  • Apple pens date for expected Mac updates

It's widely believed that Apple will reveal a new iPad Pro and potentially some updates to its Macbook lineup. Tipster Ming-Chi Kuo has said in a report that while the 12.9-inch iPad Pro could see a refreshed version this year, Apple may also introduce a brand new 11-inch model.

Japanese blog Mac Otakara is now getting in on the action. The firm confirmed the event details in one of their Apple Events webpage. The model expected to launch on October 30 is the 2018 version of the iPad Pro.

So to round out the rest of its 2018 gadget releases, Apple is holding another event on October 30 at the Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn, and invites have already started trickling out.

The recent iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR all have a Lightning port, so it seems odd that Apple would offer a different port on its tablet range.

Dana White wants to see Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Fergsuon next
But UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, who is a teammate of Nurmagomedov, declared the match-up a joke. Mayweather hasn't fought since and has been spending his time travelling the world.

Apple is planning the biggest revamp to the iPad Pro since it first went on sale in 2015.

A successor to the MacBook Air is expected to debut at this NY event.

The new iPads will inherit features from the latest iPhones, bringing Face ID and a almost all-screen look to the company's tablets for the first time, people familiar with the product told Bloomberg earlier this year. Apple doesn't usually launch new products in NY, often opting for a venue closer to its home base in Cupertino, California. A Mac Mini refresh is also in the cards. We'll have to see if Apple alters the security measure to reflect this. It is still uncertain if the iPads are the only products Apple will unveil.
