How to watch Apple's October 2018 iPad launch

Apple’s second hardware event on Tuesday October 30 is going to be huge

Apple’s second hardware event on Tuesday October 30 is going to be huge

As usual, Apple is mum's the word on what's to be expected from the event, but we need little to no urging to put on our thinking caps and come up with a list of expectations of the event.

Apple has officially confirmed the event scheduled for this fall, in addition to the presentation of the new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR and Apple Watch Series 4. Hence, we also expect Apple Pencil 2 to show up at the event. Apart from this, there are rumours that Apple will be ditching the Lightning connector in favour of a USB Type-C port, however, we don't know for sure if it will make an appearance with this year's model or not.

Apple is expected to unveil a new line of iPad Pro 2018 series in Brooklyn later this month. It seems the logo changes every time you refresh the event page.

When Apple launched the iPad in 2010, it quickly became one of the company's most important products.

There's plenty of speculation that the new tablets Apple could reveal will follow the design of the iPhone by dropping the Home button and the bezels and relying completely on FaceID.

Aside from their age, it's crucial Apple update these products as they remain the cheapest gateways to macOS. The company might finally redesign its popular but outdated $999 MacBook Air. The next iPad Pro is expected to continue using an LCD display screen unless Apple, for some reason, decides to upgrade them to OLED. Earlier in the year, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said via an investor note that Apple is planning to introduce spec bumps for the MacBook Pro, iMac, and believe it or not, the Mac Mini later this year. The bezels are thinner this time and overall, the device looks way slimmer than before.

Apple previously announced it was also working on a wireless charging case for AirPods to work with its long-delayed AirPower charging mat. As with the Apple Watch, it is likely that there will be plenty of deals and offers around iPhones as we get closer to the holidays, so, for that reason, it may be worth waiting.
