Spooktacular Apple Event on Halloween Eve

Apple scary event

Chalk this one up as something I’ve never seen before: an Apple event in the evening. The company on Tuesday announced a “Scary Fast” event coming Monday, October 30 at 5pm Pacific time.

It’s largely expected that this event will feature new Macs, as reported by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman this weekend: the money seems to be on a refreshed 24-inch iMac, though other announcements are possible.

Given the late hour, it’s likely this event will be entirely pre-recorded. We’re expecting treats over tricks, but the real question is whether we’ll get a glimpse at Tim Cook’s Halloween costume.1

  1. He’s going as the scariest thing he can think of: a Performa 6300CD.
