Apple October Event details Apple’s October 18 event will be held at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET. This marks the second year in a row that Apple has held an October event completely virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The October 18 event will be live-streamed across Apple’s website, on the company’s YouTube channel, and via the Apple TV application on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV. We’ll have more details on how to watch when event day rolls around.

What to expect at the event The star of Apple’s October 18 event is expected to be the long-anticipated new M1X-powered MacBook Pros. Apple is rumored to be working on new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models that are powered by a so-called “M1X” processor.

Continuing with the Mac focus of the event, we also expect Apple to announce macOS Monterey’s official release date during Monday’s event. Monterey is currently in beta testing and is expected to be released to the public sooner rather than later.
