Apple’s 22nd of October event is expected to cover the launch of OS X Mavericks and new iPads in the form of the fifth-gen iPad and the iPad mini. However recent reports have suggested that Apple could be doing more than that and could be announcing updated MacBook Pro laptops as well. Given that Apple had announced updates to its iMacs, MacBook Air, and even the Mac Pro, it is surprising that nothing was mentioned about the MacBook Pro which gives rise to the possibility that this event might be addressing just that.
Apple’s computer lineup has been updated to Intel Haswell chips, save for the MacBook Pro, so it is more than likely that at least one of the updates to the laptop would be the switch to Haswell. It is unclear as to what other specs we might be able to expect in the update, although we wouldn’t mind if the MacBook Air’s “all-day” battery life made an appearance in the updated MacBook Pro as well. Other possible specs include 802.11ac WiFi which was found on the new MacBook Airs, so that’s another feature worth looking forward to. In any case we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled so if a new MacBook Pro is what you’re after, check back with us on the 22nd of October for the details.
