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.
