Apple has finally sent out invites for their highly anticipated October 27th event, where they are supposed to release a new MacBook Pro, an updated MacBook Air with USB-C and iMac.
The MacBook Pro will likely take centre stage: with features like Touch ID, slimmer design, "Dynamic Function Row" (as per Bloomberg) - an OLED touch bar replacing the top row of the Mac keyboard, USB-C, Thunderbolt 3 and a processor and GPU upgrade. MacRumours points out these details in the below video:
The wait for the MacBook Pro upgrade has been very long indeed, with the last major release taking place over 500 days ago (from MacRumours Buyers Guide):
As for the MacBook Air, it is said to get an upgrade to USB-C and Thunderbolt 3, and the iMac models are said to get new processors and GPUs. The MacBook Air 11" model will likely be killed by Apple in the coming year.
PC sales have been falling since years, and recently Mac sales have slouched too. The expectations are high, and Apple should deliver competitive products.
The event will be streamed live on Apple's website:
