Gurman: No Apple Event Planned for Upcoming iPads and Macs

Apple does not plan to hold a traditional event to unveil new iPads and Macs, according to Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman. Instead, he said Apple plans to announce the products on its website with a “series of online videos and marketing campaigns.”

If this plan is accurate, we can expect the new products to be announced with press releases on the Apple Newsroom website.

Gurman expects Apple to announce the following products:Two new iPad Pro models with the M3 chip and OLED displays

A new Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro

Two new iPad Air models, including a first-ever 12.9-inch model

At least one new Apple Pencil

New 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air models with the M3 chipIn terms of timing, Gurman said that Apple is planning to release a “special version” of iOS 17.4 with support for the new hardware at the end of March, leading him to expect the devices to “arrive sometime in March or April.”

iOS 17.4 includes major changes to the App Store and more in the EU, as a result of the Digital Markets Act. Apple has until March 6 to comply with the Digital Markets Act, in order to avoid fines, so the common belief has been that iOS 17.4 will likely be released by then. It is unclear how the “special version” of iOS 17.4 will factor into these plans.
