Gurman: Apple unlikely to hold in-person October event, no Touch ID on iPhone 15


Bloomberg analyst Mark Gurman’s latest newsletter suggests that Apple is canceling its in-person events for new MacBooks, iPads, and Apple TVs and instead announcing the new devices on its website.

Apple will announce new MacBook Pro 14 and 16 models with the latest M2 Pro and M2 Max chipsets, and new iPad Pro 11 and 12.9 models with the standard M2 chip. The Apple TV will also receive an update with the Apple A14 chip and 4GB of RAM.

Apple likely won’t hold an event in person in October, iPhone 15 won’t have Touch ID
Additionally, Gurman suggests that Apple won’t be bringing Touch ID back to his iPhone 15 or the next flagship iPhone for years to come. We could see an iPhone SE with a side-mounted Touch ID scanner built into the power button.

Gurman also said Apple is testing sleep tracking for HomePod speakers in its internal labs but didn’t reveal how the tracking would work.
