Apple event: Apple announces October 30th event, here's what it may launch

Apple pens date for expected Mac updates Apple's October 30 Event: What to Expect

Apple has just sent out press invites for a special event in NY on October 30.

Apple is expected to unveil a new line of iPad Pro 2018 series in Brooklyn later this month.

Apple has invited the media to an October event in New York City on the 30 October with all clues pointing to the launch of a new iPad Pro. But still, it felt as though new iPhones and Apple Watches were only part of the equation.

Rumors are circulating that the tech giant could be set to roll out two new versions of the iPad Pro, both of which are expected to feature larger screens.

On paper, it sounds kind of surprising, but the reports claiming that Apple will include a USB-C port instead of its proprietary Lightning are certainly racking up.

Apple typically streams the event live on its website and on Apple TV. Also, there is a possibility of the new MacBook Air with 9 gen Intel processors breaking covers.

When Apple launched the iPad in 2010, it quickly became one of the company's most important products. Given the focus of the venue at which the event is being held, music could point towards refreshed AirPods, although admittedly that could be too far of a stretch.

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

Also according to each news outlet, the invites are all unique for the company colors and as it's at the Opera House, could the graphics be dancing? The iPhone XR, a lower-cost iPhone with a almost all-screen front, goes on sale on October 26.
