Apple will be conducting a new event tomorrow. Going by the traditional launch schedule, Apple will be unveiling the new Macbooks during the event. The company is expected to expand its portfolio of laptops powered by its new line of M-series chipsets. Along with MacBook Pro, Apple can also unleash Mac mini, and the long-awaited AirPods 3 in this event as per leaker Dylandkt (via 9to5Mac).
Apple will be launching the 16-inch and 14-inch MacBook Pro laptops. These laptops will be powered by the second chipset in the M-series lineup, which will also be much more powerful compared to the M1 chipset launched last year. The name has not been confirmed yet but it is rumored to be called M1X.
The current M1 chipsets will also continue to power the MacBook Air and the 13-inch MacBook Pro. The new chipset will get up to 16 performance cores and either 16 or 32 GPU cores. MacBook Pros are expected to get a new mini led display as well as a new design.
Although the leaker talked less about the new Mac mini, Dylan believes it will also launch alongside the new MacBook Pros with the new “M1X” chip or whatever Apple’s going to call it. While Apple did update the Mac Mini line-up last year by providing the M1 chipsets, many users demanded more power. That could be the reason why Apple may launch a new M1X powered Mac Mini during Monday’s event.
The shorter stems and a redesigned charging case will make the wireless earphones look modern. However, AirPods 3 will be available at a more affordable price point and won’t come with high-end features like Active Noise Cancellation.
The tipster said that AirPods 3 will have a similar design to the AirPods Pro, just without the ear tips. He tweeted that “tips were shown to be an optional attachment on an early prototype, but recent leaks do not show these tips so it’s likely that they aren’t coming.”
