Following Apple’s special “California Streaming” event in September, which unveiled the new iPad mini, Apple Watch Series 7 and iPhone 13 lines, the company is expected to host another event this month, where they could unveil a number of long-awaited products. and key information.
Apple’s last event was held on Tuesday, September 14, but it was reliable Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman, who often reveals an accurate insight into Apple’s plans, said the company has another event planned for the next few weeks.
The timing of Apple’s annual Back to School promotion may also have hinted at an event on Tuesday, Oct. 12, but we won’t know for sure until invitations are sent out, which could happen in the next few weeks. Here’s what Apple will reveal:
Redesigned MacBook Pro
The biggest event revelation is expected to be the long-awaited redesigned MacBook Pro models. Apple introduced the 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M1 chip in November last year as the entry-level model, but the premium 13-inch and 16-inch models still have Intel chips and haven’t been updated in nearly two years.
The new machines are expected to come in 14 and 16 inch sizes, have new designs with improved thermal characteristics, brighter mini-LED screens with higher resolutions and improved contrast, and a more powerful variant of the “M1X” chip called “M1X” with support for more RAM – a.
The MacBook Pro is expected to restore some of its ports, such as HDMI, SD card readers and MagSafe for faster charging, and return physical function keys instead of the Touch Bar. There may be other enhancements, such as a 1080p webcam, improved battery boost, and “High Power Mode”. See our detailed guide for more information.
Redesigned Mac mini
Apple is believed to be working on a new premium version of the Mac mini that should appear this fall. Apple unveiled the initial Mac mini with the “M1” chip in November last year, but it still has to replace the top Intel versions currently on offer.
It is rumored that the new “Mac mini” will have a more powerful “M1X” chip and a new design with additional connectors, a magnetic power cord and a “plexiglass” tip.
Apple’s third-generation AirPods are believed to be ready for release for months, and counterfeit clones first appeared in April.
The updated headphones are expected to feature a design that reflects AirPods Pro, a shorter, wider charging case, a next-generation wireless chip, force sensor controls, a pressure reduction system and Qi charging as standard.
It would also not be unreasonable to expect the new AirPods to have improved sound quality and better battery life, but so far there have been no rumors about these aspects. The third-generation AirPods are believed to be in mass production and are expected to be released before the end of the year.
macOS Monterey Release Date
With iOS 15, iPadOS 15, watchOS 8 and tvOS 15 now released to the public, macOS Monterey is the latest major operating system update that Apple has left for release this year.
Apple usually waits a little longer to release new versions of macOS, but after months of beta testing, a review of “macOS Monterey” seems to be coming to the final version. The release of the new OS could be coordinated with the launch of the new MacBook Pro and “Mac mini” models, and Apple could announce a release date at a potential October event.
Apple Watch Series 7 release date
Although Apple unveiled the “Apple Watch Series 7” at its event in September, detailing a new design with larger screens, improved durability and faster charging, the company did not provide any information on when the new smartwatch will be released other than simply suggesting that it will be later this fall.
It was rumored before the announcement of the 7 Series that Apple is having trouble producing a new device that could delay its launch, and mass production will reportedly increase in late September. It seems that this was the case without announcing the product launch date. Now that almost all the details of the 7 Series have been revealed, Apple could set dates for pre-orders of the “Apple Watch Series 7” and launch them at the next event.
