Apple to announce new Macs at 27 October event


If you’ve had your eye on an Apple MacBook, you may want to hang on for a month or so. A new report from ReCode claims that Apple is on track for an October MacBook announcement.

That’s something that has been expected for some time but a lack of a solid date this late in the month has put previous reports in doubt. But ReCode‘s sources claim that Apple is scheduling a 27 October reveal event where we’ll see what a revamped MacBook lineup has to offer.

The company is expected to reveal updated hardware, with one of the key feature being an OLED strip replacing the top row of the keyboard. TouchID and AMD GPUs are also expected to make an appearance and there are a few subtractions in the works as well.

The USB port might be going away and we might also see Apple’s 11-inch models going the way of the Dodo. But at least there’s also thought to be a new MacBook Air on the way. It’s been far too long since we’ve seen one of those.

Apple, true to form, hasn’t commented on any of the reports yet. We’ll have to see when the company makes the event official, which should be any minute now.
