Largely in line with expectations, we saw a number of Apple product updates this week via press release with the iPad Pro, iPad, and Apple TV. All three products are available to order now with launches coming over the next couple of weeks.
We also got official confirmation of release dates for macOS Ventura and iPadOS 16, while we’re still expecting some Mac-related updates before the end of the year, likely sometime next month, so read on below for all of the details!
Both updates will likely be released around 10 a.m. Pacific Time on Monday.
