Apple is rumored to ship its newest M3 Mac models in early November, nine days after its upcoming “Scary Fast” event.
On Monday, Apple announced that it would be holding an uncharacteristically late Apple Event on Monday, October 30, at 5:00 PM PT. The event, titled “Scary Fast,” likely will see the launch of new M3 Mac models.
According to an unconfirmable report on Wednesday MacRumors, suggests that new Mac models could launch on Wednesday, November 8 — just over a week after the “Scary Fast” event. While unusual, this kind of launch is not unprecedented, either. As the report points out, Apple had a similar rollout five years ago.
While he’d initially believed hardware releases were over after the iPhone event, Ming-Chi Kuo also believes the event will focus on the newest MacBook Pro models. However, Kuo warns that if there are new MacBook Pro models, the “tight supply will last into 1Q24 unless demand weakens.”
On Wednesday, an unverifiable source shared what they claim is a photo of the box for a new, as yet unannounced MacBook Pro.
