Apple is Announcing New Stuff Tomorrow

  • What to Expect From Apple's October Mac Event

The company will offer the event livestream on the Apple website, as well as through the Apple TV app.

The Mac Mini rises from the dead? Apart from the tablet, Apple is expected to announce a newer Pencil stylus and it will still likely to be sold separately. It will be held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the theme of the event is "making".

The iPad Pro update comes at an important time for the device, which hasn't been refreshed since mid-2017, and is the most significant in the product's history.

A new iPad Pro is chief among the expectations, with multiple specifics floating around the web.

He attacked "hysteria" in the reporting of what happened to Khashoggi, who was invited into a Saudi consulate in Istanbul then killed .

The icon's lack of a traditional Home button also seems to indicate that the new iPad Pro will carry Face ID unlock functionality powered by a front-facing camera (which should be easy enough to hide within the tablet's top bezel area). Face ID will enable Animojis (and the personalized variety known as Memojis) on iPads for the first time.

The iPad Pro may launch in both sizes - 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch and is said to get a FaceID and a Type C USB port for charging and data transfer.

The new tablet is also expected to embrace the USB-C connector, replacing the long-standing Lightning connector that has been used in the iPhone and iPad since 2012.

Also: I tried to write this article on an iPad Pro. There's still a lot we don't know about these devices, though, and Tuesday will be the day for filling in the blanks. A revised MacBook, in whatever form it might come, would likely be a low-price option. The new MacBook Air will reportedly come with the same 13-inch screen size as the current Air, but the screen resolution is where will be the difference. The 13-inch screen size suggests a new version of the MacBook Air, which got a modest spec boost previous year, to the then already-dated 5th Generation "Broadwell" family of mobile CPUs. Rumours suggest that Apple will launch the successor to the MacBook Air, but the highlight of the event apart from the pair of iPad Pros could be the Mini MacBook, which will basically target countries like India. Any upgrade should include 8th-generation Intel processors. This will be either an 8th Generation "Coffee Lake" chip or an even newer "Whiskey Lake" CPU. It would make the tablet compatible with more accessories, but the Lightning port is also a licensing revenue stream for Apple, so that upgrade still seems like a long shot. There are no guarantees that's what we'll get, of course, but it would follow both tradition and current rumor. Best guesses: PCI Express NVMe SSDs, 8th Generation CPUs. It has been mentioned only briefly in rumors, but there is clearly demand, and it hasn't been updated since 2014.
