Last Tuesday Apple announced the “Apple’s October 13 event” where it’s going to launch a few Apple products. The events are usually hosted in person at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. But this year, due to the pandemic of coronavirus, the event will be streamed online. And Apple has sent out the invitation to attend the event of October 13 where the invite says “Hi Speed.” Earlier this year in June, Apple had also held it’s WWDC event online.
The digital event’s tagline states “Hi-Speed”, which suggests the rumours of 5G phones to be true. Thus, you’ll finally know what lot Apple is bringing out this time, through the online stream that starts at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET.
But before the event takes place, let’s get into what to expect from them, and what else we might see at the event.
Apple’s October 13 event: Products expected to be announced
There’s a clue that Apple will announce the iPhone 12 on Oct. 13. And it’s expected that 4 models of iPhone 12 might be announced. That rumours suggest, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will make up Apple’s 2020 offering.
Apple announced two new Apple Watch models and two iPads in September, also online. While the all-digital events held by Apple this year were well received, we can expect the upcoming event to be something extra too. Moreover, the tagline “Hi-speed” points towards the 5G iPhone, which will have a great capability to connect to the faster wireless network. And maybe all 4 models of iPhone 12 will have 5G connectivity capability.
At the event, we might be able to see the following products as well.
At the WWDC event, Apple Announced that the upcoming Macs would function with its own custom-designed, ARM-derived silicon leaving Intel’s CPU’s behind. And Apple also confirmed that we’ll get to see those Macs by the year’s end. Besides, an Apple Silicon Mac at the MacBook, MacBook Air, or Mac mini level would likely outperform low-end Macs with Intel CPUs (based on iPad Pro benchmarks). That means Apple’s “Hi, Speed” tagline could also apply to a new Mac.
So, it was guessed that Apple might announce it’s Apple Silicon Mac at the October 13 event. But recently as reported by Bloomberg, the first Apple Silicon Macs will be announced at another Apple product launch event in November.
This could be a basically running joke now but, based on leaks, reliable reports, and even evidence buried in iOS, AirTags would be Apple’s competitor to Tile—little physical tags that you can track with location services like GPS. And there’s a possibility, October 13th event is the right time, Apple will finally announce AirTags.
The Airpods Studio, a few months ago was reported by Bloomberg, that these new headphones will be modular, allowing users to swap out the earpads, among other things. The Apple headphone’s ( possibly named Airpod Studio), it’s the probable price was also reported. Thus, they go perfectly along with the upcoming iPhone which is why Apple might announce them on the October 13th event. It’s just rumours and guesses so far.
HomePod mini would be another Apple product to be announced at the Apple’s October 13th event. While very little is known about it until now, reports suggest that Apple plans to introduce a smaller, cheaper HomePod to compete with lower-end speakers from Amazon and Google. These are all just guessed products for Apple to announce in the upcoming digital event.
What exactly will be announced on Apple’s October 13 might be revealed on the day and event itself. Apple’s event will overlap Amazon’s annual Prime Day sales event, which is being held on Oct. 13 and 14. You’ll be able to stream Apple’s event straight from the company’s website. Thus, how ready are you for the event?
