Apple is going to organize another online event this month.
The event will take place on 18 October at 10 a.m. local Pacific time or 6 p.m. in the UK. Like all Apple events since the start of the pandemic, it will be held online.
The invitation did not give any clue about what the incident might have been. It only included the word “Unleashed” and a blue version of the Apple logo.
Apple’s marketing boss, Greg Joswiak, shared a moving version of the same example — but it also showed what could be announced exactly.
But it’s almost certain that the event’s headlining release will be new versions of the Mac. They’re likely to bring Apple’s own chips to at least some of their more high-performance computers.
Apple announced last June that it would move all of its computers to its processors within two years. The first Macs with Apple silicon were released last November — in the form of a new MacBook Pro, Air and Mac mini, which all included the M1 chip — and the new 24-inch iMac with the same processor arrived this summer. Was.
But that still leaves more performance-focused computers — such as the larger MacBook Pros, and Mac Pros — without access to the huge performance upgrades that are coming from Apple silicon. Rumors have been swirling for months that a new, higher-powered version of the chip will allow at least some computers to switch from Intel this year.
The results of that work are likely to be presented at the ‘Unleashed’ event. Rumors suggest that Apple will introduce a new 14-inch and 16-inch versions of the MacBook Pro, which could also include the first redesign for the line in years.
As well as processor changes, reports have suggested that the new MacBooks may bring long-requested improvements, such as the re-introduction of MagSafe charging and the revival of previously removed ports such as HDMI and SD card slots. .
Apple may finally announce an upgraded version of the AirPods as well. They’ll borrow some of the design from the AirPods Pro — including their shorter stalks — but put them in a cheaper package, rumors have suggested.
Those are likely to be key announcements, not least because most of Apple’s line-up has been upgraded recently. An event last month saw the release of new iPhones, iPads and the Apple Watch Series 7, which go on sale Friday.
The launch date is notable in large part because it’s a Monday, which is pretty unusual for an Apple event. The company may have opted to schedule it ahead of the next day, the 19th Google event, during which the new Pixel phones are expected to be unveiled.
