Event follows iPhone unveil that took place a month before
Apple Inc. plans to host a virtual event on Oct. 18 that could bring the introduction of new Mac computers. The event carries the "Unleashed" tagline and will kick off at 1 p.m. ET.
The smartphone giant introduced new iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches at a September event but left out announcements about Macs and AirPods, which some expect to come at the October unveil.
Apple (AAPL) is reportedly planning to launch new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops that would feature the company's custom processor, according to The Verge. The company could also be preparing to jazz up its entry-level AirPods earbuds to give them a shorter stem.
Shares of Apple are off 0.2% in Tuesday trading. They've slipped 1.4% over the past three months as the Dow Jones Industrial Average , of which Apple is a component, has declined 1.3%.
