Have you ever wondered why we rely on Apple rumors instead of using divination methods?
First of all, bones are not suitable for vegans, so using them would exclude a large portion of the population. However, in terms of precision, it doesn’t seem like we would be lacking anything significant.
Last night, Apple hosted a event where it revealed new iMacs and MacBook Pros with M3 processors. This update addresses the lack of updates to their popular desktop Mac and adds even more power to their already impressive laptops.
Interestingly, despite previous reports stating otherwise, Apple was rumored to not release any new Mac devices this year. In September, both DigiTimes and Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that M3-based MacBooks would not be available until the following year.
There have been numerous recent rumors, not just this one.
Recently, Mark Gurman proposed that Apple would release updated versions of the Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse, and Magic Trackpad with USB-C connections alongside the new M3-based Macs. However, this did not come to fruition. It is noteworthy that this did not happen, despite some expectations. Additionally, it was anticipated that Apple would also release a new iPad Air this month, but that did not occur either.
The Macalope has more to say. In fact, he may go on a bit longer. He has plenty of time. There were also images of USB-C cables that matched the colors of the devices. Where did those come from? There was speculation that the Apple Watch Ultra would be released in a dark titanium color. And there was talk about the iPhone 15 Pro Max being rebranded as the iPhone 15 Ultra.
Not to mention Scarecrow’s intelligence.
Unfortunately, we have no control over the rumors that circulate. However, the Macalope believes that the most beneficial type of rumor is one that correctly forecasts the release of a new device. These rumors aid in making wise purchasing choices and can prevent costly errors.
For example, purchasing a Power Mac only to find out it was upgraded just a few days later. Or splurging on a titanium PowerBook when the more affordable white iBooks were released two weeks later.
The Macalope is not aware of anyone who has performed those two oddly specific actions.
Apple provided the Macalope with a reimbursement for the price discrepancy on the Power Mac. It is uncertain if the individual involved was actually the Macalope.
On the other hand, the most damaging type of gossip is when it falsely claims that a product will not be released, but then it appears a couple of weeks later. Rating: one out of five stars. Will not read again. Would rate zero stars if able.
DigiTimes can be unreliable, but surprisingly, Kuo is one of the more accurate sources of rumors. He is often correct!
Why do we pay attention to rumors about Apple?
Apple rumors can be entertaining, but it’s important not to take them too seriously. As someone who grew up with rumors in the late 1990s, I remember wild claims like Apple developing crank-powered laptops. Today’s kids might not believe it, but it was an actual rumor from a now-defunct website, not this one.
They will also advise you to refrain from loitering at the adolescent recreation center, with the peculiar elderly man who is solely interested in discussing Apple rumors. Extremely impolite.
While enjoying yourself, you may also come across helpful insights from Apple speculations, but be cautious.
