Latest 'Scary Fast' leaks double down on M3 iMac and MacBook Pro launches

Apple's current 24-inch iMac

Predictions of what Apple will launch at its "Scary Fast" event are still varying wildly, but one source claims to be certain of the complete list.

Most signs do point to Apple releasing Macs with its M3 processor at the October 30 event, even though some points don't add up. Nonetheless, Bloomberg writer Mark Gurman is now adamant that despite his own previous predictions, Apple is set to launch:

  • M3 24-inch iMac
  • Two MacBook Pro models, probably with M3 Pro and M3 Max processors
  • Trackpad, mouse and keyboard updates with USB-C connectors

At the same time, Gurman says that Apple is unlikely to launch a refreshed 13-inch MacBook Pro at the event.

He's also saying that other than the move to USB-C for peripherals, there won't be any visible design changes to the Macs that are launched. There isn't expected to be any AirPods, or iPads updates either.

Separately, there were previous rumors about Apple-made USB-C cables in different colors, and it was assumed they were for the iPhone. They may now turn out to be for the iMac instead.

There has been no mention of the 30-inch iMac that was previously rumored to be coming, if not necessarily in time for this event. There's also been no discussion lately of an M3 Mac mini, although that was one of the earliest Macs to get the M1 and M2 processors.

Apple's "Scary Fast" event is on October 30, 2023, and will be streamed from 5:00 PM PT, 8:00 PM ET.
