Apple holds events several times each year to announce new products and services. Aside from the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), Spring and Fall events usually zero in on certain products.

A random extra event can pop up, too. Rumors say that an October 2022 event will announce a redesigned iPad, iPad Pro, and potentially new MacBook Pro models and a Mac Mini.

What Is the Next Apple Event?

The next Apple event is likely a bonus October event, where the redesigned iPad and iPad Pro, as well as the new MacBook Pro and Mac Mini, are expected to be unveiled. Check back here for more information as the date draws near.

How to Attend the Event

Apple offers a free live stream to everyone; the October 2022 event should be no different. Crank up your PC or mobile device and connect to see what the tech giant has to show.

What Announcements Will Apple Make?

Apple likes to keep everyone on their toes and doesn't release much information to the public before the event.

That said, at the October event, we expect Apple to reveal its new iPad and iPad Pro, as well as the new MacBook and Mac Mini.

Below is a look at what happened at the September 2022 event.
