Apple Announces "There's more in the making" October Event
For weeks, there’s been an ongoing rumor that Apple will be hosting an event this month. Turns out, that rumor proved to be true.
The Press Invite
Apple has hosted October events in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2016, so it wasn’t surprising that tech enthusiasts were expecting an October event this year – despite the fact that there wasn’t any in 2015 and 2017. Here’s the press invite to the “There’s more in the making” event scheduled for 30 October 2018 – 10:00 am EDT at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House.

But what’s really interesting is that Macrumors may have already known about the date beforehand. You see, although tech enthusiasts were expecting for Apple to hold an event this month, no one could tell when exactly. It was speculated to be either on the 3rd or 4th week of the month.
However, a recent report by Macrumors said, “the most likely date for an October event at this point is Tuesday, October 30”. Was this just a lucky guess?
What Devices Can We Expect?
One of the highly anticipated devices to be present at the upcoming event is the iPad Pro 3 (aka iPad Pro 2018). It was initially expected to be launched last June because its predecessor was launched in June of 2017.
Another highly anticipated device is the Mac mini 2018. However, there have also been some reports about a “pro” variant which is dubbed as the “Mac mini Pro”.
Now what’s confusing about this is that we’re not sure if the Mac mini Pro is the high-end model or a separate model. You see, the currently available model which was launched in 2014 came with three price tags – $499, $699 and $999.
The Cupertino tech company is also expected to update its iMac models. Well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that there will be a significant display performance upgrade and a processor refresh.
Lastly, is an all-new MacBook or MacBook Air. For this device, it has been shrouded with so many rumors that it has become so confusing already. If you’re interested, check out our article about it where we tried to simplify its rumored specs and features.
