New Macs are expected at Apple’s upcoming October 30 event — and the Eurasian Economic Competition database is the unlikely place that may have just confirmed that.
The online database has been updated with three new filings for desktop computers running macOS 10.14. These most likely refer to rumored upgrades of the iMac and Mac mini. Apple last updated the Mac mini four years ago on October 16, 2014.
An earlier filing this summer also revealed a new laptop model is supposedly on the way. None of this reveals any specific details about the upcoming devices. However, it does confirm (unless Apple is being weirdly unnecessarily sneaky) that something is on the way.
In a recent letter to investors, renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said he expects minor updates to Apple’s MacBook, iMac and Mac mini lines. He also predicts the arrival of a lower-cost Apple laptop that could replace the MacBook Air.
Updates for the Mac mini and a new Apple laptop have been rumored for some time. Prior to Apple’s September keynote, we noted that both were coming, but that fans shouldn’t expect to see them at this year’s iPhone event.
One month on, it seems we were right. Now, Apple might finally be ready to give Mac fans what they’ve been waiting for.
What are you hoping for from Apple in the way of Mac goodness at this month’s “There’s More in the Making” event? Let us know in the comments below.
