We will be providing coverage of Apple's upcoming 'Scary Fast' special event right here, beginning October 30, 2023 at 5:00pm PT / 8:00pm ET.

The event will be focused on Mac, with Apple expected to unveil new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, as well as a new iMac. Given the 'Scary Fast' event name, it's possible we could see new M3, M3 Pro, and M3 Max chips announced.

Allegedly, there have been two versions of the M3 Pro in testing for the MacBook Pro. One has 12 main processor cores (6 high performance, 6 high efficiency) and 18 graphics cores. The other has 14 main processor cores (10 high performance, 4 high efficiency) and 30 graphics cores. Similarly, there are multiple M3 Max chips in testing including a top-end version with 16 main cores (12 high performance, 4 high efficiency) and 40 graphics cores. It's also rumored that Apple could introduce new configurations that have 24GB and 48GB of RAM.


For the iMac, the design is expected to stay the same but there could be a revamped stand. Codenamed J433 and J434, the desktop may feature an M3 chip with 8 main cores (4 high performance, 4 high efficiency) and 10 graphics cores.

Finally, Apple could introduce updated Mac accessories with USB-C support, including the Magic Mouse, Magic Trackpad, and Magic Keyboard.
