The invitation to the media features artistic and colourful Apple logo with a message-"There's more in the making"- and going by the unique presentation, many are of the opinion that the company will unveil the new line of the iPad Pro and also possibly Macbook series too. It will be more powerful than the A12 chip on the latest iPhone XS and it's also expected to come with 4GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage.

Tomorrow, Apple will host its second hardware event in as many months and gadget fans everywhere are getting excited about what's to come.

With smaller bezels, Apple is ditching its iconic home button with Touch ID, and replacing the technology with its facial recognition platform, Face ID. 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. But while that event is believed to center largely around new iPad Pro tablets, it will hardly be the only one. Apart from the tablet, Apple is expected to announce a newer Pencil stylus and it will still likely to be sold separately.

The iPad Pro (2018) in icon form. On October 30 at 10 a.m. (ET), the tech giant will take the stage at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. It's now unclear what will be changed in this new Apple Pencil iteration, though extended battery life and a more efficient charging method are likely upgrades. 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. The 13-inch screen size suggests a new version of the MacBook Air, which got a modest spec boost a year ago, to the then already-dated 5th Generation "Broadwell" family of mobile CPUs.

Creating on Apple products, of course.

An icon found by9to5Mac in a previous iOS 12 beta reveals the difference between the current iPad Pro design, and what the new iPad Pro's will look like - even if it's just an icon.

The first update to the Mac mini since 2014, adding new processors and features for professional users. If it happens, it'll be nice to see this increasingly industry-standard connection on another Apple product, given that the iPhones are still sticking with Lightning connectors.

This, combined with interest in larger smartphones and competing PCs, led Apple to report the fewest Mac sales since 2010 in its fiscal third quarter. It is expected that the fresh listing points at the anticipated Mac Mini and iMac upgrades. Its iMac lineup was also last updated nearly 1.5 years ago.

Integrated "Hey Siri" functionality is also rumoured to be coming to the AirPods 2.
