Apple tease 30th October iPad Pro reveal

Apple tease 30th October iPad Pro reveal

They'd be the first iOS devices with USB-C, and could suggest Apple plans to push the iPad Pro more strongly as a laptop alternative.

What happened is, Apple held its Special Event 2018 on September 12 where many products were expected to launch but Apple prioritized Apple iPhone XS, XS Max, and XS, along with Apple Watch Series 4 and HomePod.

Apple, thinking about the 2-in-1 and convertible tablets that come from Windows, and without having a Mac with a touchscreen as an alternative, still considers that its iPad Pro tablets can replace PCs.

Apple's current-generation iPad models share a number of design features with the iPhone models that were introduced around the same time.


As noted by The Verge, Apple released a wide variety of invite designs for this event, perhaps hinting that it would be aimed at creators - the people it wants to buy its Mac computers and iPad Pro devices.

Likely we'll see a new version of the iPad Pro and, if we're lucky, perhaps even a peek at the upcoming refresh of the Mac Pro, which is set to arrive early next year. It's also been reported that this year's iPad Pro will switch over from Lightning to USB-C and be available in 11- and 12.9-inch display sizes. The company may also unveil the Apple AirPower. A new version of Apple Pencil is also likely. Actually, the new iPad Pro we've seen on several rendering, writes itc.ua. This low-priced notebook could be an updated MacBook Air. Coupled with the impending launch of the iPhone XR, Apple is poised to have yet another monster holiday quarter. It is also the company's second gathering outside its home turf of California in 2018; the last time it held an event in NY was in 2012.

There is also the possibility of seeing new MacBooks on October 30.

The report also mentioned a new Mac Mini desktop as well, aimed primarily at pro users and app developers. We don't think Apple will jump to OLED displays for reasons of cost and panel supply.
