Apple Event Invite - October 2018

Apple Sends Invites for The Apple Event on October 30

After much speculation and anticipation, Apple has announced a new Apple Event where we expect to see new iPads and potentially a refresh of the Mac mini and MacBook.  The event will be held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House on October 30.  It will start at 10:00 am Eastern, which is 7:00 am Pacific.

The big product announcement for the event is expected to be the new iPad Pro lineup.  Sticking with the LCD display, it is expected that the new iPads will sport a near bezel-less design and will ditch the Home button, just as the new iPhone lineup has done.  It is also expect that the iPad Pro will move to USB-C charging versus Lightning, brining it inline with the latest MacBook and MacBook Pro devices.

Speaking of MacBook, we likely will see a refresh of the entry level laptops from Apple.  This will likely involve the latest Intel Core-M and iCore processors.

We should also, finally, see an update to the Mac mini.  The mini hasn’t seen an update since 2014, a massive amount of time between updates and has led to many assuming that it was destined to be retired.  Rumors have persisted however of a new update coming with a significant upgrade to internals.

Apple will be streaming the event live and you can view it here or you can view it through the Events feature on your Apple TV.
