iOS 16.1 Release, New iPad Pro Introduction, and More to Come

It looks like Apple will have a busy two weeks ahead, with a number of product launches, software updates, and other events scheduled. Five upcoming events of significance for Apple are summarised below for your planning convenience.

Monday, October 24: Release dates for tvOS 16.1 and watchOS 9.1 are likewise expected to be October 24 by Apple, joining iOS 16.1, iPad 16.1, and macOS Ventura. At least eight new features have been included in iOS 16.1, while Stage Manager and other enhancements have been added to iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura. Around 10 AM PT, the revisions will become available.

Tuesday, October 25: At the WSJ Tech Live event on October 25 at 7:35 p.m. Pacific Time, Apple’s software engineering chief Craig Federighi and marketing executive Greg Joswiak will be interviewed by tech columnist Joanna Stern. Federighi and Joswiak will presumably talk about the newest Apple software and, fingers crossed, address the Stage Manager backlash.

Wednesday, October 26: On October 26, buyers will be able to pre-order the new iPad Pro versions with the M2 chip and the redesigned 10th-generation iPad via Apple and select resellers.

Thursday, October 27: On October 27 at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time, Apple will reveal its quarterly financial results for the fiscal year 2022. On a conference call that afternoon at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time, Apple CEO Tim Cook, and Apple CFO Luca Maestri would explain the results.

Friday, November 4: On November 4, customers will start receiving the new Apple TV 4K with the A15 Bionic chip, HDR10+ support, and more. The device will also be available for purchase at Apple Stores and select resellers.
