Reports in recent weeks have suggested that Apple will unveil new iPads on a specific date. That October 17th came and went, and we didn't get the news iPad 11, iPad mini 7 and iPad Air 6. by Bloomberg Mark Gurman now claims that Apple will unveil a new one iMac in a few days, either on October 30th or October 31st. Interestingly, new MacBook Pro models may also arrive alongside the iMac, including M3 versions of the 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro.
Then again, Apple's Ming-Chi Kuo said last month that Apple might not release new M3 Macs this year. Last week, he said Apple won't refresh the iMac until next year.
Gourman notes in his Turn on newsletter that iMac owners haven't seen an update in over 900 days. That was never the plan, obviously. Apple wanted to release an M2 iMac Pro and then a 24-inch iMac refresh.
Apple was forced to scrap the iMac Pro due to cost concerns. Instead, it came with the combination of Mac Studio and Studio Display.
Fast forward to the end of October and Apple may have a Mac-centric product launch planned for the last few days of the month. Gourman provides evidence that it may be. The iMac is in short supply at Apple stores.
Also, the 13-inch MacBook Pro and the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro may see refreshes. Some MacBook Pro configurations won't ship until mid-November if ordered now. This could be a sign that an update is coming.
BGR's José Adorno pointed out the stock MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch issues more than a week ago. At the time, you had to wait 2-3 weeks for some M2 Pro/Max configurations to ship.
This που confusing to all of this, if the MacBook Pro refresh happens, is that Apple will release new versions of the 14-inch and 16-inch models less than a year after the M2 Pro/Max update.
Also, this would mean that the M3 Pro/Max MacBooks may come out before the base M3 MacBook Air models. These are still expected next year. Gurman says Apple has made progress with the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros running on advanced M3 processors.
Τέλος, η Apple έχει προγραμματίσει την έκθεση κερδών για το τρίμηνο Σεπτεμβρίου 2023 για τις 2 Νοεμβρίου. Ως εκ τούτου, θα μπορούσε να αποκαλύψει τους νέους Mac στις 30 ή 31 Οκτωβρίου. Η Apple το είχε ξανακάνει αυτό το 2018, όταν πραγματοποίησε μια manifestation για iPad και Mac στις 30, ημέρες πριν από την κλήση κερδών.
