Apple pens date for expected Mac updates

Apple iPad Pro Preview

The Cupertino giant sent a fancy invitation with some exquisitely-designed logos to the media today for the event that will be held at the Howard Gilman Opera House in NY city. The invitation to the media said: "more in development", but it does not specify that it will be presented. Following in the footsteps of the iPhone X, both iPads are set to drop the home button in favour of Face ID for unlocking the device and verifying the owner's identity.

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.

Besides new iPad Pro series, Apple is expected to announce AirPod 2 with longer wireless earphone connectivity range and increased battery life.

As for the software announcements, most likely, tell us more about the new iOS 12.1, which adds the ability to adjust the bokeh effect in real time, activates the built-in SIM card and add support for group chats with FaceTime.

Apple typically positions the iPad as a tool for creating and graphic design. At the event on October 30, Apple is expected to announce two new iPad Pro models with bezel-less display as well as Face ID. Apple has developed a low-priced notebook with a Retina display, according to reports, and it would serve as a follow-up to the outdated MacBook Air.

Earlier this month the firm inadvertently shared plans for its hotly anticipated new iPad - and it could be coming as soon as next month. This month, we can expect to see one new Mac design that will be showcasing.

Apple's September press conferences are always the company's biggest events each year for obvious reasons.

Just weeks after holding an event to launch a new lineup of iPhones, Apple Inc.

Apple may launch an affordable MacBook Air variant.

There may also be a new Mac mini since this computer has not been updated for four years. Those who were considering the 13-inch Pro, 12-inch MacBook or MacBook Air should nearly certainly wait to see what Apple does here first.
