The new iPads could also introduce a USB-C charging port to the iOS family for the first time, so that they share connectivity with Apple's laptops, and if the rumours are true they will also mark the first time a custom Apple graphics chip has been used in an iPad. Even better, thanks to its beefy internals, the iPad Pro would be able to output 4K HDR video to an external monitor over USB-C. The iPhone X's and iPhone XS' Face ID authentication functionality will likely make its way to the 2018 iPad Pro, and as a result, the tablet is also rumoured to ditch Touch ID.
Just like the current iPhone XS and the iPhone XR, the new iPads seemingly won't have Apple's famous home button as the company has dramatically reduced the size of the screen bezels. The new MacBook Air will also come with bumped up hardware compared to the current version.
But the new MacBook Air is probably a more awaited product. According to Kuo, the new iPad Pro models will have slim bezels, with displays that stretch almost edge to edge, similar to new iPhone models like the iPhone XS. This will be the first update to Mac Mini since 2014. Based on his previous predictions, Kuo is sure that this computer will be a replacement to the MacBook Air, with a 13-inch Retina display to replace the fuzzy low-res display on the old Air.
Apple is also likely to bring the new generation Pencil stylus with improved sensitivity and also offer longer battery life.

The Mac Mini is the least likely, at least if you believe the quantity of buzz around it.
AdvertisementThese devices are getting a nip here and a tuck there, resulting in their biggest redesign since... ever.
The new Mac Mini will reportedly feature an Intel's 8th-generation processor, modern ports, which, of course, will include USB-C and possibly a shift to faster SSD storage. The Bloomberg report said the Mac mini will be targeted a little more up-market than its predecessor. However, post the event, the company removed all references of the wireless charger from its website.
Apple's next media event will take place in NY on October 30th, and during that event, a few things are likely to happen or are at least possible. However, given the lack of any concrete leaks confirming their existence, it does seem unlikely that we will see AirPods 2 being unveiled next week.
