Waiting impatiently for Apple to release new Macs? Youll get them on October 27th

So Ive been hearing for weeks now that Apple has been waffling a bit on a date for its late-October Mac event. But, according to my sources, a date has been picked: Thursday, October 27th. So those looking for a new MacBook, hold your horses. And if youre a journo, flights are getting iffy but hotels are pretty cheap still.

I reached out to Apple for a comment on their secret, unannounced event but shockingly they did not reply.

Apple typically holds its events on a Tuesday or Wednesday. But it moved its earnings call earlier this month to Tuesday the 25th, so that was out. AndtheMicrosoft Surface All-in-One PC event, which takes place on October 26th, knocksWednesdayout. It almost didnt rule it out, I think, but that would have looked pretty silly on Apples part. Better they go the day after.

The event should hold news for those looking for new Macmodels. A bunch of stuff has been previously rumored and reported and the stuff that seems the most accurate is new 13 MacBook Air models with USB-C ports and a new MacBook Pro with a fancy digital display above the keyboardand Skylake Intel processors. New iMacs could appear, as well as a standalone 5k monitor to replace the Thunderbolt display. That device could have an internal GPU that enables MacBooks or older Macs to drive the much higher-resolution display.

Apples Macs, save the MacBook, have not been updated for over a year.
