Jason Snell, writing in Six Colors:
This year, though, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman is reporting that new Macs aren’t on the agenda, and are “currently expected to be announced at a later date.”
Mac people are getting restless. With the exception of a speed-bump update to the MacBook in the spring, 2016 has been a desert. And now, with a major Apple event on the horizon, is it true that new Mac hardware may still not be on the agenda?
As John Gruber points out, it’s become clear that Apple isn’t interested in holding two events in the fall. That means, if Apple is announcing new Macs before the end of the year, they’ll be doing so with a press release or private press briefings.
And of course, there’s always the possibility that Apple decides to change course or that Gurman’s sources are wrong. Granted, that’s not very likely, Gurman probably has the best track record in the business. But you can’t entirely rule out the idea that Apple may just announce new Macs on stage at their September 7 event.
