During its October keynote, Apple will unveil new products including an iPad Pro which should be in the spotlight!
The date of the October keynote has not yet been revealed by Apple. Last year, it took place on Tuesday, October 18. This event will be an opportunity for Apple to present new generations of products as well as announce the dates for the deployment of updates: iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura. We take stock of the rumors, and in particular of the information unearthed by Mark Gurman, Apple specialist from Bloomberg.
1. New iPad Pro
It’s possible the new iPad Pro will be the star of the October keynote. This new pro version would be equipped with the M2 chip, which would offer better performance overall. Other possible advantages: better battery life, new accessories and a MagSafe connection.
Two versions could emerge:
- 11-inch iPad Pro with LCD screen
- 12.9-inch iPad Pro with miniLED technology
2. 10th generation iPad
Apple could also reveal information on its entry-level iPad. The new 10th generation iPad could get a USB-C port instead of Lightning, which would be a major change for this product. The screen could also be bigger (10.5 to 10.9 inches). Other possible features: Retina display (as on the iPad Air) and A14 Bionic chip.
3. New Macs with M2 chip
Apple has already announced that a new MacBook Pro should arrive. According to the Bloomberg reporter, the new 14-inch and 16-inch models are expected to feature new chips, the M2 Pro and M2 Max processors, which are iterations of last year’s M1 Pro and M1 Max chips.
A second-generation silicon Apple Mac mini is also expected.
4. New updates: iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura
After iOS 16 rolled out last week, two important updates are expected to come out of beta and be available to the general public:
- iPadOS 16 with new collaboration features,
- macOS Ventura with a new way to rearrange its apps.
5. Apple VR/AR headset?
Doubt still hangs over this famous Apple Mixed Reality headset: a mixed reality headset (AR / VR). Could Apple take advantage of its October keynote to reveal the features of this helmet that everyone is talking about? According to rumors, it would be unveiled before the end of the year to start selling in early 2023. In any case, it would be the nice surprise of the keynote!
