Yes, but they do also launch things without big splashy announcements too - it really depends on the products at the time and the messaging they want to get out there. A new faster iMac that's otherwise the same as previous models isn't worth shouting about, and likewise, the general public and press probably aren't that bothered about a Mac Pro, so it's less likely they'll have an event for things like that (unless, as I say, they've got a good range of Macs with new stuff that's worth making a combined event for).

Often the pro stuff they take to more pro focused events, so they often tie in Logic or Final Cut updates with events in those industries.

Cheers, interesting. As you can tell am still very new to following/second guessing any Apple news/events. Am sure some would say us late adopters have actually missed the golden era? ;)

The fact they've now got the Steve Jobs Theater on campus makes it easier for Apple to hold fast turnaround 'events' rather than booking the San Fran Moscone Center. But I wouldn't hold your breath for a new Mac Pro in 2018. Phil Schiller's got to get over the excitement those iPhones aroused in him first. ;-)

There were quotes earlier this year that the Mac Pro wouldn't be until 2019.

But there were strong rumours about a new Mac Mini leading up to this week, that's why I raised the issue.
