Another possibility is a new 13-inch MacBook Pro, likely with an option that utilizes Apple’s latest processor, the M2 chip. There’s also a possible successor to the Mac Mini, which last saw an update in 2020. This higher-end model could have options fitted with Apple’s M2, M1 Pro, and M1 Max chips. Rumors abound of a 27-inch iMac with M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, but those desktop PCs are more likely to be announced later this year.
Apple could also announce a release date for iOS 15.4, the latest version of the company’s mobile operating system. It’s currently in beta, but when released it will bring an array of new features to the iPhone.
How to Watch
You can also watch it in the Apple TV app. Now that Apple has its own streaming service, it also has a dedicated video app on mobile devices, Apple TV boxes, Roku boxes, most streaming sticks, and in some smart TVs. You can open that app and find the option to stream today’s event whether you subscribe to the monthly Apple TV+ streaming service or not.
We’d recommend launching the stream on your television, using either your YouTube app or the Apple TV app; watching virtual events still isn’t quite as exciting as attending in-person ones, but watching on a larger screen at least makes it feel like an event. Besides, if you watch it on your television, that frees up your laptop for arguing about the new machines with your Discord buddies in the metaverse.
Expect Apple’s presentation to last anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes. The company has a tendency to spring “one more thing” on us at the end of its events, so there’s always plenty of room for surprises. And, of course, once the event ends, come back to WIRED.com. We’ll be rounding up the most significant news and offering our analysis of the event.
