New iPad Pro 'buttonless' design hinted at in latest iOS 12 beta

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

As for other iPad Pro design changes worth mentioning, the new tablets will reportedly not ship with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Here's a recap of what Apple is anticipated to announce in Brooklyn.

The screen size change, however, doesn't come at the cost of a larger device overall.

It's thought Apple will push the display to the very sides of the tablet and ditch the famous home button with users unlocking the device using Face ID.

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.

After refreshing the MacBook Pros earlier this year, it looks as though Apple is going to turn its attention to the rest of its laptops at the October 30 event. Under the hood, it is said to be running on a more powerful Apple A12X octa-core chip that's based on a 7nm process. While all these are mere speculations for now, the latest piece of information confirming the new iPad design comes directly from Apple as a part of the latest iOS 12 update. The firm confirmed the event details in one of their Apple Events webpage. The first render leak for the upcoming tablets indicated a new position for their smart connector and displayed sharper corners than the ones present on all current variants of the iPad. It's very possible there will be more than one model of this new iPad Pro, varying either in size or storage capacity (or both). Since it's USB-C, there's a chance that it could also support fast charging via a compatible USB-C PD power adapter.

And what about the iPad Mini?

Much attention will be on the battery of the new MacBook Air, with previous models varying between five hours and ten hours.

The iPad Pro will also be thinner than the older generations at 5.86mm.

The Mac Mini rises from the dead? In some ways it's weird that Apple hasn't thought to upgrade it in so long, but there's not much that needs changing in the way of the design - it's the internals that are going to get a bump if an upgrade is coming. If Apple had somehow succeeded in working out all the kinks, AirPower is a product that would benefit the iPhone the most, which means last month's big iPhone event might have been the best time for the company to announce its availability-not a month later alongside iPads and MacBooks. The latter would be a big upgrade over the existing Mac mini, which has languished without an update since 2014.

Apple's wireless earbuds, AirPods, have been included in rumors, with the anticipation of an updated feature set that includes Siri integration and a wireless charging case.
