A new iPad Pro and MacBook Air were announced on Tuesday as part of an Apple event in New York.

The event was held at an opera house in Brooklyn, suggesting Apple is pushing products focused on creativity and the arts.

As overall tablet sales decline, Apple has been promoting its high-end iPad Pro as ideal for artists, photographers and other creators. A new model is expected, as the last update came nearly 17 months ago.

The new iPad Pro will adopt features found in the latest iPhones, including facial-recognition technology to unlock the device.
