has been largely silent about its keyboard-connecting, Pencil-friendly iPad.

Apple said it will hold a product announcement on October 30 in the NY borough of Brooklyn, likely to unveil new iPads and Mac computers.

Judging by the colourful doodles on the invites, it can be expected that Apple will be unveiling new software for its tablets - particularly, a version of Adobe Photoshop, which was recently demonstrated and is slated to ship for the iPad Pro in 2019. In the same way, the Touch ID will be replaced with the Face ID, embedded in the front of the iPad.

Apple is all set to host another hardware event on October 30 in which the Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to reveal new iPad Pro models along with new Macbooks and there could be a new Macbook Air as well. Who knows, Apple can astound us with a new Mac Mini. At $329, the 9.7-inch tablet is Apple's cheapest iPad and fine for most people. The updated iPad Pro is expected to feature slimmer bezels and rounded corners apart from the inclusion of Face ID, no notch and no Home button. The gadget hasn't been improved since its inception, and while it's a perfectly capable tool that would unlock your creativity, Apple is likely to have come up with an even more awesome update to the gadget.

The technology blog identified a device icon last month that looked remarkably different from previous illustrations included in Apple's mobile operating systems. Just like before Apple event, leak images and news reports about the next Apple devices starts to flood the internet. Along with its long-awaited refresh of its MacBook Air.

The report also mentioned a new Mac Mini desktop as well, aimed primarily at pro users and app developers.

Apple previously announced it was also working on a wireless charging case for AirPods to work with its long-delayed AirPower charging mat. There are multiple variations of the apple logo as shown above and it changes when you reload the events page.

Apple's current-generation iPad models share a number of design features with the iPhone models that were introduced around the same time.
