Apple to Hold Media Event on December 2 'Honoring Favorite Apps and Games of 2019'

Apple today send out invites for a surprise media event that's set to be held on Monday, December 2 in New York City, at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

According to the media invitations, Apple will be honoring its "favorite apps and games of 2019." There is no word on just what that means, and as Apple has never held a similar event, we don't know what to expect. Apple does, however, always share its year-end favorite apps and games, during the first few days of December, so it sounds like this year, the content will be unveiled during a full event and awards ceremony.

Apple's best of the year content offerings highlight games, music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and more, with last year's announcement focusing on content that shaped entertainment and culture around the world.

It's not clear if any hardware will be introduced at the event, but it seems unlikely given the clear wording of the media invites. We're still expecting Apple to release the Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR in December, so there could be a mention of an official launch date, but beyond that, no more hardware refreshes are rumored for this year.

So weird that the text at the bottom is in Myriad Pro instead of San Francisco. Is it even legit? So weird that they would overlook something like that

It's all inline with their shift from hardware focused company to service focused. It's all about the content on their devices, and what you can do, not the lastest hardware gizmo.
I can't say I expected this, but it does make sense.

So let’s see here.
No event for release of the new AirPods or the new MacBook, but oh!
We better have an event for the App Store.

I'm expecting new iPads, iPhones and a 5k Apple TV built into a 65" display for $20,000.
Long shot - a new truly professional LED MacBook Pro starting at 64GB RAM and 2TB SSD.
