6 Signs Why There May Be An October Apple Event; MacBook Air 2018, iPad Pro 2018 Finally For Release?
Not even a month has passed yet since the Apple Keynote event but it looks we will be seeing an October Apple event. The Keynote event, where the company introduced the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone Xr, was sadly not enough to satisfy the thirst of avid Apple fans.
High demand for the iPad Pro 2018
A lot of experts and gadgets fans were shocked when the Apple Keynote ended without a mention of a new iPad Pro 2018 or iPad Pro 3. After all, a lot of tech news sites published news about the new iPad’s release a few days before the event.
If anything, the disappointment only made people want the new iPad Pro more. It would be a missed opportunity for Apple to not give in to its fans.
Introduction of new gadgets and accessories
There are at least three new products or updates that were expected to be introduced in the Apple Keynote event that did not appear at all. One of this is the AirPower charger, which was Apple’s dedicated wireless charging gadget for its devices. People also expected the new AirPods and EarPods to make an appearance.
Number of new releases from rival tech companies
It looks like Samsung, Google and OnePlus will be introducing devices through big events in October. If Apple has its own October Apple event, it would be a good way to keep itself in the headlines. This will also highlight the iPhone Xs Max, iPhone Xr and iPhone Xs Max. Plus, it will be a good way to launch the MacBook Air 2018 and iPad Pro.
Update on the MacBook and MacBook Air 2018
It looks like we will be seeing the MacBook Air 2018 after all. The new laptop is said to be a part of the lineup for the October Apple event. The MacBook Air 2018 could have a 13.3-inch display panel and fast charging capabilities, according to MacBook Air 2018. There is also a possibility that we will see support for iOS apps.
Previous years had a second fall event
Apparently, there is a historical precedent for Apple holding a second fall product event. In fact, the company has a second event during the season 60 percent of the time, according to ZD Net. Often, this is the event where the corporation unveils its computer and tablet devices. It has never done iPhone announcements on these events too.
Data stub hint on iOS beta release
There is a big chance that a new iPad Pro 3 and other iPad Pro 2018 will make its way to retail before the year ends. This is because an iOS 12.1 beta release included a data stub that says “‘2018 fall’ iPad,” according to Mac Daily News. This only strengthens rumors of an October Apple event.
