AirPower charger, new Mac Pro, a budget iPhone or a new tech toy to play with, Apple can surprise you at any given day. There's also a new Magnetic Connector to replace the current Smart Connector.

A month and a half after its last major event, Apple is throwing a big party in Brooklyn, New York on October 30.

Apple has recently launched the new iPhones for 2018 but as expected, there was something more left to be unveiled. They will be frameless, as the iPhone X will lose home button and fingerprint scanner Touch ID, but will get a Face ID.

Some have also suggested there may be a new iteration of the Apple Pencil. At the hardware level, we will find the new incredibly powerful A12X processor already in its version for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. It's also worth mentioning that Apple's next-gen iPad Pro models will reportedly ship without a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.

"What's interesting is that the iPad Pro is said to be coming with a USB-C port instead of a traditional lightning port, and it could come in either 10.5" and 12.9" sizes.

The synagogue door was unlocked on the Sabbath "because people are coming for services, and the bell would be ringing constantly". A community vigil was held Sunday afternoon for those killed and injured at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh .

The technology blog identified a device icon last month that looked remarkably different from previous illustrations included in Apple's mobile operating systems.

According to reports by 9to5Mac two versions of the iPad Pro could be introduced such as a new 11-inch size and a redesigned 12.9-inch size. Along with its long-awaited refresh of its MacBook Air.

As usual, the tagline for the event is as inviting as it is ambiguous: "there's more in the making". The gadget hasn't been improved since its inception, and while it's a perfectly capable tool that would unlock your creativity, Apple is likely to have come up with an even more awesome update to the gadget. If none is made, it may be best to wait a bit more to see what bombshell awaits curious Apple loyalists.

Apple Events requires an Apple TV, 2nd or 3rd generation, with software 6.2 or later, or an Apple TV, 4th or 5th generation. The event took place at the Steve Jobs Theater (named after Apple's legendary founder) at the company's new campus in Cupertino, California.
