Apple ready to unveil new iPad and  Mac devices on October 30

It seems Apple is all set to unveil its next set of new hardware for this year on October 30. The event will take place at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House in New York City, according to a media invite sent out by the company. The keynote is expected to start by 10:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time. At the unveiling, the Cupertino-based electronics giant is expected to showcase a refreshed lineup of iPads and Macs.

Although the media invite specifies nothing more than, “There’s more in the making”, it’s safe to assume that the company is referring to a redesigned version of the iPad Pro. We can expect to see a sizeable upgrade on the new 11-inch and 12.9-inch variants of the popular tablet. The new models may well ditch Touch ID for good and go with Face ID,  the screen-unlocking technology the current iPhones boast of. We can expect thinner bezels and fuller screens on the new design. If we’re lucky, there won’t be a notch on the display.

Along with a refreshed iPad Pro lineup, Apple is expected to showcase a new MacBook. Apart from the 12-inch version it’s also expected to launch a 13-inch version, which could be the successor to the long-standing MacBook Air. The current 12-inch MacBook and the MacBook Pro without a Touch Bar stay the same and have yet to see a refresh. Apple could also showcase a new Mac Mini, which hasn’t seen an update in years now. There’s a chance the iMac lineup too will get an update, with features like a True Tone display.

According to a report by 9to5Mac, Apple could also shelve the cylindrical Mac Pro to introduce an ‘iMac Pro’.  The redesigned Mac Pro was introduced in 2013 at a time when critics thought Apple was no longer capable of innovation. If the iMac Pro does realise, then a standard desktop-like version of the Mac computer, as we knew it, will vanish. Other reports also say that Apple could launch a new version of its stylus, the Apple Pencil, which currently works on the iPad range.
