However, before the event there were rumors that we would also like to see some other products that do not end up happening.
Rumors suggested Apple worked on updated iMac models with new processors, but it does not look like the iMac line will get an update in 2018 at this time.
There was not much detailed information about what can be expected from a new iMac but Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple worked on a version with an upgraded processor and a "significant screen performance upgrade." "
With no new iMac that looks like today's event, we do not know when we see an updated version.
Before today's event, there was a lot of confusion over a rumor cheaper notebook, which turned out to be a MacBook Air . It was not clear whether the device should be in the MacBook Air or MacBook family for good reason ̵
These options turned out to be true, and the new MacBook Air MacBook Air is slimmer with thinner brackets, a faster processor, built-in Touch ID and a Retina display, the feature that formerly distinguishes MacBook Air from 12-inch MacBook .
Now like this new $ 1,199 MacBook Air with 8. Intel Processors, Touch ID T2 chip and a slimmer chassis exist, it's not clear what Apple plans to Do the 12-inch MacBook line, starting with just $ 100 more.
There were rumors about the 12-inch MacBook line also would be updated at today's event, but it was not updated.
Is this the end of the MacBook ? It's not clear what Apple has in stock for its thinnest, lightest machine, nor when it can see an update. With the faster 8th generation processor and a retina display in the new MacBook Air MacBook Air MacBook Air is the only real difference between MacBook Air MacBook and ]. MacBook is smaller size.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in front of Apple's event that a new iPad mini is in the works, but he was not sure if it would be included in 30. October product sales. As it turns out, it was not and if a new iPad mini is in development, there is no word on when we see it starting.
There were some speculation that Apple could still debut the AirPower Charging Matter and compatible AirPods in the October event, but it did not happen.
We have no idea that we can expect to see the AirPower launch, if it's still in work, nor when Apple will launch updated AirPods . At this point, we may not see these products once in 2019.
We hope to have a close look at Apple's work on its promised high-end high-throughput modular Mac Pro that Apple is developing for release in 2019, but it seems we'll have a longer waiting time to get our first glimpse of Apple's professional machine.
Missing iPhone XR Cases and iPad Smart Covers
It's still unclear why Apple has not introduced cases to iPhone XR specifically after mentioning specific clear cases for device in iPhone XR press release in some countries, but after today's event, there are still no signs of Apple-designed iPhone XR cases.
Apple also did not introduce new Smart Covers for its updated 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, but there are new Smart Folio options and the new Smart Keyboard Folio.
