Apple’s California Streaming event — where the company unveiled the iPhone 13 range, a revamped iPad Mini, and the Apple Watch Series 7 — was full of surprises. But we were also taken aback by what was totally absent from the show.
Highly rumored products like the AirPods 3 and new MacBook Pros failed to make an appearance. The good news? We probably won’t have long to wait until they take to the stage. Apple is widely expected to have another show lined up as soon as next month. If you’re itching to find out what could be unveiled, you’re in luck, as we’ve rounded up everything we expect to see at Apple’s next showstopper.
This event hasn’t been officially announced yet, but we can make some guesses about the date based on conjecture and some recent reports.
Reports from leakers Jon Prosser and Mark Gurman both claimed Apple was planning two September events, one focused on the iPhone 13 and one focused on the M1X MacBook Pro. This always seemed unlikely, but if it does end up being true, official invites would be sent out on September 21 for a September 28 event.
The more likely outcome is an October event. This would provide more space between events and also line up with the time frame Apple has traditionally followed. Apple likes to hold events in October, and has done so seven times in the last decade. Most (but not all) of these shows have occurred in mid-to-late October. Gurman recently reported that the M1X MacBook Pros would be launching in “several” weeks, pointing to an October event.
