Apple may have ‘One More Thing…’ to announce before year’s end

“Steve Jobs, the late co-founder of Apple, Inc. and its former CEO, was famous for ending his keynote addresses that unveiled the tech giant’s newest products with ‘one more thing…’ which usually included an additional announcement to surprise the audience and this just could be the case with Apple reportedly rumored to be planning one last special event before the end of the year to unveil a slew of new Mac related products,” MacPrices reports.

“An iDrop News article written by Mike Peterson on October 1 detailed this additional special event which may possibly be held sometime during this month and will finally focus on its line of computer hardware to which major product updates have been next to absent so far this year, with the sole exception the release of two updated MacBook Pro models earlier in June,” MacPrices reports. “Missing from Peterson’s predictions is the iMac Pro and the Mac Pro, the two desktop computers designed for professional Mac users.”

MacPrices reports, “It’s looking like — if the second Apple special event even happens — that product announcements just may come to fruition next week if not the end of the month.

    1. How embarrassing would it be to use the moniker “one more thing..” to announce that the company was finally updating product lines that are as old as the company is. To borrow Steve’s famous line…it better be something new, and different, and exceptionally good.

  1. In the pre-Cook era I would’ve been most interested in the Mac mini. Now I occasionally wonder if it ever gets updated what will be removed from it and how obscene its RAM and SSD prices will be. Or something like that; I can’t be bothered getting the details precise for a post on a forum that most posters will probably disagree with anyway. Yawn…

    1. In the Post-Cook era, I’m afraid that I’m pretty much only interested in the Mac mini … because if the Mac Pro ships, by the time that it is properly configured, it will be north of $8K.

      As such, I’ll pick up an overpriced mini for … well, Tim will probably rationalize it to cost $ 2K.

      That minimal investment will keep my OS X legacy stuff going, at which point I’ll then spend $5K for a Windows PC tower for the “Real Workflow” … and still have money left over in my own pocket, as well as a system that’s more maintainable than whatever Apple’s going to be offering. 🙁

    2. Got to say, we have one of the earlier Mac minis, fully loaded with RAM and SSD, and it’s a little beast! It’s been working hard and never quits… Has outlasted the iMacs. And the second generation Cinema Display it’s driving is holding up just fine too. Somethings werejust built to last. Let’s see if Apple can take it up a notch without losing that robust character.

    1. No way they’ll announce a new Mac Pro this year. They explicitly said 2019, which means they could reveal it in 12+ months for limited release in late December next year.

      I’m hoping for a Macbook Air update, but expect to be disappointed by ports/price so will probably go with a 2015 Macbook Pro with no compromises (a 5th gen i5 with 16GB of RAM is more than enough).

      1. Well if true, sad to say I have researched both Hackintosh and building a Pro PC for a lot less and expandable, as well. I’m not waiting six years. Eff you, Apple…

          1. That depends on Apple, fanboy. You say the same thing to me, how many times now? Never assume and don’t make the mistake buying a Pro PC is going to make me ditch my current collection of working Apple computers or leave MDN…

            1. Why wouldn’t you ditch them if they are so profoundly crappy and you have something better? That’s profoundly weird… mentally ill, I think.

    2. No way they’ll announce a new Mac Pro this year. They explicitly said 2019, which means they could reveal it in 12+ months for limited release in late December next year. I’m hoping for a Macbook Air update, but expect to be disappointed by ports/price so will probably go with a 2015 Macbook Pro with no compromises (a 5th gen i5 with 16GB of RAM is more than enough).
