9to5Mac has been saying for a while that Apple’s Hey Siri occasion today will be a product blitz of announcements, with a minimum of three significant new products set to be displayed: the brand-new iPhone 6S, the brand-new larger iPad Pro and a revamped Apple TELEVISION with a brand-new remote. There’s also most likely to be a brand-new iPad mini and some updates for Apple Watch– you can read it all in our roundup.
Some people were confused about why Apple is stuffing numerous statements into one occasion. Having actually called a single event “not rational” earlier in the day, Daring Fireball’s John Gruber now agrees with our prior reports: breaking tradition, there will not be an October occasion this year.
After declaring a single occasion would be “inexplicable” earlier in the day, Gruber followed up with a small piece on his blog last night, stating that sources (“birdies”) claim Apple will only be holding one event in the fall this year, the occasion today.
Great deal of little birdies out tonight in San Francisco. The agreement is that there’s just going to be one Apple occasion this fall, and it’s tomorrow. So if there’s an iPad Pro, it’s coming tomorrow, no matter just how much or how little sense that makes.
This indicates that Apple will certainly break tradition of the last a number of years and not have another event in 2015 after today. Although it isn’t clear why Apple has made this choice to stuff everything into one event, specifically when some product statements are not set to be released till October, it does give some reason.
There’s another ramification: normally the October event displays iPads and Macs. With iPads including today, it appears like brand-new Macs may not have an occasion at all. Instead, these items will likely appear on Apple’s online store one day accompanied by a news release announcing the new items.
The very same obtains the software application side– the brand-new release of Mac OS X is typically revealed at the October event. Whilst we still believe El Capitan will certainly be released next month, Gruber’s sources suggest it will occur with a lot less fanfare than previous years.
