Leak Confirms New Cheap MacBook, Mac Mini, and iMacs for October 30

Leak Confirms New Cheap MacBook, Mac Mini, and iMacs for October 30

While the iPad and accompanying Apple Pencil shipped, the MacBook Air did not, with an email from Apple saying that the MacBook Air would instead ship on October 30th. We'll be liveblogging the event right here, so come back for the latest news when the event begins.

Apple's not so unexpected event on October 30th has sent some Android OEM scrambling to adjust their dates or even cancel. The bezels will be slimmer, and the LCD screen on each new iPad Pro will include an edge-to-edge design.

With smaller bezels, Apple is ditching its iconic home button with Touch ID, and replacing the technology with its facial recognition platform, Face ID. It's very possible there will be more than one model of this new iPad Pro, varying either in size or storage capacity (or both).

Also: I tried to write this article on an iPad Pro.

Rumours are rife that Apple will bring USB-C charging to the Pro range which could be a good decision.

The oversized iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil stylus helped cement the iPad as a genuine productivity tool-why else would Adobe finally port the full version of Photoshop to iOS? The Apple event this week follows the launch of its flagship devices iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS, besides the iPhone XR, in September.

As for internals, the 2018 iPad Pro lineup will feature a beefed-up version of Apple's already powerful A12 Bionic chip found inside its 2018 iPhone lineup.

Apple reveals new iPad Pro

The USB-C port would allow for faster charging and output of up to 4K when the iPad is connected to another monitor.

One other issue with the current iPad is the time it takes to charge.

Apple's launch event for the 2018 iPad Pro refresh is just two days away. Rumors claim that this new MacBook lineup will replace the aging MacBook Air lineup. The low-priced replacement, which may or may not keep the "Air" designation (it could also be a cheaper addition to the 30cm MacBook line) will include a screen that's roughly 33cm in size, but with thinner bezels around the display to reduce the laptop's overall footprint.

Less certain have been rumors of new Macs, but some seemingly concrete evidence has emerged this week. But other changes are coming to Apple's high-end tablets. Furthermore, the three listed models are likely to be the new Mac Mini and iMac machines. Its iMac lineup was also last updated nearly 1.5 years ago. It is expected that the fresh listing points at the anticipated Mac Mini and iMac upgrades. After all, the Mac mini was extremely popular as an HTPC due to its compact size. 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. The company will offer the event livestream on the Apple website, as well as through the Apple TV app. It could see some stage time at the event, and possibly still meet Apple's promised delivery of 2018.

There were rumors of Apple launching the AirPods 2 this year. However, given the lack of any concrete leaks confirming their existence, it does seem unlikely that we will see AirPods 2 being unveiled next week.

As per the event invite, Apple has said "There's more in the making". But Bloomberg believes that the low-priced, barebones computer, which ships without a screen, keyboard, or mouse, is on deck to get a "pro" upgrade like the iMac did. Drop a comment and let us know!
