Apple will hold its next ‘special’ occasion on October 18. The Cupertino-based enterprise just sent out invites for its second fall occasion of the year exactly where it will most probably launch brand new MacBook Pro models with the second-generation M1 program-on-chip, or M1X as it is becoming extensively rumoured. We could also see a more highly effective Mac Mini boasting of the exact same chip plus third generation AirPods which have been previously rumoured to launch alongside the iPhone 13 in September.
The M1X should really be the true showstopper and all hints—and rumour mills—point to that. The theme of the occasion is ‘unleashed’, and the invite tends to make it abundantly clear that ‘speed’ will be the massive takeaway from it. If that wasn’t sufficient, Apple SVP Marketing Greg Joswiak also references the term in a tweet sharing the launch date on Twitter—so that is that.

The M1 was a massive step for Apple as it signalled commence of Cupertino’s transition away from extended-term companion Intel. If something, the M1X is even more eagerly awaited simply because that is exactly where Apple will supposedly kickstart the journey for power—or pro—users. New 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models are anticipated to pack this new chip. A new, more highly effective Mac Mini with M1X is also on the cards.
In its next-gen avatar, the MacBook Pro—14- and 16-inch—will reportedly bring back MagSafe magnetic charging and ditch the close to controversial touch bar that we all adore to hate so a lot. The Mac Mini refresh with M1X is meanwhile mentioned to pack more ports, creating it more beneficial for these searching for more energy and productivity in the hallmark Mac Mini type issue.
The third-gen AirPods have been anticipated to be launched in September but because that by no means occurred, it is attainable we could hear more about them on October 18.
