The iPhone maker revealed on Thursday that it will host a major event on October 30 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Howard Gilman Opera House.
We'll have to wait and see what Apple has in store but it may not be the only new product revealed at the event.
While rumours regarding Apple's upcoming iPad Pro revision nixing the traditional Lightning port in favour of USB-C have been circulating for some time now, a new report from Japanese publication Mac Otakara once again backs up this claim. Apart from the iPhone, Apple has already refreshed its new MacBook Pro lineup with the latest 8th gen Intel Core processors. Maybe we'll also see some new Mac Minis.
The 10.5-inch iPad Pro might be retired and replaced with an 11-inch version, while the 12.9-inch will still remain - both will have a smaller footprint of course thanks to the slimmer bezels.
The event will be the company's second major hardware event this autumn, following the launch the new iPhone XS models at its main headquarters in California in September.
Recently, notable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that this would be the case.
On paper, it sounds kind of surprising, but the reports claiming that Apple will include a USB-C port instead of its proprietary Lightning are certainly racking up. Rumors tip new iPads that will add Face ID and ditch the Home button, like the iPhone XS and XR.
A successor to the MacBook Air is expected to debut at this NY event.
