Apple 'Scary Fast' event live: breaking M3 MacBook news as it happens

Apple 'Scary Fast' event live: breaking M3 MacBook news as it happens

Today, Monday 30 October, Apple is holding an event it's called 'Scary Fast' - and we'll be watching along to find out what kind of treats (and maybe even a few tricks), the Cupertino company has in store.

If it feels like only a few weeks ago since the last major Apple event, it's because that's true. In September, we saw CEO Tim Cook take to the stage to introduce us to the latest range of iPhone 15 handsets, alongside a wristful of new Apple Watches.

So, although Apple is keeping typically quiet about what we can expect at today's event, it's unlikely we'll see yet more iPhones.

Instead, it looks like we could see the debut of several new M3 chips, as well as a new M3 MacBook (2023) and updated iMac as well.

Unlike September's event, there's no 'in-person' keynote from Apple's HQ - instead, the whole thing will be livestreamed. Don't worry, though, as we show you how to watch Apple's 'Scary Fast' event live, so you can watch along as well.

We'll also be giving you the instant news, reactions and opinions on everything Apple shows below.

Welcome to TechRadar's 'Scary Fast' Apple live blog! I'll be watching along as Apple showcases... something. The company has been tight lipped, of course, but there's been some convincing leaks that suggest we'll see some new iMacs and MacBooks tonight.

If you haven't checked out our guide on how to watch Apple's October event, then make sure you pop over there, as we have embedded the live stream there.

It's 11:30pm here in the UK, so this is pretty late for an Apple event - they're usually held earlier in the day. Why is this one kicking off so late (in about 30 mins)? Good question - some people think it might be because it's going to be gaming-focussed and so Apple wants it to be in Japanese business hours.

Others think that as the event is called 'Scary Fast', and it's nearly Halloween, that having it late at night suits the overall theme.

Or, it could just be that Apple hates me. That might be it.
