Apple to hold October 30 event in NY

What to expect from Apple's October 30 event New iPad Pro Apple Pencil 2 new Macs Apple's October 30 Event: What to Expect

The event will be live-streamed as expected and it is interesting to note that this will be the second Apple product launch outside of California this year.

This is all we know as of now. As reported by 9to5Mac, the new Apple Pencil will be paired with iPad Pro by proximity, much like AirPods or HomePod, meaning switching between devices will be possible without connecting the Apple Pencil to the charging port of the tablet.

The company's official page has vibrant purple and orange painted Apple insignia with bubbles and everytime the page is refreshed, it changes to a new design, giving away the hint that it has a new iPad series. It claims to have talked to numerous accessory makers at the Global Sources Mobile Electronics Trade Fair in Hong Kong this week, all of which said the 2018 iPad Pro would feature USB-C instead of Lightning.

It can be noted that Cupertino-based company already unveiled the generic iPad (6 Gen), earlier this year.

Several question marks remain ahead of the product launch with potential surprise announcements including the delayed AirPower charger, according to The Verge.

It's widely believed that Apple will reveal a new iPad Pro and potentially some updates to its Macbook lineup. We've recently shown off exclusive renders of the iPad Pro (12.9-inch) that will boast of a thin bezel design. Coupled with the impending launch of the iPhone XR, Apple is poised to have yet another monster holiday quarter. Assuming these new products remain relatively affordable, they could do a lot to sway potential customers from Windows options that have pulled far ahead in features and performance.

After updating the MacBook Pro, the best-selling Apple personal computer series, it would be time to upgrade the MacBook Air line, as well. As with the Apple Watch, it is likely that there will be plenty of deals and offers around iPhones as we get closer to the holidays, so, for that reason, it may be worth waiting.

The Mac mini has gone even longer with an update - now over four years.
