What to expect from Apple’s Unleashed event?
Apple will finally be unveiling its highly-anticipated M1X MacBook Pro series today. The new MacBook Pro models will come in two sizes: 14-inch and 16-inch. They’ll feature mini LED displays, which could support 120Hz ProMotion. A wild rumor just ahead of the event also claims that the display will have a notch that will house the FaceTime selfie camera, ambient light sensors, and microphone but no Face ID biometric sensors.
The new MacBook will be a “complete redesign” as leaks have suggested. They’ll have slimmer bezels without the “MacBook Pro” branding at the bottom of the display. They’ll be powered by a more powerful M1X chipset that will reportedly feature a 10-core CPU along with 16-core or 32-core GPU options. They’ll come with more I/O ports in addition to USB-C ports, such as an HDMI port, an SD Card slot, MagSafe charging port, and the good old headphone jack. The 2021 MacBook Pro will lack the infamous Touch Bar.
In addition to the new MacBook Pro models, Apple is also expected to debut its long-due AirPods 3 at the Unleashed event. AirPods 3 are expected to bring a major overhaul to the AirPods series with a close to AirPods Pro design. It’ll support Spatial Audio but there’s nothing concrete if the earbuds will feature Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) or not. There are rumors that Apple could announce a new Mac mini as well.
