"There's more in the making," reads the invitation sent to the media, without specifying what would be introduced. But it is known that Apple is planning the biggest revamp to the iPad Pro since it first went on sale in 2015, as well as a lower-cost MacBook laptop and a new Mac mini desktop.
The new iPads are expected to bring some features with the latest iPhones - Face ID and a nearly all-screen designs. Apple is planning new iPad Pros in two screen sizes -- 11 inches and 12.9 inches -- that will both use facial recognition for unlocking, rather than a Home button with a fingerprint sensor. The new models are also expected to include faster processors and an Apple-designed graphics chip for the first time, but will lack OLED screens.
The company is also planning an entry-level Mac with a high-resolution screen to succeed the MacBook Air. The new Mac mini desktop will focus on professional users.
The Oct. 30 event will take place at the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Howard Gilman Opera House.
