The final Apple product launch of the year is only hours away. Today the company is expected to give the iPad Pro a major facelift while also announcing upgrades to the MacBook and Mac devices. Apple fans and analysts will also be eagerly awaiting some other expected products that didn’t drop during September’s keynote, for example the much rumored AirPower.
A steady drip of leaks have already painted a clear picture the new iPad Pros. They’ll likely do away with the home button for Face ID scanners and come with reduced bezels, no headphone jack, and the ability to output 4K HDR content. MacBooks could get cheaper and long-neglected Macs might finally get internal spec upgrades to compete against rival desktop systems.
We’ll have to wait until October 30 at 10 a.m. Eastern to be sure. The event is scheduled to take place at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City. Those interested will be able to tune into the tech pageantry live.

Apple October Event: How Do I Stream It?
Apple has increasingly made it easier to follow alone with its events remotely. Anyone can tune into its website, and if you’re afraid of missing out you can add a calendar event to remind you to tune in right before it kicks off. The company’s event page suggests that to view the stream on the following devices and browsers for “the best experience.” To no surprise, most of them are Apple products.
- iPhones, iPads, or iPod touches running Safari on iOS 10 or later
- Macs running macOS Sierra 10.12 or later.
- PCs using Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge.
- Apple TV 2nd generation or later with the latest Apple TV software or tvOS.

Apple will likely upload a recording of the event to its site afterwards. Inverse will be covering everything that goes down Tuesday, so stay tuned to find out what the company has in store ahead of the holidays.
