Apple Scary Fast Halloween Event: What to Expect?
Apple Events website has the dark Apple logo banner, which morphs into the Finder icon, which is exclusive to Macs. It’s safe to assume that the Cupertino-based tech giant will launch new MacBooks at the upcoming event. Thanks to the Scary Fast tagline, it’s being speculated that the company will launch new MacBooks with the next generation M3 chipset. Apple seems to be deviating from its 2-year refresh cycle for Macs.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman Apple will launch a trio of M3 chipsets at the event including the M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max. Gurman has also predicted that the company will refresh its 24-inch iMac as well. Another leak suggests that Apple might also launch the iPad Mini 7th generation and a new Magic Keyboard at the same event. Notably, Apple last launched an iPad Mini two years ago in 2021 and it’s due for a refresh as well.
