In keeping with tradition, Apple announced that it will be live streaming its October 16 event on the tech giant’s site. Apple is expected to debut the 27-inch iMac with Retina Display at this upcoming showcase, along with the iPad Air 2, and iPad Mini 3.

As is typically the case, you’ll need to run Safari 5.1.10 or later on OS X 10.6.8 or newer in order to watch the show on your Mac. If you’ll be watching on an iPad or iPhone, you’ll need to do so using Safari on iOS 6 or later.

Those who plan to tune in using an Apple TV will need a second or third-generation version of the box running version 6.2 of its system software, or later.

Though a 12-inch MacBook Air with Retina has been rumored for quite some time, it’s unclear whether we’ll get a look at it during this event. One report recently claimed that the laptop has entered a limited state of production as of this month, while a separate Wall Street Journal report stated that it won’t enter production until sometime in December.

As for the Retina iMacs rumored to appear at this event, they may also get a significant upgrade in the graphic processing department. Apple’s current lineup of iMacs features Nvidia’s 700M line of GeForce GPUs. Apple didn’t bother to outfit them with Nvidia’s 800M series, which it launched earlier this year.

We could also get a look at a new Mac Mini, along with some more information about the latest operating system or Mac, OS X Yosemite.

Nvidia recently launched the 980M and 970M chips, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see one or both in new iMacs at Apple’s event next week.

Every product Apple skipped at its iPhone 14 event today

Apple's annual iPhone event is over, and it resulted in some significant announcements, including the entire line of iPhone 14 devices, the new Apple Watch Ultra, and the second-gen AirPods Pro.

Outside the interesting new features of the iPhone 14 Pro, the iPhone 14 event was fairly low on surprises. That may have left some people disappointed, especially if they were hoping for a specific product to get announced. But don't worry, there's still an Apple event rumored for later this year that could include many of the product left on the cutting-room floor.

This resulted in severe throttling upon hitting high temperatures, highlighting that Apple's design choices for the laptop might not be ideal in terms of cooling. But is this really a big deal for the intended userbase of the new MacBook Pro?
