Mark Your Calendars Merged
Key dates to remember:

  • Monday, October 24: Apple confirmed that iOS 16.1, iPadOS 16.1, and macOS Ventura will be released on October 24, and it's very likely that tvOS 16.1 and watchOS 9.1 will also be released on the same day. iOS 16.1 includes at least eight new features, while iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura feature Stage Manager and more. The updates should be available around 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time.
  • Tuesday, October 25: Apple's software engineering chief Craig Federighi and marketing chief Greg Joswiak are set to speak with tech columnist Joanna Stern at the WSJ Tech Live event on October 25 starting around 7:35 p.m. Pacific Time. It's likely that Federighi and Joswiak will discuss Apple's latest software releases and hopefully address the controversy surrounding Stage Manager.
  • Wednesday, October 26: The new iPad Pro models with the M2 chip and the redesigned 10th-generation iPad will begin arriving to customers and become available for purchase at Apple Stores and select resellers on October 26.
  • Thursday, October 27: Apple will announce its earnings results for the fourth quarter of its 2022 fiscal year on October 27 at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time. Apple CEO Tim Cook and Apple CFO Luca Maestri will discuss the results on a conference call starting at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time on the same day.
  • Friday, November 4: The new Apple TV 4K with the A15 Bionic chip, HDR10+ support, and more will begin arriving to customers and become available for purchase at Apple Stores and select resellers on November 4.

In addition, the first reviews of the new iPads will likely be shared this week.

Probably best to stay far away from a new OS with the way Apple has been this year and most of us have already forgotten “new” hardware was even announced…next

This upcoming week is going to be the best week ever. Ready for the showdown! ?️
One question and one comment please.
What “showdown” are you referencing? Is there some type of duel, say pistols and ten paces, that Apple customers should be aware of? OK, that’s two questions, my bad.
”Best week ever”. Gotta say, with all that’s been accomplished historically, I‘m gonna call BS on that one.

Still not convinced this account isn’t a bot. Can’t imagine a human typing this.
