How to watch Apple’s October event live without leaving your couch



Apple’s Macs are getting an upgrade. On October 18, Apple is expected to announce its next generation of computers, powered by its rumors of the M1X Apple silicon chips. The new devices follow last year’s M1-powered Macs, which were not the first of Apple’s lineup powered by a chip manufactured by Intel. Instead, Apple uses those that are similar to the chips that power the iPhone, and so far has also received positive reviews for them.

Apple’s new Macs already have a well-considered battery life and can run iPhone and iPad apps. The new batch is expected to use Apple’s upgraded M1X chips, which is rumored to be faster and can go further to replace “Pro” performance computers that are still currently powered by Intel chips.

All in all, Apple’s event promises to be interesting. It’s the second major product to be unveiled that Apple has held this fall, and it’s being held online because of the ongoing pandemic.

While the Mac will be a key product at Apple’s event, and probably what most people focus their attention on, the company may have other devices to show off. These include new ones cheaper AirPods, which is rumored to be similar in design to the AirPods Pro, allowing users to change earplug tips. And a long shot opportunity is one smart headset, which Apple still has not discussed publicly.


Apple’s online-only event will be Monday at. 10.00 PT, 13.00 ET, 18.00 BST and 19 October at 4 AEDT. (Sorry, Australia.)


You will be able to stream the Apple event directly from the company website. We also follow here on CNET, where you can get all the details as well as our expert analysis while the event is taking place.

What we can expect

Apple’s digital events are fast, but they’re also full of information. And expect high production values. For the HomePod Mini announcement last year, Apple built a multi-family fork housing. And last month, it moved on Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow to dramatize the capabilities of the cameras on its iPhone 13 Pro.
