This coming Tuesday, Apple will host its second live product announcement even of the fall. While September’s event focused on three new iPhone models and an updated Apple Watch, we expect this event to include updates to the iPad Pro that would add new power user features and bring the device closer in design to the company’s latest iPhones. We wouldn’t be surprised to see some new Macs, too.

The event will take place at the Howard Gilman Opera House and Brooklyn Academy of Music. The last event was at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, but it’s not unusual for the company to branch out to new locations that fit the theme of the products being introduced. For example, the company introduced its education-targeted iPads at a school in Chicago earlier this year.

To that point, creative work seems to be the implied focus of the products coming this week. There’s the venue, yes, but Apple also accompanied members of the press’ invitation with the words “there’s more in the making” and a series of artists’ renditions of its logos in various styles, pictured here.
