One week from today Apple will reveal its latest Macs during an invitation-only event in Cupertino. MacBook Pro updates have been highly anticipated this year, with several improvements in the pipeline. The "Hello Again" press event is scheduled for Thursday October 27, with the invitation harking back to 1984's original Mac introduction "Hello". The event marks the first major design changes to the MacBook Pro line since 2012. So what can we expect?
Apple Media Event
The buzz surrounding tomorrow's Apple media event has reached a fever pitch. The company is expected to launch a highly anticipated update to the 4-inch iPhone, dubbed the iPhone SE. Besides the deluge of rumors surrounding the event, more leaks seem to have confirmed major changes in the iPhone 7 camera design, speakers and ports. Read on for more on this news and other highlights from the week in Apple.
The wait is almost over! Apple sent out invites to select media outlets for their big event on October 4. The invitation featured four iOS icons of a clock, the date, a phone and a map with the tagline "Let's talk iPhone." Apple CEO Tim Cook is expected to announce either the iPhone 5, "iPhone 4S," or both at the event.
Hopefully most of our questions will be answered and the iPhone 5 will be unveiled. Sprint should be announced as the newest U.S. iPhone carrier, and Facebook is also supposed to launch their new iPad app at the event. At least we know this will put an end to all the wild speculation and internet rumors.
Those unnamed "sources close to the situation" are at it once again, this time telling John Paczkowski of All Things Digital that new Apple CEO Tim Cook, will be announcing the iPhone 5 on October 4th.
Actually... They told him Apple will be holding a big media event on October 4th, we all just assume it will be to unveil the iPhone 5.
Sorry if I can't get excited about an unconfirmed report about the iPhone 5 possibly being announced, but after so many months of misleading rumors, and such a long wait, I rather skip the press conference and just know an actual release date. Apple fans are hoping that the lag time between the big event and the iPhone 5 launch will be short, but I'm not getting my hopes up just in case. However, it would be kind of crappy on Apple's part to throw Cook to the wolves by forcing him to announce the iPhone 5 won't be ready until 2012. I'm guessing if Apple plans to hold a spectacle for their next generation device, they also plan to release it soon.
