Back in June 2017, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro got introduced, and Apple has been pretty mum on its tablet family, which is already seemingly partaking in a one-horse race on yet another market that Apple is domineering. The new models are also expected to include faster processors and an Apple-designed graphics chip for the first time, but will lack the more vibrant OLED screens used in the iPhone X and iPhone XS.
Apple is expected to unveil a new line of iPad Pro 2018 series in Brooklyn later this month.
The new iPad Pro models will also feature reduced bezels that are approximately 6mm across all sides of the device. Apple Pencils, which are an integral part of the iPad pro experience, could also see some major updating.
It is also expected that Apple will release a new Mac Mini Pro and a low-priced MacBook with a new screen. Now a new leak is in that Apple might again ditch Lightning ports on its iPads with the USB Type-C. It is also expected that the company could launch a new version of the Apple Pencil along with these new iPads.More news: Mourinho: Martial Has Learned His Role

The latter is the more intriguing one for us, as it has always been the go-to option for Apple fans unable to handle the price tag that a MacBook Pro commands. Apple has propped up demand with cheaper models and the more-capable iPad Pro, which works with a keyboard.
The cryptic iPad code was uncovered in iOS 12.1 - the forthcoming upgrade to iOS 12, which was rolled out to Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch owners worldwide on Monday.
Apple has updated its website about the details on the upcoming event. It is, however, the second Apple product launch outside of California this year. We've recently shown off exclusive renders of the iPad Pro (12.9-inch) that will boast of a thin bezel design.
The Mac Mini, meanwhile, is in a similar spot having been lapsed in design and spec updates by its iMac and iMac Pro siblings.
