And looks like there is an escape key to the left of the Touch Bar. No such space left of the Touch Bar on the image for the 15-inch model. (the one without the red circle).
Looks completely legit to me, not sure why there is any dispute over its authenticity. @rsgnl verified the files are in the beta., clearly slimmer bezels, clearly bigger screen. Real question is if a MacBook Pro with a slightly bigger screen and new AirPods warrants a keynote.
 
iPad Pro spec updates? And they have to do an Apple TV 4K spec bump for Arcade if nothing else, no? Would be weird not to take advantage of Apple TV+ launch/hype?
 
I don’t think Apple has put out its usual “you should be in Cupertino” or “you should be in the New York area” the week of X, that’s my only reason for doubting an event. But that doesn’t rule one out. Launches are coming though — with or without one.
 
I’d be surprised if they didn’t have a keynote just to spend 20 minutes talking about their best keyboard ever.
 
I could see an event JUST to really try to land Apple TV+ — but everything I’m hearing from Hollywood people is that that stuff is still way behind, so I could also see NOT using an October/November keynote for that. But yeah.

Feb 1. 2018 (Q1 2018) another exception — so the majority of the earnings calls. We do know there is a correlation between earnings call and Apple event dates because they’ve moved a call once (publicly) to clear the day for an event. Also, this could just be a press release too.
All of Apple’s earnings announcements the past two years have been held on a Tuesday -- except in October 2018 when it was held on a Thursday due to the Apple event that Tuesday in New York. This year, Apple’s Q4 earnings will be held on Wednesday, not Tuesday. Just saying.

Seeing (and hearing from others as well) about this error message when trying to update to iPadOS 13.2 beta 2. Perhaps related to the iPad bricking issue some were facing yesterday when updating.
Trying out the new Twitter for Mac. Two things that would be nice would be multi-column mode in full screen like Tweetbot and the ability to swipe between lists from the main screen like you can with official Twitter for iOS.
Interesting Apple Card tidbit: Apple isn’t reporting your balances, payment history yet to the credit bureaus. So if you are on time, no positive impact on your score. If you miss your payments, seemingly not as much of a consequence on your score.
