Apple is preparing an October event to launch its new devices and software. The company just made a significant event on September 7. It launched the new iPhone 14 series, Apple Watch Series 8, and AirPods Pro 2nd Gen at the event. Now, Apple is expected to launch the new iPads, Macs, and iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura operating systems. Here are the details about the Apple October event.
New iPads, Macs, iPadOS 16, and macOS Ventura
According to Mark Gurman from Bloomberg, Apple could launch the new iPad Pro with an M2 processor at the October event. New Apple tablets would come in two versions, 11-inch iPad Pro with LCD and a 12.9-inch iPad Pro with miniLED technology. Apple is also planning to bring the MagSafe connection to these tablets according to the latest rumors.
Apple is also expected to launch a cheaper iPad which will be the new 10th-generation iPad. It is codenamed J272, and it will have a USB-C port instead of Apple’s Lightning. Gurman says that the new iPad will have the A14 Bionic chip while the Pro model could come with M2.
More Macs with M2 chips at the October event
Apple had been working on M2-based versions of the Mac mini, Mac Pro and MacBook Pro according to Gurman. He also says that we’re likely to see at least a pair of those machines about in October. The tech giant already announced that Apple is working on a new Mac Pro. The new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros could launch in fall 2022 and spring 2023 with M2 Pro and M2 Max processors. So, it is possible to see these machines at the Apple October event.
Additionally, we will see the new iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura at the event. Apple will release iOS 16, watchOS 9, and tvOS 16 on September 12 with new features and improvements. Therefore, it is possible to launch the new operating systems at the October event. Apple didn’t give any details about the upcoming event. We will have to wait until the official announcements for the event date.
