Just when we thought Apple was done with the 2023 launches, along came the announcement of the upcoming ‘Scary Fast’ event. The event is scheduled for next week and would focus on the arrival of the new MacBooks with the new M3 chip. This is what you can expect.
Forecasts for Apple’s upcoming events
Apple will be ‘Scary fast‘ event 30 October, just in time for Halloween. This will take place at 8:00 PM ET. This is October 31, 5:30 AM IST, a rather strange time for an Apple event! While this announcement doesn’t reveal anything about what we’ll see, it’s becoming clear that the Cupertino tech giant will introduce the new M3 MacBooks, as this year’s iPhones have already been announced.
For those who don’t know, an earlier report has been published suggested that Apple will skip launching new MacBooks this year and instead go for an early 2024 timeline. But the October event is happening anyway, and it was tipped a few days ago. This comes after the new Apple Pencil with the USB Type-C port announced last week.
As for what to expect, that will most likely be the case M3 chip, including the standard version, the M3 Pro and the M3 Max. There could also be an M3 Ultra chip. Have been testing these for a while (M3 with the Mac mini) and the M3 Pro chip) and are planned to support up to 28 CPU and 80 GPU cores and could be based on TSMC’s 3nm process, much like the latest A17 Pro Bionic chipset.
There could be a new M3 MacBook Air and based on Ming-Chi Kuo’s latest predictions, one M3-powered MacBook Pro could also see the light of day. There’s still no word on whether it will be the 14-inch and 16-inch models or the slightly lowered 13-inch model.
Apple has not updated the 24-inch iMac since 2021, so expecting it wouldn’t be that bad. Since these are just rumors, the question remains what Apple has in store. The event is just a few days away, so it’s best to wait and watch. We will keep you informed about what Apple serves on our plate. so watch this space. What are your thoughts on this?
