The highly anticipated Apple October event isn’t likely to happen at all. This piece of information comes from a noted Apple expert. Past leaks claim Apple is prepping to host an October event to unveil a myriad of new products. However, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman thinks otherwise.
According to Gurman, the American tech giant isn’t planning to host a launch event for the new iPad or MacBook next month. Instead, Apple could quitely launch these products through a press release. The company is reportedly testing 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with Apple M2 Pro and M2 Max chips.
New iPad Pro models could also be in the offing. Apple is reportedly working on a pocket-friendly iPad. Also, the Cupertino-based firm is gearing up to launch an iPad Pro with an Apple M2 chip. Notably, these devices are likely to see the light of the day in October.

Apple October Event Canceled
Apple is more likely to host a soft launch for its new MacBook Pro models. So, the rumored Apple October event won’t be happening af all. Furthermore, Apple will reportedly launch the rest of the 2022 products through press releases, according to Gurman (via MacRumors). Alternatively, the company could unveil these products via briefings with some members of the press.
So, it is safe to assume that the September event was Apple’s last event of 2022. Also, the rest of the portfolio will be refreshed next month. To recap, Apple unveiled the iPhone 14 series and new Apple Watch models at its Far Out event last month. Moreover, the AirPods Pro 2 went official at the event.
The company also announced new MacBook Air and Pro models with the M2 chip at the Far Out event. Now, the Mac mini with the new M2 chip could make its debut next month. Likewise, the iPad Pro series could get the M2 chip in October. Furthermore, the company could announce an A14 Bionic chip-backed entry-level iPad. The iPad Pro models will reportedly sport 11 and 12.9-inch displays.
