Apple Files New Macs in Regulatory Database Ahead of Rumored Spring Event

Apple has filed three new unreleased Mac computers in the Eurasian Economic Database ahead of when the company is expected to hold a rumored Spring event on or around March 8, as first spotted by Consomac.

The three new Macs, listed with model numbers A2615, A2686, and A2681, are all listed as running macOS Monterey, but no other details including the specific model of the computers are provided. Apple typically files new products in the database, as required by law, near a product launch. Last month, the company filed what is likely to be the upcoming iPhone SE and the next-generation iPad Air.

Apple is working on several new Mac computers to be released this year, and Bloomberg's Mark Gurman has suggested the rumored Spring event will include the launch of "at least one" new Mac. Apple is working on a larger iMac with Apple silicon to replace the Intel-based 27-inch ‌iMac‌ currently in the lineup. A new completely redesigned MacBook Air is also in the works, as is a new Mac mini.

Well, there actually is some small info on the computers.
One of them (A2681) is said to be a "portable personal computer" (read "laptop"), and other two are just "personal computers" (read "desktop").

Well A24** is used on all the M1* devices. Does this suggest M2?

It should be noted this does not indicate time frame. In the past sometimes the actual release didn’t happen until 6 months after the registration or even later.

I'm thinking a new 14" base model MacBook Pro with M2 and two new Mac mini models. Pretty keen on an M2 MacBook Air though!

Here’s hoping the front-facing color tone isn’t pastel like it was on the M1 iMacs… It really made me sad that I couldn’t see those vibrant primary colors, and had to settle for what felt like a variant of beige. If it were a fruit, I wouldn’t eat it. The first iMacs didn’t make that mistake. Go big or go home!

At 1.26 inches in diameter, AirTags are able to fit easily on a dog's collar, but that size also makes the tracking devices small enough to swallow, at least for a medium to large-sized dog, and ...
