Apple confirms iPad and Macbook event will happen on October 30

More in the making

However, we are also expecting the launch of new refreshed MacBook Pros, the new AirPower wireless charger which Apple had launched a year ago.

Apple started going gaga about bezel less smartphone design starting 2017 and this year has been much more pronounced as the company didn't release any new phones with bezels unlike last year's iPhone 8.

The cryptic iPad code was uncovered in iOS 12.1 - the forthcoming upgrade to iOS 12, which was rolled out to Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch owners worldwide on Monday. The Air hasn't had a notable update in years, receiving just minor processor updates.

Japanese technology news website Macotakara spoke to a range of accessory makers at the Global Sources Mobile Electronics trade show in Hong Kong, and was told the iPad Pro 2018 would have a USB-C port rather than a Lightning port.

93% children breathe toxic air globally
A WHO assessment released earlier this year found that 14 out of the 20 most polluted cities in the world are in India. It said that the new clean air act is needed to diminish air concentration levels to as low and as soon as possible.

Tech experts also speculate another possibility could be a re-designed version of the MacBook Air laptop. 12-inch MacBooks are reportedly in the works and there are murmurs of the company developing low-priced notebooks for the masses with a Retina display.

Those looking for a Mac desktop should wait. Also, there might be news on new AirPods as well. It's possible the case makes an appearance as well. About the location, the October launch will take place at the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Howard Gilman Opera House. It seems the logo changes every time you refresh the event page. While the device may see some discounts as Black Friday approaches, it's in a pretty safe territory as far as rumors go. Apple introduced the A12 Bionic chipset with the iPhone XS and XS Max.

For Australians, we'll learn about it all in the early hours of Wednesday October 31, so we'll have more info about that as the launch gets closer and it all happens!

New iPads could finally pave the way for Apple to provide some release details about AirPower, amid speculation that the wireless charger for iPhones and Apple Watches may have been scrapped.
