Apple is holding a special event tomorrow, and by now, we all know what to expect from it: new iPhones and Apple Watches. Of course, the company may have a few surprises for Tuesday, such as new versions of its accessories to add USB-C. But there are three things we shouldn’t expect from Apple’s September event.
New M3 Macs
Apple has been working on new Macs with the M3 chip for a while now, and although some rumors claimed that the company would introduce them at WWDC 2023 back in June, that didn’t happen. Instead, Apple launched a new 15-inch MacBook Air with the current M2 chip, as well as a new Mac Studio and Mac Pro with M2 Max and M2 Ultra.
Apple fans waiting for new Macs will have to wait a bit longer. There are no hints that Apple will announce new computers at this week’s event.
According to a recent Bloomberg report, the company has been expanding its internal testing of Macs powered by the M3 chip. Among the new models are updated versions of the 13-inch MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, iMac, and Mac mini, all with the new chip. However, they’re expected to be announced sometime in October or November.
Intriguingly, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently claimed that Apple won’t launch new MacBooks this year, which suggests that only desktops will be updated with M3 later this year, while M3 MacBooks won’t arrive until 2024.
