Apple has officially announced its October 30 event, calling it “scary fast,” after several rumors. The invitation shows the Apple logo on a black background, mimicking the Mac Finder icon, so we can expect new Macs. The event will be held online with pre-registration.
Macs are expected to feature new processors, but major design changes are unlikely. Recent rumors suggest that there may be slight improvements to the displays. An updated 24-inch iMac model may be unveiled at the event.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro, 14-inch MacBook Pro, and 16-inch MacBook Pro may get new chips.
Next-generation MacBook Air models with M3 chips aren’t expected until early 2024. In addition, a larger “professional” version of the iMac with a 32-inch display and new design is expected in late 2024 or 2025.
New iPads, including the 11th-generation iPad, seventh-generation iPad Mini and sixth-generation iPad Air, aren’t expected until March 2024, so the focus of the event should be on Macs only.
Apple’s event will be streamed live on the company’s website, on YouTube and via the Apple TV app. The event will begin at 5 p.m. PT on October 30 (5:30 a.m. ET on October 31).
