Apple’s Scary Fast event will be held on October 30 and will focus entirely on Mac. Due to a time zone issue, in Europe it can be followed live streaming starting from 01:00 on October 31st. A rather unusual timebut there could be a very specific reason.

Similar to what was done with the A17 Pro on iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, the much talked about M3 chip for Mac (and in the future also iPad) will guarantee a Hardware-based ray tracing, not about the software.
