Apple Scary Fast Event 2023 Highlights: Apple held its highly-anticipated ‘Scary Fast’ launch event on Monday (5:30am on Tuesday in India). An event with no in-person attendance, and, therefore, one that took place only virtually, Scary Fast created intrigue due to the show timing, as well as its tagline (the show was held on the evening before Halloween).
In the end, the tech giant ended up unveiling a new family of M3 chips, a MacBook Pro (14 and 16-inch) with the M3 chips, and 24-inch iMacs with the M3 chip.
