New iPad Pro, Macs, and more: The rumors ahead of Apple's Oct. 30 event

This coming Tuesday, Apple will hold a special media event in Brooklyn where the company is expected to unveil a range of new hardware, including a pair of new iPad Pro models in 11-inch and 12.9-inch form factors.

Apple will take the first step in ditching its long-established Lightning connector for the increasingly-popular USB-C standard this week when it pulls back the covers on a new iPad Pro. The latter is expected to be unwrapped on Tuesday.

The star of tomorrow's Apple event will definitely be the new iPads. Nothing new compared to what was reported on before, except this one is detailed enough to also show the volume and power buttons.

Incidentally, there are rumblings that Face ID on Apple's new iPad will work in both portrait and landscape orientations, a smart design choice given how frequently the iPad is used in landscape. Both will be the first iPad models to have a "bezel-less" screen that comes with a symmetrical edge to edge design with rounded corners.

Recently leaked iOS 12.1 beta, Apple has included a new bezel-less iPad icon hinting that the upcoming Pro tablet series will indeed embrace the edge-to-edge display feature of the iPhone X series and also boast Face ID security feature. Alternatively, Apple could do away with the Air model entirely, and this new low-priced model could just be an entry-level evolution that's part of the general non-Pro MacBook line. We assumed that Apple had forgotten about it (the device hasn't seen an update since 2015), but according to reliable analyst sources, there is indeed a refresh planned for the 7.9-inch slate. While the tablet market is contracting overall, the iPad has been slowly regaining momentum thanks to new software and lower-priced models, but also because competitors like Amazon.com and Samsung Electronics haven't wowed the market lately.

Creating on Apple products, of course.

This also means there won't any fingerprint sensor at the base, as well and 2018 will mark the end of the revolutionary Touch ID, which made its debut with iPhone 5S will no longer feature in any of Apple products. A similar effect occurred with the iPhone X glyph found previous year, ' the site wrote. It is expected that the fresh listing points at the anticipated Mac Mini and iMac upgrades. The new Mac Mini will likely receive updates to its processor, storage, ports, and maybe even the housing.
