Another Apple event: Oct. 18 could unleash next-gen Silicon Macs

From CNET: Apple's already had a busy fall, releasing the iPad Mini, Apple Watch Series 7 and iPhone 13. Now, it's got "one more thing" to show us. The tech giant announced a new online-only event planned for Monday, Oct. 18, at 10 a.m. PT, 1 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. UK and 3 a.m. Tuesday AEST. Apple's event will be streamed live via the company's website. (Here's everything we know about the October Apple Unleashed event so far.)

Apple is expected to announced its next-generation Mac computers, powered by the company's own Apple Silicon chips. Over the past year, it's released new versions of its MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac Mini and iMac computers, powered by Apple's M1 chip. The company also released a surprise M1-powered iPad Pro last year.

The company's October event won't have the same draw as its September one, during which it announced the Apple Watch Series 7, new iPads and iPhone 13 lineup ahead of the holiday shopping season. Last year, Apple held three major product releases around the fall months, separating out announcements for its latest Apple Watches, iPads, iPhones and Mac computers. The releases helped propel Apple's sales and profit to their highest levels in the company's history, setting revenue records for the company's iPhones, iPads and Mac computers.
