Just a day after news broke that “reliable sources” have come out to claim that Apple is launching the new MacBook Pro and new MacBook Air in the next few days, there is now a report with a specific date on when the public announcement is set to happen.
According to Recode, sources have now given the exact date on when the Cupertino giant is launching its new Mac devices. According to the tech news and reviews site, its sources have said that Apple is going to hold an event for its new computers on Oct. 27.
Shedding more light about the event, Recode reports Apple is holding its event near its Cupertino campus instead of holding it in San Francisco, where it launched its now quite popular smartphones, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Next week is bound to be quite busy for Apple, since apart from debuting its new MacBooks on Thursday, it is also going to have its earnings announcement two days prior, specifically on Oct. 25.
Although there isn’t confirmation from Apple which Mac devices it will be refreshing this time of the year, MacRumors claims that the entire Mac lineup is in need of new iterations when the tech giant holds its Mac event at the Town Hall conference center.
Since previous reports and rumors have put emphasis on why the new MacBook Pro is a complete redesign, it is expected that the powerhouse is going to headline the event. The 2016 MacBook Pro is said to come with a flatter keyboard, an OLED touch panel in exchange for the topmost physical function keys and Touch ID support embedded into its power button.
On Monday, AppleInsider reported that “reliable sources” have come out to claim that Apple is announcing the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air in the next few days and shipping the laptops before the month of October ends.
