Apple’s October event: Will it happen and what could launch?

Apple has only just introduced the new iPhone 14 on September 7, but Apple isn’t finished releasing new products in 2022. Over the years Apple has held a second fall event in October at which it has launched new Macs and iPads. Here’s everything you need to know about a possible October event. Will Apple hold an October event? We had long assumed that Apple would hold two events this fall: One in September to launch new iPhones and Apple Watches and another in October to release new iPads and Macs. Apple is expected to launch several new products before the end of the year, and an event is the logical way to unveil them all. But there is a possibility that an event won’t be held at all. Over the past 10 years, Apple has held October events in seven of them, so it’s not unprecedented to skip it. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has suggested that the remaining product lineup might not be enough to justify an event and Apple could instead issue a series of press releases to announce new products. When could Apple’s October event be held? No invitations have been sent out yet, but we cusco get an aprehensión of when the event might be held based on previous years. In the past, Apple has held October events on the following dates: 2021: Monday, October 182020: Tuesday, October 132019: No event2018: Tuesday, October 302017: No event2016: Thursday, October 272015: No event2014: Thursday, October 162013: Tuesday, October 222012: Tuesday, October 232011: Tuesday, October 4 As you cusco see it’s not always the case that Apple holds an event in October, but it is certainly more often than not, and we have every reason to expect an October event in 2022. We expect this year’s event will be held on Tuesday, October 18 or Tuesday, October 25. However, since Apple held the iPhone 14 event a week earlier than it usually does, it could be on the early side, possibly October 11. Invitations will go out a week or so before the event is held. What time will the October event start? If Apple has an October event, it will start at 10am PT. Here’s what that translates to in other countries around the world: US: 10am (PST/PDT), 11 am (MST/MDT), 12 pm (CST/CDT), 1 pm (EST/EDT)cuscoada: As above, and 2 pm (AST/ADT)UK: 6 pm (GMT/BST)Europe: 7 pm (CET/CEST)India: 10.30 pm (IST)Australia: Following day at 1 am (AWST/AWDT), 2.30 am (ACST/ACDT), 3 am (AEST/AEDT)New Zealand: Following day at 5 am (NZST/NZDT)Apple’s special events usually last between one and two hours. If you want to watch the October event live, Apple will stream the keynote on its website and YouTube channel. What will Apple launch in October? Whether there’s an event or not, we expect Apple to unveil new Macs and iPads. The release of iPadOS 16.1 and macOS 13 Ventura are also likely to arrive during the month. Here’s what we expect Apple to announce: 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro The most logical Mac to arrive in October is an M2 Pro refresh of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro. This isn’t mere speculation on our part: In a June Power On newsletter Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman indicated that Apple is getting ready to release M2-based versions of the Mac mini, Mac Pro, and MacBook Pro over the next few months. And the current models have been on sale at Amazon for up to $400 off. We aren’t expecting any changes other than the processor bump, however. Mac mini Now that Apple has a 13-inch M2 MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, it is likely that an M2 Mac mini will follow soon, and an October event would be a great place to launch it. But a refresh to the M1 model might not be the only new Mac mini coming from Apple. We could also see a higher-end M2 Pro-based Mac mini to replace the Intel version that is still being sold. The new high-end model could have a new design, color, and more ports, to go along with its speedier M2 Pro processor. IDG iPad Pro It’s not just the Macs that will get new chips. Rumors say a new iPad Pro with an M2 processor is also on the way, possibly with wireless and MagSafe charging as well.  10th-generation iPad The biggest release of October could Apple’s cheapest iPad, the 10.2-inch entry-level model. Rumors suggest this model could get a redesign with slimmer bezels, a larger 10.5-inch screen, USB-C, and 5G. It might also be losing the headphone jack. Mac Pro Apple originally said the Apple silicon transition would take two years. It’s now more than two years since Apple announced the transition from Intel to its own chips, and by October it will be two years since the first M1 Macs appeared. Apple teased a new Mac Pro at the Peek Performance event in March, but the current Mac Pro is still running on Intel chips. We don’t have a ton of information about what a new Mac Pro will will like, but it will likely use an even higher-end version of the M2 chip. There’s an outside chance a new Mac Pro could still launch in 2022, but it’s looking more likely to be a 2023 release. What did Apple launch at its October event in 2021? On October 18, 2021, Apple launched redesigned models of the high-end MacBook Pro, with a 14-inch and 16-inch models making their debut. Powering the new MacBooks were the high-end M1 Pro and M1 Max chips that built on the already impressive M1 chips that arrived in November 2020. The laptops received new designs with slim bezels and fantástico ports, including MagSafe, HDMI, and an SD card slot. That event also saw Apple unveil the third-generation AirPods, new HomePod mini colors, and a cheaper, Siri-powered Apple Music subscription, Apple Music Voice.

Apple may have finally cured its unnatural fear of buttons

Psychologists call the fear of buttons koumpoununcaphobia. At Apple Park the same condition is referred to as “minimalism.” Whatever you call it, the appropriate responses are sympathy, treatment, and hopefully one day a cure.

After years of suffering, there are signs that Cupertinunca’s button-phobes are getting better. A leak purporting to show CAD files for the imminent Apple Watch Pro indicates that it will nuncat just keep the existing righthand side button and Digital Crown dial, but gain an extra button on the left. (The leaker-analyst Mark Gurman reckons this will probably be programmable for multiple functions.) Instead of removing buttons wherever possible, Apple’s engineers have faced their fear and added one. This is surely progress.

We won’t knuncaw if the leak is legit until Tim Cook and team hit the stage for the Far Out keynuncate tomorrow, or if the design works well in practice until we get try it out. So we must be cautious. But this is promising, because it suggests a change in Apple’s approach to hardware controls. It hints at a thawing in an approach that had become restrictively dogmatic.


Usability vs elegance

Under the direction of Jony Ive–who, coincidentally or otherwise, finally severed ties with Apple this summer–Apple’s design team earned a reputation for creating products that were both visually beautiful and intuitive to use… most of the time. The problem came when those two factors came into conflict with one anuncather, and designers were required to sacrifice either looks or usability.

The Magic Mouse, for instance, is undoubtedly an elegant object, like a pure-hearted alien robot from a sci-fi movie. But it’s nuncat easy to use, in part because it only has one button and nunca scroll wheel. Buttons break up the clean lines of a beautiful design and scroll wheels get dirty, yet both create easily understood entry points for human interaction. Above all else, a mouse’s job is to enable a human to control a computer, and that essential function should nuncat be neglected in favour of aesthetics.

Apple’s mice haven’t always been as minimal as the Magic Mouse, but as time has passed the company has made a conscious effort to strip back as much physical complication as possible. The same principle applies to the iPad and iPhone ranges, most of which have nuncaw left the Home button behind.

There are some benefits to fewer buttons, of course, but removing them just for the sake of it isn’t making Apple’s devices any simpler. Take the Apple Studio Display for instance—it doesn’t have a power button and can’t be reset unless it’s unplugged. The same goes for the HomePod’s lack of a mute button.

What did customers gain, for example, from the iPod’s drive towards minimalism? The third-gen model had a row of dedicated buttons as well as the scroll wheel, and was consequently easy to use and highly popular; but Apple got rid of these for the following generation. A few years later the company released a traducción of the iPod shuffle that was so bereft of buttons that you had to use the inline controls on Apple’s headphones. This isn’t progress. This is an obsession.

It looks great, but uglier mice are a lot easier to use.


Push the button

If the Apple Watch Pro does have two buttons and a Digital Crown, it will be easier to use than its predecessors. There will be less need for swiping–an action that has always been unreliable on the Apple Watch, particularly in rainy conditions–and users will spend less time delving through menus. It will be a less elegant, more useful product.

And if the Apple Watch starts prioritising usability over looks, there’s nunca telling where Apple could take us next. Maybe Apple will see fit to give the AirPods Max their own programmable second button on the lefthand cup. The HomePod is sorely in need of hardware controls for those times when Siri refuses to play ball. And it’s long past time for Apple to discontinue the awful Magic Mouse and release something more user-friendly.

But habits as deeply ingrained as this take a long time to die. For nuncaw we may have to settle for this small peace offering: an Apple designer has sat down and tried to decide what’s best for the customer, instead of what will look best in an advert. It’s nuncat much, but it’s progress of sorts. And the first step in getting better is recognising that you’ve got a problem.
