Need a new iPad? Apple to hold product event in New York

19 October 2018

Apple has just sent out press invites for a special event in NY on October 30. The event will be held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House.

"There's more in the making", the invite reads. The best part about the new USB-C magnetic charger for the Apple Watch is that it comes at the same $29 price tag. Unlike the iPhone X, though, the new iPad Pro units aren't expected to boast a notch, but they will reportedly feature Apple's Face ID technology, facilitated by the TrueDepth camera system. Further, Kuo said that the port will open up new functionality, including the ability to connect the iPad Pro to a 4K monitor, a first for Apple's iPad line.

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.

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.

When Apple launched the iPad in 2010, it quickly became one of the company's most important products.

This new cable is available for pick up as early as October 29, 2018, at Apple Stores, while delivers by October 24 at the fastest shipping speeds. Meanwhile, a new Apple Watch charging option has been discreetly added to Cupertino's official United States e-store, including, you guessed it, USB-C compatibility. However, iPad sales have slowed in recent years in favor of laptops and other larger screen devices. This image looks like Simpsons with Marge at the bottom, but expect more artistic flair from the event.
