Report: Apple planning to hold new Mac event October 27

Apple will introduce new Macs at an event on October 27, reports Recode. Citing sources familiar with the company’s plans, the outlet says that the event will likely take place at or near Apple’s Cupertino campus, rather than its typical venue in San Francisco.

Recode doesn’t specify exactly which Mac products we’ll see, but most of Apple’s laptop and desktop lines are due for an update. A report from Japanese blog Mac Otakara yesterday called for new 13″ and 15″ MacBook Pro models, and a refreshed 13-inch Air.

Apple is planning to introduce new Macs at an Oct. 27 event, sources confirmed to Recode. The move had long been expected, given that the company released MacOS Sierra last month but had yet to introduce any new computer models sporting the software. It also comes just in time for Apple to have the new products on sale for the full holiday season.

The most anticipated Mac update is the redesigned MacBook Pro. Evidence indicates that the new laptop will sport a thinner profile, an OLED touch bar, Touch ID and a larger Trackpad. If the above date is true, expect invitations to go out within the next few days.

      • disqus_6bcHVmKl86

        Oh I forgot that this is an Apple biased website.
        Tbh, I was really waiting for this new Macbook Pro announcement, until I heard they were going to remove the USB 3.0 port. WHY APPLE, WHYYYYY? Ofcourse now we have to buy a converter from Apple that costs like 79$ extra. YAAAY. They could atleast put a USB 3.0 port in it besides the USB-C.

        Those USB C (Thunderbolt 3) bring signal for:
        – USB 3.1
        – Ethernet
        – PCIexpress
        – Recharge (up to 100W)
        – Audio (like 3.5mm jack)
        – HDMI
        – DisplayPort
        They are universal ports
