Apple to unveil new iPad Pro, MacBook Air this week

New iPad Pro, Macs, and more: The rumors ahead of Apple's Oct. 30 event

Here's what to expect from Apple's October 30 event: New iPad Pro, MacBook Air and AirPods 2

But other changes are coming to Apple's high-end tablets. Apple is also expected to bundle an 18W USB-C adapter along with a USB-A to USB-C cable with the new iPads for faster charging times. This icon shows an iPad with rounded corners, no Home button and no notch.

It's clearly not an edgeless display like what you see on the iPhone X, but it's certainly a more compelling form factor.

On the latest iPhone XS, Face ID still doesn't work in landscape mode and hopefully, Apple will address this on the latest iPad since it's going to be used in landscape mode a lot. Allegedly, there'll be an updated Apple Pencil and, as with the new iPhones, nearly edge-to-edge screens and slimmer bezels.

Things to know about iPhone XR before upgrading
As usual on an iPhone launch day, most Apple Stores are opening early at 8:00 a.m. local time, with display models now available. Of course, the standard iPhone 7 and 8 didn't have a second lens either, although their Plus models did, as did the iPhone X.

We're definitely expecting some new iPad Pros from Apple, with the latest refresh for this particular category of gadget happening back in June 2017.

MacBook Air successor is expected to be launching at tomorrow's event. Today, we've got the final few words on the 2018 iPad Pro refresh. The theme of the event is "making", and it will take place at the Brooklyn Academy of Music - both clues to how Apple plans to reignite sales of the products. It's now unclear what will be changed in this new Apple Pencil iteration, though extended battery life and a more efficient charging method are likely upgrades. A new iMac is also long overdue, since the current models are no longer available for purchase officially. The new MacBook Air will come with improved internals and also design and software. Now though, it looks like 9to5Mac has found a more substantial icon that can be treated as solid proof.

This also means there won't any fingerprint sensor at the base, as well and 2018 will mark the end of the revolutionary Touch ID, which made its debut with iPhone 5S will no longer feature in any of Apple products. This will be the most radical redesign yet similar to how the iPhone X had changed their smartphone appearance moving forward.

Apple's flagship tablet has always been considered as the best digital slate on the market and this latest update may cement its place as the number one.

The first update to the Mac Mini since 2014 will add new processors and features for professional users. Since then though, we haven't heard much about the charging pad, with rumours circulating that Apple's engineers have experienced significant manufacturing difficulties related to heat management and connectivity. It is expected that the fresh listing points at the anticipated Mac Mini and iMac upgrades.
