New iPad Pro, Apple Pencil 2, new Macs:It’s hard to remain unphased with Apple’s traditinioally unpredictable event announcements.Merely a month or so after the big September event that gave us three new iPhones and a new Apple Watch, Apple yesterday announced that it will indeed be hosting another event on October 30 in Brooklyn, New York.
As usual, Apple is mum’s the word on what’s to be expected from the event, but we need little to no urging to put on our thinking caps and come up with a list of expectations of the event.
New hardware is most certainly a given, and Apple actually very vaguely and creatively hints at what will be announced. Ready to join us and explore what that is?
Apple Pencil 2
Judging from the invitational teasers, which are depicting the Apple logo imagined in various artsy setups. It is then pretty logical to assume that Apple’s most creative gadget so far, the Apple Pencil, could be getting a serious update. The gadget hasn’t been improved since its inception, and while it’s a perfectly capable tool that would unlock your creativity, Apple is likely to have come up with an even more awesome update to the gadget.
You can see vibrant swaths of color, brush splatters, and beveled cutouts in n many of the invitational teasers, which is definitely hinting at a more capable Apple Pencil coming along October 30. This will be just in time for the highly-anticipated and long-awaited arrival of Adobe Photoshop’s arrival on the iPad. That’s right – the posterchild graphics editor is coming to iOS and the iPad Pro lineup in particular, which would definitely call for a more capable digital stylus. A match made in heaven, especially for designers and editors on the go.
Apple iPad Pro
Of course, it’s been nearly an year and a half since we were last treated to a new iPad Pro. Back in June 2017, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro got introduced, and Apple has been pretty mum on its tablet family, which is already seemingly partaking in a one-horse race on yet another market that Apple is domineering.
Although MacBooks and Macs are not generally in our scope of coverage, supposedly Apple’s computers will be a big part of the October 30 event. Of course, that’s what the rumor mill said, so it should be correct, right? In all seriousness, certain Mac product lineups have been neglected for a while now, urging users to speculate that October 30, 2018, will be the day Apple will finally pays some much-needed attention to its neglected Macs, with the iMac being first in line.
A man can dream, okay? It’s been more than a year since Apple announced its wireless charging mat, and we haven’t heard anything official about it ever since. It would make sense that an update about the accessory would have been made last month seeing how it’s meant to charge both the iPhones and the Apple Watch, but who knows, we might hopefully be given an update about AirPower’s status.
