Apple debuted new iPhones and Apple Watches last month, but while we were originally expecting Mac and iPad hardware to be refreshed, those predictions ultimately didn’t materialize. It’s now October, and for many of us, that means fall weather and spooky celebrations. But this year, it could mean new Apple products, too!
To be clear, Apple could debut new Mac and iPad Pro devices via press release (like it did for the 2018 MacBook Pro lineup). But that seems unlikely due-to how significant of an upgrade that new iPad Pro models are expected to receive, as well as rumors pointing to brand new Mac products — like an entry-level 13-inch MacBook and a long-awaited Mac mini refresh.
What Products Should We Expect?
Because of that, analysts have predicted that the 10.5-inch iPad Pro will become an 11-inch iPad Pro, while the 12.9-inch iPad Pro will retain the same display size but come in a slightly smaller form factor.
While rumors are a as far as price points, the device is largely expected to be an entry-level Mac notebook that could occupy the MacBook Air’s price tier.
Despite significant engineering issues, it’s also perfectly possible that Apple could debut its long-awaited and second-generation AirPods with a new Qi-based case.
