Gurman: Apple event this October remains unlikely, no Touch ID for iPhone 15


What to Expect from an Apple Event in October: iPad Pros, M2 Macs and More

Apple is developing new iPad Pro, Mac, and Apple TV models, and at least some of those products will be released in October, according to Apple Bloombergis Mark Gurman. However, Gurman continues to believe that Apple is unlikely to hold an event this month.

In the latest edition of his A Newsletter Gurman said “last month’s big iPhone 14 reveal was probably the right thing for Apple in 2022 in terms of key presentations,” and suggested that all iPad, Mac, and Apple TV product launches be accompanied by press releases, media briefings, and updates announced would go to Apple’s online store.

Last week, Gurman reported that new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro, 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro and Mac mini models with M2-series chips are “very likely ‘ will be launched before the end of 2022. He also said an updated Apple TV with an A14 chip and more 4GB of RAM is “closer and could potentially launch later this year.”

Gurman also claimed that Apple has been testing under-screen Touch ID for the past few years, but he doesn’t expect Touch ID to return for the iPhone 15 or other flagship models any time soon. Gurman can envision a new iPhone SE with a Touch ID power button on the side, but he hasn’t “heard anything that’s actually in the pipeline.”

Another tidbit mentioned in Gurman’s newsletter is that Apple appears to have been testing the sleep-tracking feature for the HomePod – it’s unclear which model – but he doesn’t expect that feature to be available any time soon, if at all. is made available to the public.
