Apple: New Ipad Pro with with USB-C, MacBook Air successor, and new Mac Mini
The iPad Pro — seemingly both sizes of it — will be getting a redesign, giving it a nearly edge-to-edge display, Face ID, and a USB-C port.
That’ll be a huge deal, as it’ll mark the first time that Apple has traded out its exclusive Lightning port in favor of the increasingly universal USB-C standard. The new iPads will not have a home button and will gain an Apple-made graphics chip, something that’s never been in an iPad before.
Moreover, a MacBook Air successor with a high-res screen is coming. There is no definitive reports on whether it’ll be updated parts in the Air’s body, a brand new take on the Air, or just an alternate version of the MacBook. The new device will have a 13-inch screen, which means that at the very least, it’ll be different than today’s MacBook.
Another attraction is an updated Mac mini which last saw a new model in 2014. It will get new processors and some other features meant for pro users. Updated iMacs and iMac Pros are also in the works, as is a processor bump for the 12-inch MacBook, but it’s not clear if those will all be ready for the event.
