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.

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.
