Apple memo suggests new hardware release coming on Dec. 8th

Surprise, surprise, surprise! Apple just might have one more hardware product announcement for us this year. In an internal memo this week, obtained by MacRumors “from a reliable source,” Apple service providers were informed of AppleCare-related changes planned for Tuesday, December 8th at approximately 5:30 a.m. Pacific Time.

Specifically, Apple has advised technicians to prepare for new product SKUs, new/updated product descriptions, and new/updated product pricing, according to the memo.

Apple has issued nearly identical memos ahead of several previous product announcements.

While it is unlikely that Apple will be hosting another event this year, 5:30 a.m. Pacific Time has been a common time for Apple to issue press releases introducing new products, such as a new 13-inch MacBook Pro in May 2020, the 16-inch MacBook Pro in November 2019, and second-generation AirPods in March 2019.

Last month, cryptic-yet-reliable Twitter user “L0vetodream” tweeted that there will be a “Christmas surprise from Apple,” but it remains unclear which product(s) might be announced next Tuesday, if any.

MacDailyNews Take: New Apple hardware? AirTags, AirPods Studio headphones, and/or an updated Apple TV?

In the middle of last month, oft-reliable leaker @L0vetodream tweeted, “You’ll get a Christmas surprise from Apple(PS:Winter exclusive、good for winter.” This immediately made us think of earmuffs (AirPods Studio headphones).


    1. I can tell you are CLUELESS when it comes to Mac Pros. News Flash: Trashcan Mac Pro is DEAD! Then again, you have a history of posting false information and opinions particularly politics. Facts are facts and you cannot change them. You should remember that.

      The Trashcan replacement Mac Pro was introduced December 10, 2019 along with the Apple Pro Display XDR.

      Now that the opinionated noise is out of the way, certainly to upgrade the latest Mac Pro awesome machine with M1 chips Jackie Gleason said it best.

      To the moon Alice!…

        1. Excellent point Tom, thanks.

          I would not give him one penny of rotting corn feed, simply corrected the record.

          Possibly a bit touchy in this area as a Mac Pro since the late 1980s…

      1. Your opinion is totally irrelevant. Particularly when you don;’t back it up with logical arguments. Go back to the basement junior and come out when you can compete evenly with the big boys…
