But what took many by surprise when the invitations hit reporters’ inboxes was the choice of venue: Instead of a location at its Cupertino, California, headquarters or somewhere in the Bay Area, Apple chose the Howard Gilman Opera House at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City.

That seems apt, since what Apple will likely unveil is of great interest to creative professionals: new iPad Pros and Mac hardware. Specifically, two new iPad Pro models (small and large) with edge-to-edge displays and a new Apple Pencil. On the Mac side, the iMac line is due for a refresh, and there may also be a true successor for the MacBook Air on deck. There’s a bunch of other stuff Apple is overdue to catch us up on as well.
