These are the top five things we wanna see at Apple's October event.
Apple has not officially announced it's holding an October event at the time of this recording.
However it seems likely.
DavidGewirts at our sister sight ZDNET did some research and found that over the past 10 years, Apple's held a second fall event 60% of the time.
He also says that the second fall event has never had a new iPhone, but it always had a Mac announcement.
There's also been plenty of iPads, so let's talk about what we want to see from Apple this October.
At number five is AirPower.
I'm not asking Apple to introduce the wireless charger it announced in September of 2017 I'm not asking that Apple even introduce a replacement wireless charger.
At the minimum, it would be great if Apple would explain what on earth is going on with AirPower.
If it cannot be made the way Apple wanted it to work, just say so.
But that's essentially me asking Apple to say oops, we goofed.
And that's probably not gonna happen.
Coming at number four, our new AirPods The current model is almost two full years old.
This is technology.
We need new stuff all the time.
Even though it's been almost two years, the AirPods still look like you've shoved cigarettes into your ears.
Perhaps a Refined design would be nice.
Also, the old airpod used Bluetooth four, maybe a new model could include Bluetooth five, which has improved range.
A number of iPhones and the homepod use Bluetooth five, so why not have the airpods join them?
And number three is TV stuff, you know how we've been hearing about Apples TV show dreams, there's a new legal thriller starring Chris Evans.
There's some kind of deal with Oprah.
Another report has Steven Spielberg coming back for Amazing Stories as an executive producer.
Let's watch all of those things.
Will Apple keep its shows like Planet of the Apps and Carpool KARAOKE on the Apple Music app?
Will these new shows live in the TV app?
Maybe there's some kind of third option.
Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon are all chugging along with their services.
Disney's gearing up for 2019.
Where do Apple shows belong?
It'd be nice to know.
Number two: new iPad pros.
In March, Apple took away a big distinction from the iPad Pro Pencil compatibility.
The Pencil now works with the cheapest iPad, so maybe it's time to make the iPad Pro different again.
the latest iPhones ditched touch ID entirely, maybe it's time for face ID to hit Apple's tablets.
Surely the assembly could fit in the bezel.
Then there's that smart connector.
You might've forgotten about it, because there are not a ton of accessories for it.
You could connect a keyboard to it.
And the number one thing we wanna see at Apple's event is NEW MACS.
Computers are, right, so boring.
Computers are interesting and useful.
So many MACS are aging and aging.
Meanwhile, tons of other laptops and desktops are heading into the future.
Microsoft is releasing surfaces everywhere and we're still looking at the same old Macs.
The Macbook Air is virtually unchanged in appearance since its introduction.
How about the Macbook?
Super thin, nice design, still, one USB C port.
Hey, I'm now talking to Apple directly.
Check out your own site at Apple.com.
To the right of the Apple logo is a word, it says, Mac.
How about remembering you make Macs, and maybe they should be updated.
Is there anything you want to see from Apple?
Maybe a new Newton?
A Pippin two?
The return of the iPod stock?
Let us know.
