If you thought Apple was done with announcements following its iPhone Xs ones last month, but the Cupertino-based company has another Apple Event on the cards for 30th October.

There's also talk that the long-delayed Apple charging pad that can wirelessly charge iPhones, the Apple Watch and a new set of Apple AirPods with a new wireless charging case will finally arrive too. We have attached some of the invites with different Apple logo designs above for you to take a look at.

The event is expected to focus on new iPad Pro and Mac models.

The company's official page has vibrant purple and orange painted Apple insignia with bubbles and everytime the page is refreshed, it changes to a new design, giving away the hint that it has a new iPad series. The iPad is going to be rumored to be released in two sizes that are of a 12.9 inch and a smaller with the 11-inch version.


MacBook Air hasn't been updated regarding hardware for years and, although it is still one of the Apple's cheapest Mac notebook, it has been outperformed by its competitors and by new formats such as 2-in-1 and convertible tablets.

There are a fair amount of rumors pointing to a USB-C iPad Pro, although the move would be a break from tradition for Apple, which prefers to use its proprietary charger on its iOS phones and tablets. There have been plenty of reports in the past to make us believe that Apple will be announcing a new iPad Pro model that is said to come with slimmer bezels and Face ID.

Apple Events requires an Apple TV, 2nd or 3rd generation, with software 6.2 or later, or an Apple TV, 4th or 5th generation. Every new iPhone model introduced in 2018 has done away with the home button, including the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR that will be released on Friday. The 12-inch MacBook, iMac and the Mac Mini are also due to be upgraded with the latest processors. We don't think Apple will jump to OLED displays for reasons of cost and panel supply.
