Apple Set to announce new Macs next week

Apple Set to announce new Macs next week

The October event was previously rumored by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who said “there will be two events” from Apple this fall, as usual, and the second event could focus on new Macs, more iPads and new MacBook Pros with an updated version of Apple’s M1 processor. (Here are all the rumors we’ve heard about the 2021 MacBook Pro.)

At the company’s September event, Apple unveiled its new iPhone 13 lineup alongside the Apple Watch 7, iPad Mini 6 and updated entry-level iPad.

Prior to Apple’s latest launch event, the company hosted two other events earlier in 2021. The first event was in April, where we saw new iPad upgrades, colorful iMacs, AirTag trackers, a purple iPhone 12 and more. (Here’s everything Apple announced in the spring.) Then, two months later, it held the annual WWDC developers event, where we saw a first look at iOS 15, MacOS Monterey (aka MacOS 12), WatchOS 8 and iPadOS 15.

The iPhone 13 lineup mirrors last year’s iPhone 12 collection with standard, Mini, Pro and Pro Max versions. The updated iPhone runs on iOS 15 and features a few camera upgrades, upped storage, a new A15 Bionic processor and more.

Story Highlights

  • Following the launch of the iPhone 13, 13 Mini, 13 Pro, and 13 Pro Max earlier this month, Apple is gearing up for its next event on Monday, Oct. 18 at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET. The event will be webcast live on Apple’s website, as it has been in the past, and here’s how to watch it from home.

  • Gurman also expects the AirPods 3 to debut by the end of this year, and several other products to arrive in 2022 including the new AirPods Pro, an updated iPad Pro, revamped Mac Pros and MacBook Airs with Apple Silicon.
