Apple has sent out invites to the press for an event on Thursday, October 27. With this year’s iPhone announcement out of the way and the event being called Hello Again with a colourful and smoky Apple logo, we can safely assume Apple will finally give us a new MacBook along with other hardware.
Even though Apple’s event invites give no more than a stylised logo, a tagline and a date, there are always subtle hints as to what we can expect. The first Mac was introduced in 1984 with a simple Hello, and the logo in the event invite sports colourful smoke that could be a nod to Apple’s then rainbow logo. There was also a Bloomberg report claiming Apple’s autumn event would include a new desktop iMac, MacBook Air and a stand-alone 5K monitor.
The MacBook Pro that Apple still sells was introduced in 2012. So we can expect a full revamp in design and technology. Rumours have circulated about the new MacBook for some time now claiming an OLED touch-control bar that can display a variety of dynamic function keys. We can also expect, unfortunately, the introduction of a single USB-C port on the laptop that will follow what began with the new 12-inch MacBook.
As with the iPhone 7, we are keeping our hopes up and our fingers crossed to be the first in line to receive Apple’s latest and long overdue goodies. You can livestream the event on October 27th at 9pm local time or check in with us to know what’s coming out of Cupertino.
