Sources that can be qualified as reliable told MacosXrumors that although there have been many announcements yesterday, Apple is set to release another set of products as soon as next week.
One of the sources gave us good reason to believe this information is true by pointing out that on Saturday 9 (yes, Saturday), Apple had a meeting related to the October 12th announcements, with staff involved in Apple’s retail division. Attendees have also been informed that there is another meeting planed for Saturday the 15th.
The source also explained that a few days before a major product announcement, a certain number of Apple Store staff members usually have a meeting with a briefing on forthcoming products although few details on the new products are given to them.
Although Apple did not explicitly tell its employees that this second meeting was related to another wave of product releases, speculation has already started among staff members.
If there is no misinterpretation, then the two meetings’ schedule with employees involved in Apple’s retail division can be considered as facts. However, at this point, we can’t be sure if the second meeting really has to do with imminent product releases.
PowerMac, and PowerBook updates are still expected to be released soon, while the Mac mini’s update remains to be made official, although Apple has silently started shipping updated Mac minis to customers.
