SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 18 (Xinhua) -- Apple announced Thursday a major press event for Oct. 30 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York, where it is expected to unveil new tablets and Mac computers with new features seen in its latest iPhones.

The company has issued media invites for the upcoming special event, which were tweeted on social media showing recipients receiving the invitations in customized, artistically colorful designs of the Apple logo.

Apple did not say what the New York press conference would be meant for, but the invites bearing the words of "There's more in the making" suggest the company is going to release new products such as iPad Pros with bigger displays and Face ID facial-recognition feature already used on iPhones.

Media reports said the iPad Pro will have slim bezels, a new USB-C port and 11 inch or 12.9 inch display sizes.

It is also expected that Apple will release a new Mac Mini Pro and a low-cost MacBook with a new screen. A bloomberg report said in August this year that an upgraded version of the Mac Mini desktop will be targeting professional users.

Apple usually launches its new products in fall. It unveiled its new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR at a flashy event on the new campus at its headquarters in Cupertino, northern California.
