Apple EEC Filing Hints At New MacBook, iMac & Mac Mini Upgrades
Apple's 'There's more in the making' event is due in less than a week. Courtesy of leaks, we've got a good idea of what to expect from the Cupertino tech giant's second launch event in the span of fewer than two months. Apple cemented its new 'notch' theme on the iPhones this year, and its upcoming event will do the same for the iPad. However, now we've got a good reason to believe that the iPad isn't the only lineup that will receive an upgrade later this month. Head over below for more details.
Four New Macs Surfaces On The Eurasian Economic Commission For Certification As Apple Gears Up For The Company's October Launch Event
In addition to those for the iPad, we've also seen several rumors claim that not only will Apple launch a new entry-level MacBook this year, but that the company might also upgrade the Mac Mini lineup. However, given that leaks for new desktop Macs are scarce, we have been unable to reach any concrete conclusions for potential upgrades.
However, this changes today as Apple has filed a new application with the Eurasian Economic Commission, which is the executive body of the Eurasian Economic Union. A similar application with new iPhone models had surfaced before Apple's September launch event for the iPhone. Now, today's application mentions new models for both portable and desktop Macs.
The EEC has received Apple's request to approve one portable and three new desktop Macs. This suggests that Apple will upgrade the iMac, Mac Mini and launch a new MacBook later this month. After rumors for a 2018 iPad Pro refresh, today's news falls in line with Apple's strategy of introducing upgrades across its product portfolio. The company is looking to keep revenues stable as it develops and experiments with new methods of service monetization.
Apple's upcoming event for the iPad and Macs will take place around the same time that its annual earnings report is due. The Cupertino based tech giant made some high forward guidance last quarter, and it's time to see whether they'll materialize. Thoughts?
