Apple's October 30 Event: What to Expect

Apple pens date for expected Mac updates

It was rumoured that Apple would indeed have another keynote planned this year, and it seems like the rumours were true for once. They also tell where the Apple Special Event will be taking place: The Brooklyn Academy of Music in NY.

The recent Apple event saw the launch of a few new iPhones and an Apple Watch, but Apple still has a lot more products in its portfolio which is why the company is scheduling another event on October 30 in Brooklyn, New York.

Apple announced the presentation of the new iPad Pro and Mac computers. Additionally, a new light and thinner and affordable MacBook is also expected to be introduced, featuring Touch ID and fingerprint sensor.

Apple is also likely to bring the new Pencil stylus with improved sensitivity and also offer longer battery life.

Beyond the "creativity" approach, the event could focus on updates to the iPad Pro, a new Apple Pencil 2, and possibly several Mac models including a refreshed version of the MacBook Air, and what some Apple hopefuls believe is a refreshed Mac Mini.

Delhi Records Season's Worst Air Quality: CPCB
It has forecast even worse indices for Sunday - 359 (PM10) and 211 (PM2.5). Delhi pollution is back again and that too to stay for a long time now.

This is all we know as of now. Those new Macs are also good bets for the 30 October event. It can be bought from leading e-retail store like Flipkart, Croma and authorised Apple resellers like imagine as well. The previous generation iPad Pro comes with Apple A10X Fusion with M10 co-processor.

Apple started going gaga about bezel less smartphone design starting 2017 and this year has been much more pronounced as the company didn't release any new phones with bezels unlike last year's iPhone 8. It is, however, the second Apple product launch outside of California this year. The technology giant is all set to launch new iPads and laptops in the event.

The site also says that the companies were showing off a photo of the 2018 iPad Pro dimensions that was first shared on Slashleaks last week.

A report from Bloomberg earlier this year suggests that Apple will give the buds a modest upgrade later this year, adding a new chip and the ability to summon Siri with just your voice, something that was backed by Kuo in his report. If none is made, it may be best to wait a bit more to see what bombshell awaits curious Apple loyalists.
