Apple's big keynote previewed: new iPad Pros and more

But expect plenty more power coming soon to the bigger screen of the iPad.

The highlight of Apple's October 30th event is going to be its 2018 iPad Pro lineup. This will allow the iPad Pro to connect to an external display, according to reports. The smaller 10.5-inch iPad Pro will see a slight bump in its display size to around 11-inches as well. All these three new Macs are expected to be a part of the forthcoming event where the Cupertino giant is also speculated to bring a new range of iPad Pro models with Face ID support. The iPhone X's and iPhone XS' Face ID authentication functionality will likely make its way to the 2018 iPad Pro, and as a result, the tablet is also rumoured to ditch Touch ID.

These were big improvements and helped make this device much more useful and user-friendly.

Rumors point to both iPad Pro models being 5.9mm slim which would make them thinner than the 6.1mm iPad Air 2.

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 Apple event this week follows the launch of its flagship devices iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS, besides the iPhone XR, in September.

Most likely, the new iPad Pro units will sport an A12X chip under the hood (an enhanced version of the SoC found inside the 2018 iPhones), and will be the first iPad models to ever use a custom Apple designed graphics chip. Specifically, it's expected Apple will announce new iPad Pro models and refresh its Mac lineup.

Trump Considers Executive Order to 'HALT ENTRY' for 'Migrant Caravan — CARAVAN CRISIS
U.S. officials said military personnel wouldn't be engaged in a law-enforcement role, but focus on infrastructure and logistics. But when pressed on how the United States would stop the Central Americans, Nielsen offered little in the way of specifics.

All in all, Apple new strategy of upgrading gadgets in all of its product categories is a departure from the company's old ways. Well, maybe not, after all - though we think the new MacBook Air will keep the relatively affordable price, as that's one of the reasons it keeps selling. As per rumors, the new MacBook will be priced from anywhere between $999 to $1,200. Its iMac lineup was also last updated nearly 1.5 years ago. The obvious candidates are the Mac Mini and the iMac, which are both rumored to receive refreshes this year. After all, the Mac mini was extremely popular as an HTPC due to its compact size.

Similar to the MacBook Air, Apple's pint-sized Mac Mini desktop computer hasn't been updated for years. 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. Nonetheless, this should also be good enough for most users as the Mac mini in its current iteration is awfully outdated and of no use. Any upgrade should include 8th-generation Intel processors.

Apple first revealed its AirPower charger a year ago when the company showed off the iPhone X's wireless charging feature. However, post the event, the company removed all references of the wireless charger from its website. It could see some stage time at the event, and possibly still meet Apple's promised delivery of 2018.

I've frequently contended Apple's Bluetooth-powered wireless AirPods are one of the best products the company has released in recent memory.

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.
