Apple confirms iPad and Macbook event will happen on October 30

Apple will unveil a new product at a mystery event on October 30.

Something to look forward to: As the holiday season inches closer, Apple has one more event to pull out some new gadgets before shopping commences. A new version of Apple Pencil is also likely. Check them out here. Rumors tip new iPads that will add Face ID and ditch the Home button, like the iPhone XS and XR.

When it comes to entry-level laptops, the current MacBook Air in its current form has been in the market for an extended period of time. The event will be held at 12:00 and will be dedicated to the presentation of the new iPad Pro and Mac, as well as other possible surprises. Although this time, Apple is headed to the Brooklyn Academy of Music in NY for its next product unveilings.

Japanese technology news website Macotakara spoke to a range of accessory makers at the Global Sources Mobile Electronics trade show in Hong Kong, and was told the iPad Pro 2018 would have a USB-C port rather than a Lightning port.

We'll be there in New York City live when the event takes place on the 30th, so we'll keep you abreast of the big news as and when Apple announces it. Stay tuned!

We will probably also see some new iMacs with updated hardware features. If legit, this means the smaller iPad Pro model will measure in at 178mm wide and 247mm tall, while the larger-screened model will come in at 215mm x 280mm. Some believe the cheaper model will feature 8th generation Intel Core CPUs and Touch ID fingerprint sensors, but won't include the touchscreen Touch Bar found on MacBook Pros.

More new Apple devices are coming.

The Mac mini has gone even longer with an update - now over four years. We are still waiting for the wireless charging case for the truly wireless headphones, the AirPods.
