Earlier in the year, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said via an investor note that Apple is planning to introduce spec bumps for the MacBook Pro, iMac, and believe it or not, the Mac Mini later this year.

Even though Apple's newest iPhones all come with proprietary Lightning ports, as well as Lightning to USB-A cables in their standard retail box, the company is (slowly) getting closer to universal USB Type-C technology adoption.

It is, however, the second Apple product launch outside of California this year. And the new tablets will also have the Smart Connector in a new spot, this time on the back of the device rather than the side. This time around, the event is slated to take place on October 30 at the Howard Gilman Opera House in NY.

An afternoon recap of the day's most important business news, delivered weekdays.

Trump praises Republican congressman for body slamming journalist
Trump added that he predicted the assault would actually help Gianforte's election bid previous year , according to The Hill . A letter sent by Mr Gianforte to Mr Jacobs offered a "sincere apology". "Never", Trump said at a campaign rally in Montana.


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

Some experts are predicting the new iPad Pro will feature an all-screen display which will cover nearly the entire front of the device. Given the focus of the venue at which the event is being held, music could point towards refreshed AirPods, although admittedly that could be too far of a stretch.

Potentially, a new Mac Mini desktop that's oriented towards professional usage.

Rumours have been rife for months that Apple is planning to refresh its iPad and Apple Pencil lineup with new Pro machines expected to be unveiled. The iPhone XR, a lower-cost iPhone with a almost all-screen front, goes on sale october 26.
