IOS 12 icon essentially confirms iPad Pro redesign

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

The new iPas Pro is also reportedly dropping Apple's Lightning charging format in favour of the USB-C system already used in the Apple MacBook and in most new Android smartphones. The event is going down in Brooklyn, and is invite only. Rumours suggest that Apple will launch the successor to the MacBook Air, but the highlight of the event apart from the pair of iPad Pros could be the Mini MacBook, which will basically target countries like India. That will leave the iPhone as the only high profile Apple device to use the Lightning connector. Unlike with iPhones, Face ID will work in both portrait and landscape orientations. The iPad Pro models, which have larger screens, better cameras and faster processors, are more expensive, which has sustained revenue growth.

Tomorrow Apple has yet another big product announcement, and this one is focused on the iPad. Details about those new Macs, however, are less than what we've heard for the new iPad Pros which will undoubtedly be the stars of that show. While all these are mere speculations for now, the latest piece of information confirming the new iPad design comes directly from Apple as a part of the latest iOS 12 update. It's very possible there will be more than one model of this new iPad Pro, varying either in size or storage capacity (or both).

A USB-C connector for charging and syncing data, the first time Apple is bringing this charging standard to its iOS devices.

It nearly seems like Apple has forgotten about the iPad Mini, or is happy to let the product die as it pushes the iPad towards being a more powerful computer replacement. The new iPad Pro slates also will support the next generation Apple Pencil 2 writing accessory. In some ways it's freakish that Apple hasn't thought to upgrade it in so long, but there's not much that needs changing in the way of the design - it's the internals that are going to get a bump if an upgrade is coming. The latter would be a big upgrade over the existing Mac mini, which has languished without an update since 2014.

Ever since the introduction of the new 12in MacBook in 2015, Apple has been expected to either drop the MacBook Air from sale or update it. As usual, there'll be a live stream available on the Apple website. 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.
