Apple in late October, will present its latest iPad and Mac

Earlier today, Apple sent out invitations for yet another media event where the company is expected to introduce a slew of new hardware, including new iPads and more.

The official Apple website dedicated to events with the details of the incoming presentation has also been updated. It's also worth mentioning that Apple's next-gen iPad Pro models will reportedly ship without a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.

Adobe happens to have just announced full-fledged Photoshop for the iPad, so the timing seems ripe.

Thinking of buying an iPad Pro before November? They will be frameless, as the iPhone X will lose home button and fingerprint scanner Touch ID, but will get a Face ID.

Also to be launched will be an entry-level Mac meant to be the successor to the MacBook Air, plus a professional-grade Mac mini, both of which were also speculated upon during the iPhone launch on September 12.

Of course, it's been almost an year and a half since we were last treated to a new iPad Pro.

Thinking of getting an iPad as a computer replacement?

Alas, information pertaining to the MacBook Air is still limited.

Reports have said that Apple plans to unveil an 11-inch iPad Pro-presumably taking the place of the existing 10.5-inch iPad Pro-alongside an upgraded 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

Tech experts also speculate another possibility could be a re-designed version of the MacBook Air laptop. Apple Pencils, which are an integral part of the iPad pro experience, could also see some major updating.

Should I buy? With little chatter on another update to the MacBook Pro, professionals looking at that machine should be OK pulling the trigger. 12-inch MacBooks are reportedly in the works and there are murmurs of the company developing low-priced notebooks for the masses with a Retina display.

This event will bring you joy if you are a huge fan of Mac's. It's possible the case makes an appearance as well. However, one thing is different this year, unlike previous years' the company will not hold the event in San Francisco or even the newly constructed Steve Jobs theater but rather in New York (Howard Gilman Opera House). There are multiple variations of the apple logo as shown above and it changes when you reload the events page. There are no officially licensed third-party Apple Watch chargers.

Like the Apple Watch, not much more is expected as far as new iPhones go.

Apple released the the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max last month.
