“As expected, Apple just sent out invites for an event in Cupertino next week on October 27th,” Nilay Patel reports for The Verge.

“The tagline on the invite, ‘hello again,’ is a clear reference to the Mac, which was originally introduced with the word ‘hello'” in 1984,” Patel reports. “The event will be streamed live starting at 10AM PT / 1PM ET.”

“The rumors suggest the new MacBook Pro will have an OLED touch control bar above the keyboard that will dynamically display different function keys,” Patel reports. ” There are also reports that Apple will move to an all-USB-C port arrangement, dropping classic USB and its own MagSafe power connector in favor of the simple all-in-one port it uses on the smaller 12-inch MacBook.”

MacDailyNews Note: The event will be streamed live by Apple here.

MacDailyNews Take: Shut up. Just shut up!

You had us at hello… you had us at hello.

The use of “hello” by Apple (previously used to introduce the original Mac, the original iMac, and the iPhone) is significant and signals that this is more than a typical Mac event.
