Apple announces October 30th NYC event, new iPads and Macs expected

Apple Special Event is scheduled at 10:00 am EDT (7:30 pm IST) in Brooklyn on October 30.

And while we've been waiting for an official invite to land for that event, the wait is finally over. "The invite sent by Apple adds 'There's more in the making". This should be considered a near-term catalyst for unit growth and confidence in management to hit the Street's financial targets has increased.

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.

This isn't the first time we've heard rumors about Apple weaning itself off of Lightning, but the number of corroborating reports claiming the next iPad Pro will be the first Apple tablet to have a USB-C port continues to grow.

While giving away little, it is widely expected that the company will be introducing new iPads and MacBooks.

Rob Gronkowski doesn't travel to Chicago, unlikely for Patriots
The New England Patriots officially downgraded tight end Rob Gronkowski to out for their upcoming kickoff Sunday at Chicago. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Gronkowski is not expected to play Sunday against the Bears.

Last refreshed in 2017, Apple's iPad Pros are due for an update.

Perhaps Apple was sick and exhausted of people trying to pick apart secret meanings in its invite imagery, so made a decision to come up with 370 different styles of the Apple logo to really get people talking.

As rumoured, Apple has just announced that it will be holding an event on October 30 at Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House, New York, US.

Of course, device makers are third-hand sources when it comes to Apple's future plans, but they also frequently have an inside track on what's going on. Also, there is a possibility of the new MacBook Air with 9 gen Intel processors breaking covers.

There have been growing rumours that Apple will also launch an updated version of the Apple Pencil, aka the Apple Pencil 2.

Apple could give release details for AirPower, a wireless charger for iPhones and Apple Watches announced a year ago, as well as second-generation AirPods headphones that work with it.
