Apple lines up another launch event, scheduled for 30th Oct

After weeks of speculation, Apple finally sent out invitations out for a new October media event, set to kick off on October 30th.

"There's more in the making", reads the invite that Gadgets 360 received, with an Apple logo in blue with little skyscrapers in the middle, representing what looks like the NY skyline. No matter what is actually announced, Apple will once again be live-streaming the event for those of you who are not able to be present. This means this would be the first iPad without a Home button, which all houses the fingerprint scanner. You can read a round-up of all the 2018 iPad Pro rumours and leaks here.

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.


The iPad Pro has a giant battery, and to me it's always seemed like a no-brainer for Apple to offer the ability to charge an iPhone using an iPad. This particular image is likely of the case, with a render of the 2018 12.9-inch iPad Pro based on the CAD leak we saw earlier in the year.

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. It will also ditch Touch ID and the audio jack. Apple doesn't usually launch new products in NY, often opting for a venue closer to its home base in Cupertino, California.

It's also possible that Apple will update the specs on its iMac computers, which were last updated in June 2017. There's also the Mac mini, which has not been updated since 2014.
