Apple Announces October Event for Macs: 'Scary Fast'

....Apple today announced its second fall event of 2023, with the online event set to be held on Monday, October 30 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time. Apple's October event will be about the Mac, and the company is expected to refresh several Macs in the lineup. Apple's Events website features an Apple logo on a black background that morphs into the Mac Finder icon, confirming the event's Mac focus.

As with prior events, this October event will be prerecorded, and it will be held online only with no in-person component.

Mac rumors have been confusing in recent months, but there are several possibilities. We could see a refreshed version of the 24-inch iMac, as that machine is still using an M1 Apple silicon chip. Bloomberg's Mark Gurman has said not to expect a MacBook Air refresh, but the 13-inch MacBook Pro, 14-inch MacBook Pro, and 16-inch MacBook Pro could potentially get new chips.

It is not clear if the refresh will focus on new M3-series chips, but depending on what's being overhauled, we could see the ?iMac? and the MacBook Pro models adopting the 3-nanometer M3 chip lineup.

Given the confusion surrounding the Mac lineup right now, this is one of the more mysterious events we've had, though we are likely to hear more as October 30 approaches.
Apple plans to stream the event live on its website, on YouTube, and through the Apple TV app. For those unable to watch, MacRumors will be providing full event coverage on MacRumors.com and the MacRumorsLive Twitter account.......



……here come the new…..Macs…..?!

Out of curiosity, what announcement would make it not "ho-hum"?

I'm hoping for M3 MacBook Pro 14", to drive down the prices of the older ones. I'd be surprised if we see that, but a guy can dream....

I’m not sure. I used to look forward to and enjoy these presentations and products but my Macs are fast enough that I’m no longer impressed. Even better displays don’t move me.

One man's meat is another man's poison.

My neighbor was ecstatic "his" Vikings won last night... especially here in Nor Cal, where 49ers (and Raiders) fans dominate -- he went on for a good 5-10 minutes discussing plays, and future games matchups, and how its awesome they were in rhythm (he really liked that word, said it a lot).

To which I replied "I don't watch football"...

M3 iPad Pro with OLED display...

A year after its purchase, I wonder if I will EVER outstrip the capabilities of my M2 iPad Pro...

...but an OLED display would be nice.

My original iPad Pro is my bedtime reader/game device. It's finally getting a little slow. But the screen still looks fine, at least indoors.

I wonder how long before your M2 iPad will feel slow?

A 27” iMac, but my wife has already moved on by getting a Studio and a 27” Samsung 4k monitor. She prefers the matte screen of the Samsung over her old iMac.

Sounds nice, but awful ergonomics.

I saw CRT's with touch screens back in the late 80's. They were used to display the alarm status of sensors in security zones. The operator could acknowledge an alarm by touching the screen, which was useful.

However, I can't imagine having to hold my arm up for extended periods of time to do things.

But, they could bring back the "lamp shade" design, putting the display on an adjustable arm that could tilt down to an angled writing surface height!

Yeah, mine was getting slow, too. That was the catalyst for the purchase of my current unit.

Me too! The M2 is so powerful, It's hard to imaging such a day will come!

Kinda like touch on a laptop. I miss it when moving between laptops that do and don't have it. The screen is right there.
