At the year-end, the company typically lists out its favourite and popular list of games and apps across various categories and has never hosted a live event for the same. According to CNBC, Apple has not even listed the event on its website.
We do not see Apple launching or unveiling any new products at the December event. The company is scheduled to release the much-anticipated Mac Pro and the Pro Display XDR in December, but the launch invite does not hint anything about the two new hardware products.
