On Tuesday, October 13th, at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time (1:00 p.m. East Coast time), Apple will host its second live event in less than a month – this time almost certainly to announce new iPhones after the previous one Event had focused on iPads and the Apple Watch.
Ars Technica will blog the event live and publish key announcements in real time as usual. Return to this page when the event starts following the updates.
This event has the slogan "Hi, Speed" which can refer to any number of things: 5G modems in new phones, the faster A14 chip that was introduced last month, or even Apple Silicon in the first not -Intel Mac in many years.
In recent years, it has been common for Apple to announce new iPhones in September, but it seems the pandemic has affected the company's plans – making this fall event the big one. According to various reports, we expect four different iPhones – two successors for the iPhone 11 and successors each for the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. It is also possible that Apple will announce which Mac product line will make the big leap from Intel- CPUs will create ARM-based chips developed by Apple.
Other possible announcements include a new Apple TV 4K, location tags to compete with Tile, new AirPods branded headphones, a HomePod device, and final availability information for macOS Big Sur, Apple One, and Apple Fitness +.
