Apple invites press to October 30 NYC event

New hardware expected, two days before Apple’s fiscal Q4 earnings report.

October 30From Ina Fried on Axios, which had different art than CNBC:

The company is widely expected to introduce an iPad that, like recent iPhones, drops the fingerprint-sensing home button in favor of FaceID and an all-screen design. Other possible introductions include a rumored MacBook Air replacement as well as its delayed AirPower wireless charging mat.

From The Loop:

october 30

My take: That the event is being held in Brooklyn, not Manhattan, is a feather in the cap for the borough, which is poorer, hipper, more dot.commy. The venue is the Brooklyn Academy of Music, a few blocks from my old stomping grounds in Park Slope. I’ll be there.

    Intriguing. So go nuts.

    The visual suggests iPad announcements. And the usual suspects say the same. Adobe just announced Photoshop on the iPad. So what is “in the making”? 3D tools on the iPad? with some 3D printing tools or services?

    While this is pure speculation on my part, it aligns with two major themes: 1) Apple’s concerted effort in education, especially K-12; 2) Apple’s long term investment in the A series processors which already outstrip Intel’s IA in design and silicon manufacturing.

    The above would be only a first step in making iPads a tool for professionals.

    I’m a nut case on the A series. Note: The Intel chip evolved from lowly beginnings in the 70’s to become the compute engine of the cloud, killing the mainframe and server incumbents.
