New Macs might be coming next week based on Apple EEC filing

New iPad Pro, Macs, and more: The rumors ahead of Apple's Oct. 30 event What's Going To Happen At Apple's iPad And MacBook Event Next Week?

Apple is widely-tipped to overhaul the iPad Pro range with an iPhone X-style redesign, complete with an edge-to-edge screen that follows the curve of the chassis, as well as facial recognition via Face ID. On Tuesday, the Cupertino, California-based technology giant will take the stage in Brooklyn, New York, to unveil new Mac computers and iPad tablets. Those features are particularly useful for people who create graphics, build websites, edit movies, write music, and in the case of Macs, develop their own software. We're expecting new iPad Pro models and maybe new Macs-but you never know what surprises might be in store.

Rumours have it that the larger version of the iPad Pro will retain its 12.9-inch screen size, while the smaller model from 2017 may once again get a minor screen size bump from 10.5-inch up to 11. According to Kuo, the new iPad Pro models will have slim bezels, with displays that stretch almost edge to edge, similar to new iPhone models like the iPhone XS. The bezels around the display are expected to remain big enough to hide the Face ID sensors, meaning there won't be a notch on the iPad Pro display.

Specifically, it's expected Apple will announce new iPad Pro models and refresh its Mac lineup.

Further, Face ID is tipped to work in any orientation, regardless of whether the 2018 iPad Pro is held in portrait or landscape mode. Consomac also notes that the A1932 model is some sort of new MacBook, but this device was spotted in the database in July running macOS 10.13. The new Apple Pencil might also use the W1 wireless chip for easier pairing, and possibly even feature magnetic connectivity so that it can be attached and stored on the side of the new iPad Pros.

Of course, this email may be a red herring and Apple may just ship out a normal MacBook Air come the end of next week, but as they say, there's no smoke without fire. It will also be the first time Apple has changed the charging port on iOS devices since 2012.

The iPad Pro update comes at an important time for the device, which hasn't been refreshed since mid-2017.

Apple laptop users have been asking for a new MacBook Air for years.

It nearly seems like Apple has forgotten about the iPad Mini, or is happy to let the product die as it pushes the iPad towards being a more powerful computer replacement.

Here's what the company is preparing for the Mac line, according to people familiar with the company's plans.

According to a Bloomberg report from August, which was supported by recent predictions from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will also be soon revealing a replacement for the MacBook Air which is the only computer in its lineup that doesn't sport a high-res Retina display.

Apple is holding a major keynote in NY on Tuesday and rumours suggest a new cheaper laptop could be top of the agenda. According to the Bloomberg report, the new Mac Mini will get new processors and features for professional users.
