Well it’s time for new iPads and Macs
Apple plans to host an event on October 30th in Brooklyn, New York. While the company never actually says what it’s announcing, Apple is widely expected to introduce new iPads and Mac computers.
The invitation to media reads, “There’s more in the making,” without specifying what would be introduced. The Cupertino, California-based technology giant is planning the biggest revamp to the iPad Pro since it first went on sale in 2015, as well as a lower-cost MacBook laptop and a new Mac mini desktop, Bloomberg News reported earlier this year. Rumor has it that new iPad Pros will get bigger displays and lose the Touch ID fingerprint-sensing home button in favor of Apple’s Face ID facial-recognition technology. The tablets may also have USB-C connectivity, as well as updated Apple Pencil styluses. And Apple may finally redesign its popular but outdated $999 MacBook Air. At the very least, the computer should get faster processors and other updated components.
When Apple launched the iPad in 2010, it quickly became one of the company’s most important products. However, iPad sales have slowed in recent years in favour of laptops and other larger screen devices. Apple has propped up demand with cheaper models and the more-capable iPad Pro, which works with a keyboard.
