Apple’s press event, during which the company is set to announce its next gen iPads and Macs, will take place in Brooklyn, New York on Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. EST. Let’s take a look at what we might expect from Apple’s conference, according to recent leaks and reports.
The next gen iPad Pro: one or more?
At least one new model of the next iPad Pro is set to be unveiled by Apple during the event on Tuesday. Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-sourced analyst at TF International Securities, predicts that the American company will replace its old 10.5-inch model of iPad Pro with a new one that has an 11-inch screen. Moreover, since some reports mention that Apple could be working on multiple iPad Pros, a new 12.9-inch version is also a possibility.
It is expected that the Face ID feature will be introduced on all upcoming iPads, allowing us to unlock our device by simply looking at it. This also means that the home button will be removed, which in turn will significantly increase the size of iPad’s display.
MacBook might finally get a high-resolution screen
According to Kuo, Apple might want to replace its current MacBook Air with a new model that will be cheaper. Although the 13-inch MacBook has received its new processors not so long ago, its design and screen should definitely be upgraded. For example, its current low-resolution screen could be replaced with the sharper Retina screen.
A new professional version of Mac Mini
Bloomberg expects that Apple will also announce a new version of Mac Mini for pro users. This is surely a good time for some changes, as this small desktop computer has not been updated in over four years. Apparently, the Pro model of the Mac Mini will feature “new storage and processor options”. This could mean that this device might get one of the latest Intel processors and a faster, solid-state storage.
