Announcements during this event may also include an upgrade to the Mac mini and new entry-level Mac laptop. Apple does not hold October events frequently.

The iPad was last upgraded back in the spring, and it is now almost a year since the firm updated iPad Pro. Apple is updating iPad Pro during its October event with a new full-screen design, Liquid Retina display with ProMotion technology and A12X Bionic chip. The new features of this model comprise a Face ID camera as opposed to the Touch ID, and this leads to the elimination of the Home button. Users should also anticipate smaller bezels and the 10.5" model will get an 11" and 12.9" screen with minimal changes in dimensions.

China's Ministry of Information Technology and Industry hinted to the world about a potential new Apple Pencil being released this October.

It will also be compatible with much more applications. Eraser functionality alongside interchangeable points is rumored to be integrated into the pen.
Apple has regularly claimed that Mac mini is still essential to the company. With this, the firm has upgraded the Mac that has been left in the dark since 2013. The new released Mac Mini has been upgraded this Apple Event October 2018. The new Mac Mini has been completely redesigned, equipped with the new eighth-generation 6-core and quad-core processors, up to 64GB of high-performance 2666MHz DDR4 memory, up to 2TB of all-flash, Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C), HDMI 2.0 and available 10Gb Ethernet.
When you hear that an upgrade to the MacBook Air is impending after a prolonged wait, you may not believe it. Rather than eliminating the MacBook Air, Apple has invented a new 13.3-inch model that comprises a Retina display at the same price as that of the present Air. The MacBook possesses 8GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB flash storage, a speed of 1.8GHz alongside Intel's HD Graphics 6000.
What's more, the new lighter and thinner MacBook Air features Touch ID, Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C), the latest generation of butterfly keyboards and Force Touch trackpads. It is made of 100% recycled aluminum, which is the most environmentally friendly Mac.
Apple is projected to uncover upgrades to its wide range of iMacs. Just like the MacBook Pro, the iMac is expected to possess more cores, that is, six as opposed to four core processors. Indeed, you may expect it to have eight cores. It is projected that are good things are in store for the iMac upgrade since the device is marking two decades since its invention.
Concerning the Airpods, Apple is anticipated to at least invent a new charging case for the Airpods along the AirPower. Also, most users should expect a new set of AirPods as well. Moreover, Apple may wish to upgrade the earbuds at the same time. Wireless charging and noise cancellation may also be integrated into these devices.
This has always been quite an embarrassment to Apple. It has been over a year since Apple announced it would be selling wireless charging pad to Apple Watch, AirPods and iPhone. If Apple does not announce availability during this month's event, users will be more than shocked. Nonetheless, it looks like the company wants to forget it ever developed the AirPower.
Apple has been known to make huge announcements during the spring events. Apple is expected to have an education-themed event at the spring of 2019. Apart from the thirteen-inch MacBook, Apple is projected to release Apple streaming video service, new Home Pod, HomePod mini, iPhone SE 2, as well as New over-ear headphones.
WWDC is famously known as Worldwide Developers Conference. It is typically an awesomely software-focused event where the firm publicizes the flagship features in its yearly OS upgrades for the advantage of its software developer partners who have to upgrade their system to function with the new Operating System. The 2019 WWDC will probably feature upgrades to watchOS, tvOS, macOS, and iOS.
