Apple is about to release a whole new range of computers. They might be the most important Macs released in recent years – and could decide the near future of Apple. The new computers come at an important time for the company, just days after it reported its worst results in 15 years and said that it wouldn't be able to deliver the EarPods that had been the centre of its plan for the wireless future. And they come at an important time for the Mac, too: many models haven't been meaningfully updated for years, with fans of the computers worrying that more attention is being paid to the iPhones and iPad. The event will be Apple's big chance to turn around all of those worries with new technology.
The future isn't ready to arrive just yet. Apple has announced that its AirPods – the wireless earphones that the company were set to release this month – aren't "ready". The AirPods were first unveiled along with the iPhone 7 at an event last month. And the two were part of the same pitch – just as Apple had done with dropping the headphone jack, the AirPods were meant to signal that the company was ready for the wireless future. The AirPods built from the ground up for Apple's new vision of listening.
Apple has revealed its completely redesigned MacBook Pro, the computer that it hopes can put an end to worries that about its future. The company unveiled the laptop as part of an event at its California headquarters. It also showed off a new TV app – but didn't update any of its desktop computers, as many had hoped, and showed off no new categories of products. The new computer is thinner, lighter and differently shaped from the old MacBook Pro. But the main change is the new screen that's built into the keyboard.
One of the biggest events in the tech calendar is set to take place later this month, with Samsung belatedly preparing to unveil its new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8. It will launch alongside the Galaxy S8, a larger model that's expected to come with many of the same features and specifications. Here's everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy S8 ahead of its release.

Apple has accidentally revealed what appear to be the headline features of its brand new MacBook Pro. The company is holding an event this week where the new computer is expected to be revealed, potentially alongside some other new Mac products. But it might have accidentally shown its hand too early, accidentally unveiling the new computer in hidden screenshots in the new version of macOS. Buried within the files of the updated operating system are a set of photos that appear to be intended to serve as part of the guide of using the computer. Scavengers have already found their way into those resource files and found information about the new computer.
