Apple isn’t done until 2021, and this year’s October may be as big as September.
September was an extremely busy month for Apple and Apple Watch, as it typically is. It’s also the month in which the brand-new iPhones are announced as well as the most recent version of iOS as well as the new Apple Watch.
The September of this year was no exception in that it brought Apple releasing the iPhone 13 series, Apple Watch Series 7, and iOS 15. However, Apple also launched a brand-new iPad as well as an iPad mini. In the past, as the company is focusing on services, there were a few significant releases in the area as well as some much-anticipated Apple TV+ shows.
However, Apple isn’t done yet. There’s no official release of macOS 12 Monterey, there are numerous Apple TV+ shows and Apple Arcade games in the works, and we anticipate more new hardware. Particularly, the reports suggest that we can expect the release of new MacBook Pros and Air Pods. It could even be the possibility of a new Mac mini.
Here’s everything we can talk about coming in October, as well as the products we’ve heard of that, could be launched this month.
Apple Watch Series 7
Although Apple has already released its Apple Watch Series 7 it didn’t provide a shipping date, and you’re not able to even pre-order it. We’re not sure when it will be available however, rumors suggest the possibility that Apple will reveal the date for preorders in early October and a shipping date sometime in the middle of October. Even if the claims are not true, however, we believe it will be available for preorder in the month of October.
New products with a lot of rumor
We were hoping that the September event would bring us to brand new iPhones, Apple Watch, and AirPods. However, as if to show how the gossip mill may not know the same things they do, Apple threw us for an entire loop by introducing new iPads and Apple Watches, while the new AirPods were not discovered. We’re now anticipating another Apple event possibly in the month of October or perhaps November and announcing some new MacBook Pro models and maybe those brand new AirPods also.
AirPods 3. It’s been reported that the next generation of AirPods will be on display at the “next Apple event” so many times. According to the latest rumor, they’re actually being made and are scheduled to launch in the coming year, however, Apple hasn’t yet announced them. Is October the month to get them? At the moment, it’s anybody’s guess. We’ve been burned many times before. This next-generation AirPods Rumor roundup includes all the information.
MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch models: There are rumors of the new MacBook Pro models in the works that will feature higher-powered Apple Silicon chips and drastic features and design changes. We believe they’ll be available in November, however, the event at which Apple will announce them may be in October. Preorders are expected in the latter half of October and products are available for purchase within the first week of November.
Mac mini: Mac minis with HTML0 are expected to be equipped with a brand new, high-performance chip, which we believe is likely to be named the M1X. There is talk of the redesigned Mac mini that will use identical chips. We estimate it to have 50/50 odds of being revealed along with the brand updated MacBook Pros.
Software updates and apps
Apple usually releases the majority of its new Operating system upgrades in the month of September. We aren’t sure if this year will be any different.
iOS 15.1 as well iPadOS 15.1
Although iOS 15 has been released it’s not equipped with every feature that was promised in June. There’s a beta version of iOS 15.1 already, that includes SharePlay and vaccine information in Wallet. We’re expecting that it will be released to the public by the end of October. The iOS 15.2 beta test will be launched shortly thereafter. We might even get iOS 15.2 in October. There are many new Emojis being added to iOS 15. And we anticipate it to be at the very least iOS 15.2 prior to that.
macOS 12 Monterey
In the past, Apple released macOS 11 Big Sur on November 12 shortly after its Mac-centric event. But, in 2020, it was a delayed year for COVID… macOS 12 Monterey is likely to follow the same pattern but the release date could occur a bit earlier. Also, instead of a Mac-centric event and a macOS release at the beginning of November might receive both at the end of October, mid-to-late.
Apple has just added Pilates and guided meditation on Fitness+ at the end of September, however, it is continuing to work on its pledge to launch the service to 15 countries at the close in the calendar year. The new countries include Austria, Brazil, Colombia, France, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Arab Emirates, and certain of them could receive access in October, however, we believe that the majority of them will be later.
The brand-new Group Workouts feature that lets up to 32 people participate in the same exercise simultaneously online is dependent on SharePlay. Because SharePlay is expected to launch in iOS 15.1 on October 1st (and likely TVOS 15.1 too) It could be a sign of the introduction of this feature in Fitness+.
The September of September was a big month, and October is full of great stuff as well. Look throughout our list of forthcoming AppleTVand series, shows, and films to see what’s in the near future.
