The new iPads could also introduce a USB-C charging port to the iOS family for the first time, so that they share connectivity with Apple's laptops, and if the rumours are true they will also mark the first time a custom Apple graphics chip has been used in an iPad. Between the location of the event and the subtle hints that Apple is known for leaving in its invites, it's safe to say this event is going to be focused on creating.
Apple announced three new iPhones including the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max in its September keynote event. Both models, while not including a notch, will offer Face ID in both portrait and landscape orientations. There were some whose hopes were dashed when such a new mini computer didn't appear at Apple's iPhone-centric even last month. It's from Bloomberg and serves mostly to summarize all details that have surfaced so far for the 2018 iPad Pro refresh. CNET will have a group of veteran Apple watchers live blogging on the scene backed up by dozens more around the world.
If anyone still needs to be convinced that the iPad Pro series is about to undergo a major facelift, the most compelling evidence yet has come to light.
A USB-C connector for charging and syncing data, the first time Apple is bringing this charging standard to its iOS devices.
After iPhone spying report, China suggests Trump switch to Huawei
President Trump began his Thursday morning by blaming the attempted assassination of his political adversaries on the media. He did not immediately address the report's key finding, that Chinese and Russian spies were listening to his calls .
And what about the iPad Mini?
Last updated back in 2014, the Mac Mini technically isn't completely dead yet, but it sure seems like Apple is keeping it on minimal life support to appease home theatre enthusiasts and app developers who don't need a powerhouse machine.
But the new MacBook Air is probably a more awaited product.
Alongside the new iPad Pro, it's possible Apple will announce a handful of new accessories.
Prices start from £619 but can rise to over £1,110 and that's before you've added the Apple Pencil stylus (£89) and Smart Keyboard case (£159). Wireless charging pads aren't uncommon at this point, and alongside an update to AirPods that could possibly include a new wireless chip that enables "Hey Siri" functionality (instead of having to physically double-tap your earbuds to activate it), we might finally be able to just plop our headphones down on a mat to top them off.
