Rather than hosting the press in California as it usually does, Apple is coming right to PCMag's backyard here in New York City.

Here's a recap of what Apple is anticipated to announce in Brooklyn.

Apple has received some criticism for its recent MacBook Pro laptops over the keyboard formats, which some users have complained about. If it happens, it'll be nice to see this increasingly industry-standard connection on another Apple product, given that the iPhones are still sticking with Lightning connectors.

It's unclear if Face ID will only work in portrait or landscape mode, or if Apple has figured out a way for it to identify faces in either orientation.

The iMac, MacBook and MacBook Pro without Touch Bar are now sold with seventh-generation Intel Core chips, and are anticipated to see updates to the newer eighth-generation components at some point in the near future. The firm confirmed the event details in one of their Apple Events webpage.

The new icon in question displays an iPad with rounded corners, no Home button and no notch. It's very possible there will be more than one model of this new iPad Pro, varying either in size or storage capacity (or both). Additionally, the pair of new iPad Pro tablets will come with a USB-C port.

Pochettino: Alli may return from injury for Man City clash
As he acknowledged, a new stadium is no guarantee of success - especially against the spending power of a team such as City. Disappointed because we are still waiting for the new stadium when the expectation was to be there from the beginning.

Kohli fastest to complete 10,000 ODI runs
Kohli overtook his predecessor MS Dhoni as he surpassed him to become India's fourth highest run-scorer in one-day internationals. The Trinidadian said his decision was also based on a desire to vacate the field for younger talent in the national team.

And while the Dodgers get to play up to three straight, there are no guarantees that a Game 5 will happen. Viewership for Game 2 of the World Series was the lowest in four years, the same as the opener.

The USB-C port would allow for faster charging and output of up to 4K when the iPad is connected to another monitor. Just this week, Kuo published an analyst note wherein the iPad Mini line is still alive.

As per the event invite, Apple has said "There's more in the making".

MacBook Air successor is expected to be launching at tomorrow's event. There could be a new design for the Apple Pencil as well. This time around, according to the most credible rumors, the Cupertino crew is ready to show off what could be music to your ears: new Macs and iPads. We're also expecting Apple to introduce new features that will appeal to software developers and creative professionals, like external monitor support. AirPower, which has seen numerous delays (as recently as last month), was removed nearly entirely from Apple's website.

Apple's smallest desktop computer, the Mac Mini, has not seen an update since 2014 and is still sold with fourth-generation Intel Core chips.

Apple's wireless earbuds, AirPods, have been included in rumors, with the anticipation of an updated feature set that includes Siri integration and a wireless charging case.
