Apple today sent invitations for an October 30 event that will likely include the launch of new iPads and Macs. The event will be held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House.

The world's most valuable company sent out a small number of invites to select media and industry types with the tagline "There's more in the making".

Some have also suggested there may be a new iteration of the Apple Pencil. The new Mac Mini Pro and a new Macbook seem plausible and the MacBook Air needs an update as its years behind.

Last month, Apple revealed new iPhones and Apple Watches, so analysts and rumors have pointed to a launch event focusing on new iPad Pro models and potentially new Mac computers.

The new iPad Pro most probably will keep the 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch screen sizes as the predecessor, but everything else will undergo changes.

On its website, Apple said the event will be live streamed.

It is still uncertain if the iPads are the only products Apple will unveil.

Based on what you've heard and seen of the rumored 2018 iPad Pro lineup so far, are you planning on upgrading when Apple launches them?

Faster processor, better camera and the addition of Face ID are also expected, with this the first iPad to lose the famous home button. Meanwhile, a new Apple Watch charging option has been discreetly added to Cupertino's official U.S. e-store, including, you guessed it, USB-C compatibility.
