Apple to unveil iPad, MacBook laptop overhauls

Other than the iPhone XR hype these days, Apple has announced a new USB-C charger for the Apple Watch. Reports add that the new iPad Pro models, in 11- and 12.9-inch sizes, will switch away from Apple's Lightning connector to USB Type-C.

Japanese blog Mac Otakara is now getting in on the action.

We'll have to wait and see what Apple has in store but it may not be the only new product revealed at the event.

The site also says that the companies were showing off a photo of the 2018 iPad Pro dimensions that was first shared on Slashleaks last week. It's possible Apple might use the event to introduce the long-expected AirPower charging mat and new Mac hardware too.

Although this time, Apple is headed to the Brooklyn Academy of Music in NY for its next product unveilings. There won't be a Home button to press, either, but Face ID should support landscape orientation to make unlocking the new tablet even easier. You can read a round-up of all the 2018 iPad Pro rumours and leaks here. We'll keep you posted on these details as we learn them, but will be bringing you all the latest from the event on the day.

Apple's invitations have only just gone out, and while the invitations do continue the run of being cryptic, this time around, the company saw fit to send different invitations out to different news outlets. It is still uncertain if the iPads are the only products Apple will unveil. These include a refreshed iMac, upgraded Mac Mini and probably cheaper MacBook laptops.
