New overhauled iPad Pro design confirmed in iOS code

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

The long-rumoured iPad Pro redesign will be the first significant change to Apple's iOS-based tablet since the release of the 12.9in iPad Pro in 2015. When AirPower was absent from Apple's iPhone event back in September, it seemed like the company might have over-promised and needed to go back to the drawing board. But Bloomberg believes that the low-priced, barebones computer, which ships without a screen, keyboard, or mouse, is on deck to get a "pro" upgrade like the iMac did. Both models, while not including a notch, will offer Face ID in both portrait and landscape orientations.

The iMac, MacBook and MacBook Pro without Touch Bar are now sold with seventh-generation Intel Core chips, and are anticipated to see updates to the newer eighth-generation components at some point in the near future. It's already happened in the 2018 iPhone models, and now it's the iPad Pro's turn.

Apple's event will take place at an opera house in Brooklyn, and invitations were accompanied by creative renditions of the Apple logo, suggesting that the new products will be tied to the theme of art and content creation, whether that means app development or illustration. The upcoming event will not only feature new iPads, but word on the street is that Apple might finally launch a low-power notebook that's regularly surfaced on the rumor mill this year. Additionally, the pair of new iPad Pro tablets will come with a USB-C port.

The icon shows the 2018 iPad with rounded corners and thinner bezels on all the four sides.

The iPad Pro is the best tablet you can buy right now but it's also very expensive.

A USB-C connector for charging and syncing data, the first time Apple is bringing this charging standard to its iOS devices. Just this week, Kuo published an analyst note wherein the iPad Mini line is still alive. That's especially true with the Mac Mini, which hasn't been upgraded in years. There could be a new design for the Apple Pencil as well.

Alongside the new iPad Pro, it's possible Apple will announce a handful of new accessories.

The Mac Mini rises from the dead?

As usual, there'll be a live stream available on the Apple website. One is a new entry-level MacBook, this time believed to be a 13-inch replacement to the MacBook Air or a larger member of the 12-inch MacBook line.

Apple's wireless earbuds, AirPods, have been included in rumors, with the anticipation of an updated feature set that includes Siri integration and a wireless charging case.
