Apple is set to launch a new hardware line-up at a Brooklyn event on Tuesday, including the iPad Pro, MacBook Air and an updated Mac Mini.

According to media reports, after launching new iPhones in September, the Cupertino-based tech giant will launch a new hardware series.

“The new iPad Pros are getting completely overhauled with a new design. It’s the iPad equivalent of the jump Apple made with the iPhone X last year,” The Verge reported on Monday.

Other changes for the iPad Pro may be a switch to USB-C and a redesigned Smart Connector.

Apple is expected to improve the internal hardware too, upgrading the chip to a new variant of A12 Bionic chipset.

Apple hasn’t updated the MacBook Air since 2015 but the company is likely to announce a new MacBook Air.

Apple has acquired Italian Application Programming Interface (API) integration developer – Stamplay – for $5.678 million, the media reported.

Stamplay describes itself as a “low code work-flow automation platform, empowering organisations to streamline manual work by integrating data and business applications used every day”.

However, the reasons for the iPhone-maker purchasing the Rome-based start-up remains unclear, VentureBeat reported on Thursday.

“However, it’s noteworthy that this start-up has experience in the financial payments industry, a sector that Apple entered with Apple Pay, and is expected to expand upon with a self-branded credit card next week,” the report said.

In 2016, the start-up won Visa’s Everywhere Initiative API contest and was entrusted with an unspecified development project for the payments giant.
