New iPad Pro, Macs, and more: The rumors ahead of Apple's Oct. 30 event

It's thought Apple will push the display to the very sides of the tablet and ditch the famous home button with users unlocking the device using Face ID.

The iMac, MacBook and MacBook Pro without Touch Bar are now sold with seventh-generation Intel Core chips, and are anticipated to see updates to the newer eighth-generation components at some point in the near future. The technology giant, which last month unveiled updated iPhones and smartwatches, is scheduled on Tuesday to take over the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City, where it is expected to show off new members in its iPad and Mac product lines. Face ID will enable Animojis (and the personalized variety known as Memojis) on iPads for the first time. A new Apple Pencil, with new pairing features and ease of switching between devices, makes sense for Apple to reveal with the new tablets.

After refreshing the MacBook Pros earlier this year, it looks as though Apple is going to turn its attention to the rest of its laptops at the October 30 event.

Facial recognition has been a big hit since it arrived on the iPhone and has allowed Apple to make full use of the space on the front of their smartphone.

Now, a new and updated icon has been unearthed in the latest version of the iOS 12 developer beta - and it further reinforces that previous rumor, once again showing a tablet symbol with slim bezels and no Home button, as reported by 9to5Mac. But according to Ming-Chi Kuo, next week might see the arrival of the iPad Mini 5, featuring an upgraded processor, but a lower cost LCD panel used for the display which could help reduce its price tag.

Islamic Jihad group announces Gaza ceasefire with Israel
Sirens were heard in Israeli settlements near the Gaza-Israel buffer zone because of the rockets fired from Gaza. According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, 213 Gazans have been killed by Israeli forces during the riots.

A custom Apple graphics chip, the first time this would be included in an iPad.

The iPad Pro update comes at an important time for the device, which hasn't been refreshed since mid-2017.

Here's what the company is preparing for the Mac line, according to people familiar with the company's plans.

The Mac Mini rises from the dead? Some or all of these products could debut at Tuesday's event. The new MacBook Air will reportedly come with the same 13-inch screen size as the current Air, but the screen resolution is where will be the difference. The latter would be a big upgrade over the existing Mac mini, which has languished without an update since 2014.

Other possible announcements include iMac refreshes and more information about the upcoming Mac Pro.
