Apple Event Scheduled for October 30, Grab a Cool Spooky Mac Wallpaper to Match
Apple has announced a special event for the evening of October 30, titled “Scary Fast”. The event is widely assumed to be focused on the Mac, due to the event webpage having an Apple logo that morphs into the Finder icon, perhaps with refreshed updates to the iMac and MacBook line.
Obviously the name “Scary Fast” and the dark Apple logo and Finder iconography are plays on the season, and October 31 being Halloween.
October 30 is a Monday, which is a bit unusual for an Apple event, but the more curious aspect of the “Scary Fast” event scheduling is that it’s being held at 5PM PDT, rather than the typical morning timeline.
The rumor mill is churning out a variety of theories about what is to come on October 30, with most concluding that updates to the iMac lineup and perhaps the MacBook lineup are most likely. There’s also some speculation that an M3 chip will be announced, which could be a little awkward given that Apple announced new M2 Macs just a few months ago at the beginning of summer.
Stay tuned for next Monday, where we’ll all find out what is unveiled.
