Last month, when writing about Apple’s Fall 2013 Product Announcement, I’d guessed at a few announcements that they didn’t end up making. Today, Apple announced all of those things and more.
OS X Mavericks OS X 10.9 ”Mavericks”. Available today. Free (down from $19.99 last year).
MacBook Air Lighter and faster than the last model. Faster 802.11ac wireless networking, Bluetooth 4.0 and Thunderbolt 2. Available today. Starting at $999.
MacBook Pro with Retina Display Lighter and faster than the last model.
Apple’s fall product announcement begins at 10am PST; 1pm EST.
My guesses? Definitely: Next-gen iPhone 5S, iOS 7, OS X Mavericks, iTunes 11 (with iTunes Radio), updated MacBook Pro.
Maybe: New iPads (though I’d bet on spring instead), lower unsubsidized-cost iPhone for other (non-American) countries, updated iMac, updated Thunderbolt 2 display (with USB 3.0).
Not a chance: An HDTV, a wrist-watch, a pull-string-to-talk Steve Jobs doll.
How’d I do? How good were my predictions? Well, this event was a little shorter than I was expecting and they only covered iPhone-related stuff.
