Apple gears up for new Macs and iPad Pros on October 30

Apple pens date for expected Mac updates

Just slightly over a month since Apple had introduced the new iPhone trio, the Cupertino company will be having another special event in less than two weeks' time. Reports suggest the new iPad will sport thinner bezels (mostly reduced top and bottom bezels), support Face ID in both portrait and landscape, and ditch the Lightning port for USB-C (yes, really).

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

Woman dumps toddler at stranger's door - then runs away
Authorities say deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office responded to a home in Spring, Texas Wednesday evening. It is not clear if the woman has been taken into custody or if police are still trying to find her.

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.

Apart from new iPad Pro models and a new Pencil, Apple could update its MacBook line with a new 12-inch MacBook.

Mega Millions jackpot soars to $900 million, second-highest
More than 55,000 winning tickets are outstanding, with unclaimed prizes ranging from $2 to $50,000, according to the statement. The chance of matching all six numbers for the Mega Millions and taking home the grand prize is one in 302.5 million.

Apple's next big hardware event will take place at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House in NY on October 30.

If you are interested in Apple hardware, the iPhone XR has become available to pre-order today. However other rumours contradict this, suggesting 3.5mm headphone jacks will be dropped in favour of lightning ports. A redesign is definitely due and the new MacBook Air might be announced with a higher resolution Retina display and Touch ID built-in. Sure, it would need a new dongle or cable, but since Apple loves to sell dongles and cables, I don't see what the problem is. Given the focus of the venue at which the event is being held, music could point towards refreshed AirPods, although admittedly that could be too far of a stretch. Do keep your fingers crossed as Apple may surprise us.
