Apple launched the iMac Pro, a $4,999 high-end workstation with Intel Xeon processors and AMD Radeon graphics, though it's standard iMac model is just about due for a refresh - potentially with Intel's 9th Gen processors.

With smaller bezels, Apple is ditching its iconic home button with Touch ID, and replacing the technology with its facial recognition platform, Face ID.

As for other iPad Pro design changes worth mentioning, the new tablets will reportedly not ship with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

This coming Tuesday, Apple will hold a special media event in Brooklyn where the company is expected to unveil a range of new hardware, including a pair of new iPad Pro models in 11-inch and 12.9-inch form factors.

On the latest iPhone XS, Face ID still doesn't work in landscape mode and hopefully, Apple will address this on the latest iPad since it's going to be used in landscape mode a lot. The new iPads will also come with a Face ID scanner.

Today we've got another report that lends credence to reports for an upcoming iPad Pro redesign. The sides of the tablet appear to the completely flat like the sides of an iPhone 5 with no noticeable tapering. The new iPads are also expected to powered by Apple's recently released A12 Bionic chipset also found inside the newest iPhones including the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR.

An updated Apple Pencil, succeeding the original version launched in 2015. But ahead of the formal announcement, as many as three new Mac models running macOS 10.14 Mojave have been spotted in the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) database. The screen of the MacBook Air will have a much higher resolution and slimmer bezels compared to the previous generation MacBook Air.
