The company will offer the event livestream on the Apple website, as well as through the Apple TV app. While the iPhone won over consumers, and the Watch is on a growing number of wrists, Apple is pushing content creation for its other major devices. They asked not to be identified discussing unannounced products. Today, we've got the final few words on the 2018 iPad Pro refresh. The iPad Pro models, which have larger screens, better cameras and faster processors, are more expensive, which has sustained revenue growth.
The USB-C port would allow for faster charging and output of up to 4K when the iPad is connected to another monitor.
The new iPas Pro is also reportedly dropping Apple's Lightning charging format in favour of the USB-C system already used in the Apple MacBook and in most new Android smartphones. It depicts an iPhone X-like design, with somewhat rounded corners, no home button, relatively small bezels, and buttons on the side as well as at the top.
It's unclear if Face ID will only work in portrait or landscape mode, or if Apple has figured out a way for it to identify faces in either orientation. The new iPads will also come with a Face ID scanner.
The iPad Pro features a battery life of around 10-hours which is certainly enough to last most long-haul flights. The sides of the tablet appear to the completely flat like the sides of an iPhone 5 with no noticeable tapering. However, news for the tablets' design slowed down right up to the start of this month, when a quick succession of leaks provided important details. Well, maybe not, after all - though we think the new MacBook Air will keep the relatively affordable price, as that's one of the reasons it keeps selling.
For the Mac, Apple is planning its first wide-ranging upgrades since June 2017. This time around, according to the most credible rumors, the Cupertino crew is ready to show off what could be music to your ears: new Macs and iPads. Apple's desktop computers have always been a reliable seller, and in recent years the company has made efforts to improve their performance for professional photographers, designers, and other high-end users.
Here's how you can follow the event as it happens on Tuesday. A replacement for the MacBook Air - finally. It will have a higher-resolution 13-inch screen, as well as slimmer bezels around the display. This will be the first update to Mac Mini since 2014.
