Apple: No New Products Before Holidays
Apple has issued a statement to Macworld clarifying that there are no plans for any new products before the holiday season.
"Our holiday line-up is set," Apple spokesman Bill Evans told Macworld.
This announcement squashes circulating rumors that the iMac and Mac mini are scheduled for imminent updates.
An iMac update had initially been seen as a surprising possibility, as it was one of the more recently updated Apple products. Still, the iMac generally shares the same internal hardware as Apple's notebooks, making it natural to believe that they might see similar upgrades. The fate of the Mac mini remains unknown, as it has not been updated since August 2007.
The next major Apple event is Macworld San Francisco which will be held in early January 2009.
