As for the software announcements, most likely, tell us more about the new iOS 12.1, which adds the ability to adjust the bokeh effect in real time, activates the built-in SIM card and add support for group chats with FaceTime.

The 2018 iPad Pro line is expected to feature an iPhone X-like design, meaning no Home button, slimmer bezels, and a TrueDepth camera system for Face ID. They also tell where the Apple Special Event will be taking place: The Brooklyn Academy of Music in NY.

Apple could also announce a new Mac Mini, aimed at Power users and app developers. While it's true that Apple has a huge product catalog that continues to expand each year, the iPhone is still the company's most important and most popular product by a huge margin.

Apple is all set to host another hardware event on October 30 in which the Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to reveal new iPad Pro models along with new Macbooks and there could be a new Macbook Air as well.

Thinking of getting an iPad as a computer replacement?

Apple's MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops already sport USB-C connectors.

Alas, information pertaining to the MacBook Air is still limited. In addition to this, there will be a new USB-C port, which will replace the Lightning to allow video output up to 4K.

Another device which direly needs an update is the MacBook Mini, something that has not been refreshed since 2014.

There is also the possibility of seeing new MacBooks on October 30.

Some have also suggested there may be a new iteration of the Apple Pencil.

Should I buy? With little chatter on another update to the MacBook Pro, professionals looking at that machine should be OK pulling the trigger. 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. Introduced in 2016, the earbuds are fast approaching their second birthday, making them ripe for an update.

But 9to5Mac doesn't think any new earbuds are coming just yet. Also, there might be news on new AirPods as well.
