A couple of weeks back it was rumored that Apple is going to conduct an event on October 16th to show off some new products. The company has since confirmed this event but hasn’t told us yet what products to expect, obviously we’ll only get to see them once the event gets underway. The much rumored Retina MacBook Air was one of the products many believed would be shown off on October 16th but a new report suggests that while this notebook may be in the pipeline, its not going to be announced this week.

John Paczkowski of Re/code has heard from sources familiar with Apple’s plans that the Retina MacBook Air is not on the agenda at Thursday’s event. Instead the spotlight will squarely be on the next generation iPads, a new iMac with a significantly high resolution display and the public release of OS X Yosemite, the new desktop software unveiled at Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this year.

This particular scribe has been right about Apple’s plans in the past, most recently about the iPhone 6 event on September 9th, so there’s little reason to doubt this report unless there’s some indication from Apple that the Retina MacBook Air is still on the cards for this event, which seems unlikely.

While the MacBook Air lineup has been refreshed it is yet to receive the coveted Retina display that’s already made its way to the Pro lineup. Looks like Apple has pushed the release beyond 2014 at the very least.
