Gurman Says No Mac Announcements Next Week

Mark Gurman and Jungah Lee, reporting for Bloomberg:

Apple is holding an event on Sept. 7 in San Francisco. The keynote will focus on upgraded versions of the iPhone, a new Apple Watch with GPS tracking and new health features, and an iOS 10 software update for iPhones and iPads, according to people familiar with the matter. The new Macs are currently expected to be announced at a later date, the people said.

I’m hearing rumblings that review units will be very limited this year.

While the new iPad features aren’t expected until next year, Apple is planning to release some of the new Mac products as soon as October, according to the people. The updated line includes tweaked MacBook Air devices with multi-functional USB-C port technology and iMacs with an option for new graphics chips from Advanced Micro Devices Inc.

An update to the MacBook Air of any sort is a bit of a surprise to me. I really thought the Air was sunsetted.
